Building an agile cyber-security culture

The award-winning TEISS (The European Information Security Summit) is now the largest and most comprehensive cyber security summit in Europe, from the portfolio of Business Reporter.

It features parallel conferences on culture and education, data and technology, and on securing the Internet of Things – giving you three conferences in one. In addition, it also features dedicated training sessions for small groups, and the ability to build a bespoke agenda that suits your exact challenges.

Join 500+ Cyber Security and Information Technology professionals to discuss the latest issues.



Culture and Education session

The biggest challenge to getting cyber security right is not technology – it’s staff. Uneducated staff are the main point of weakness for hackers, but training programmes are often too technical for most people to remember and many cyber security processes get in the way of daily work so are ignored. This stream will give case studies of training programmes that worked, and steps that can be taken to mitigate the risk.

Perfect for: CIO, Chief Risk Officer, CISO, Head of Business Resilience, Head of Business Intelligence, Head of Business Continuity

What will be discussed?

The forecast evolution of cyber crime, and what we must do differently to combat it

Best practices for instilling a pervasive corporate culture of cyber security

Securing data and identity across the cloud and outside the perimeter

The challenges and opportunities of identity management in the Internet of Things

Creating agile systems that can adapt to new forms of attack

Improving cyber security in the extended enterprise

Data and Technology session

Technology is changing, and the hackers are using it too. That means it’s essential to understand what it can do, how it can be used against you, how it can benefit your security procedures, and how it will change them. This stream will look at behavioural analysis, machine learning, AI, quantum computing encryption, and behaviour analytics, in the context of both hacking and corporate usage.

Perfect for: CTO, CISO,  Head of Data Security, Head of Cloud, Head of IT

Why come to TEISS?

Securing the Internet of Things session

The increasing number of connected devices massively increases the vulnerability of a corporate network. Many of these devices have no security protocols built in or registered with the IT department. This stream will look at best practices for managing security processes in the Internet of Things, including estate management, encryption and authentication.

Perfect for: Head of Compliance, Head of Privacy, Head of Governance, Chief Technical Architect and Head of IT Security.

CPD Certified
