Jeremy Newman- To identity… and beyond!
Jeremy Newman argues that organisations are to blame for creating the conditions in which social engineering can succeed and that – contrary to conventional wisdom – users are the strongest link in security, not the weakest. We’re just asking them the wrong question. He previews a new password-free way of performing authentication, and concludes that the identity problem won’t be solved by banks, nor by the state, nor even by computers alone – but by people.
(Other speakers TBC)
The Yorkshire Cyber Security Cluster has been formed, under the umbrella of the UK Cyber Security Forum, by a number of cybersecurity-focused businesses in the Yorkshire region.
The aims of the cluster are two-fold:
To support the members of the cluster by communicating National and International initiatives and trade opportunities, providing a networking platform to share ideas and best practice, encouraging collaboration and identifying partnership opportunities so that small cybersecurity specialist businesses in Yorkshire can find new ways to grow.
To support the British Government’s commitment to Cyber Security (and UK Government’s Cyber Security Strategy) by building cyber security knowledge, skills and capabilities in the Region, to make businesses more resilient to cyber attacks and the Yorkshire region one of the most secure places in the world to do business.
