Bridging the gap between academia and industry is important. And so is the promotion of scientific understanding in the community. Understanding and applying scientific research can have a significant impact on organisational practices.
SASIG is delighted to hand over to CybSafe for the day, hosts of Impact2020. This all-day online conference covers all the latest academic research on the human aspect of cybersecurity, facilitating discussion and collaboration between academia and industry. World leading-academic experts will discuss the latest research implications for policy and practice.
If you believe in knowledge transfer between academic research and organisations, this day is for you.
