Cyber attacks are increasingly a common threat for organisations and the requirement to develop a proactive strategy to mitigate and manage cyber-based crises has never been more prominent. 

At the heart of this transition are the business leaders that are expected to design, manage and implement a robust cyber security strategy for their organisation. 

The invitation-only event will form the Executive Forum programme alongside the Telco and Media Innovation Forum and the Leaders’ Forum, a new initiative designed to attract 450 C-level experts to debate the industry’s biggest challenges and opportunities.
