WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?

The biggest prize for cyber criminals and attackers is government. Whether its critical infrastructure, basic online services or the massive data held by government, all countries are vulnerable to attack. This trend relentlessly increases every year, and the Middle East is no exception. Uniquely, those who work in government don’t just have to protect their own departments, but they are also part of a tapestry that has to defend the citizen and private sector.

In this unique master class, leading security agencies from Singapore and the UK come together to deliver in depth tutorage to a select and high-level audience, especially concentrating on the strategic imperatives to sound and holistic cyber defence. The Master Class is an informal setting where you are encouraged to challenge the advice of the tutors, to engage with your class mates, and bring to the discussion real world examples – and of course, the world class professionals leading the Master Class are always happy to give their advice about any predicaments your organisation might face.

The Master Class will focus on the following themes:

  • Best practice emergency response to a crisis.
  • Interoperability and coordination between security agencies and government departments.
  • Trends in the threat vectors facing government organisations, and how to respond to them.
  • Case studies about cybercrime and policy frameworks designed to prevent the causes of it:

– The aetiology of the UK NCA’s Prevent approach
– An introduction to the cyber-dependent criminal career pathway
– Examples of online and offline operational case studies to prevent cyber crime
– Interactive work group
