Event Details

The must-attend conference for Scotland’s cyber and security professionals

Join us to find out how Scotland’s Cyber Leaders would respond in the event of a cyber-attack on Scotland and our public services, how are we positioning Scotland as a leader in data and digital security and about the the soon to be renewed Scottish Government Cyber Resilience Action Plan.

Scotland’s Cyber Leaders Response to a Wide Scale Cyber Attack

What happens in the event that Scotland is hit by a hostile cyber-attack targeting national digital infrastructure? It’s a question that is top of mind among infosec professionals across the country, who are increasingly alive to critical incident response post Covid-19. Join our leading cyber agencies from across the public sector as they outline how they would deploy counter measures in an emergency and how resilience is being built into digital systems amid rising cyber threat levels experienced during lockdown.


The pandemic has seen a huge shift to digital as people and businesses shift their transactions and operations online. Threat vectors are increasing all the time and our workplaces and public services are now part of a wider patchwork of systems that comprise our critical national infrastructure. Our cyber leaders will demonstrate how closer strategic alignment is helping to make Scotland a more resilient country – and an international exemplar of best practice – through Covid-19 and beyond.

Economic development, national incident response and partnership working with the private sector will benefit from alignment with updated Cyber Action Plans. Hear from the National Cyber Resilience Leaders’ Board, Police Scotland and the Scottish Business Resilience Centre.
