In association with
We were delighted to once again be visiting Edinburgh, this time for our CyberScotland Week SASIG. We are most grateful to our hosts, Phoenix Group, whose generosity allowed us to arrange this important meeting, at which we discussed a miscellany of security and data protection topics.
CyberScotland Week draws together events across Scotland, each designed to make businesses, organisations and individuals more cyber aware and resilient. The themes for 2023 are protection, innovation, and skills and careers. We curated our day’s agenda to align with these topics, with presentations and panel sessions covering the future of supplier risk management, closing the skills gap, TikTok safety for children, and much more.
