We are delighted to return to Edinburgh for a second event this year, hosted by Lloyds Banking Group. Understanding the delicate balance between awareness and resilience is paramount in a rapidly evolving cyber landscape. This event brings together experts to dissect the intricate relationship between these two pillars of cybersecurity. Our panel sessions and interactive simulations will provide invaluable insights into safeguarding critical infrastructure, protecting data integrity, and fortifying organisational defences.

We welcome several attendees from each organisation – security managers accompanied by their legal, HR, procurement/supply colleagues, etc. This combination has worked exceptionally well at a whole variety of SASIG events. It generates energised and productive discussions, and we know it has subsequently led to closer working relationships amongst those who have attended together. We wish to build upon this success, and your help will be most gratefully received. Join us as we explore how awareness and resilience converge to fortify our digital future against emerging threats.
