960 640 Stuart O'Brien

Identifying threats and educating staff about safety are the key issues for the UK’s cyber security professionals in 2018.

The findings come from a survey of the senior cyber security professionals attending this summer’s Security IT Summit, which takes place on July 3rd at the Hilton London, Canary Wharf.

These professionals include representatives from the likes of DXC Technologies, Financial Ombudsman Services, Freight Transport Association, London Stock Exchange Group, Marshall Motor Group, O2 Telefonica, Prudential, The Guardian, Vodafone and many more.

While the majority have highlighted a general cyber security strategy as the number one issue, are prominent areas of interest, closely followed by Access Control, Intrusion Detection, Malware, Penetration Testing and Phishing Detection.

“With a number of high profile breaches over the past 12 months, cyber security has never been so important to businesses and organisations of all sizes,” said Senior Portfolio Sales Manager Chris Cannon. “As our research demonstrates, analysing the threat of security and educating staff are key issues.”
