Exploring the Dark Web – Cybercrime and Cyber Security in the Digital Age

May 27 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm


Technological breakthroughs have enabled humanity to advance in a pace and manner that only a few decades ago would not have been imagined.

Ironically this brings with it some of the greatest challenges we also face today.

From countries, states and large economies, through to private or public companies, not-for-profit organisations, down to individuals like you, are all exposed to an ever increasing technological threat – Cyber related threats.

Most organisations, irrespective of size gather an enormous amount of information and corporate intellectual property. Often the information they have is very sensitive making it a target for attacks which are generally aimed at gathering information, harming information, or disabling services. Such attacks can damage an organisation’s reputation, endanger virtual and physical assets which result in significant financial costs. Cyber attacks on government and public bodies and infrastructure may disrupt the lives of an entire state and even compromise the wellbeing and security of its citizens.

Our presenters are at the forefront of cyber security intelligence and the insights they share will enable attendees to underestand these problems and offer possible solutions.
