Location: Shangri La at The Shard


Cyber security is one of the most uncertain areas in any business. How do you make sure your security posture is appropriate for your organisation when the threat landscape is constantly changing? How do you quantify the risks to your business? Also, how do you get buy-in from the leadership board when aligning your security programme with the business strategy, given goalposts are continuously moving?

These are challenges faced by every cyber security professional – and there are no easy answers to be found in point solutions. You can have the most innovative defence tools in place to protect your organisation from cyber threats, but the truth of the matter is that sophisticated attackers will still get through. Instead, the question we need to ask ourselves is this: how do I ensure that new techniques and threats are detected in a timely manner – before they impact the business?

Join Meet the Boss for an evening of engaging and thought-provoking conversation around the realities of modern cyber security, where we will discuss these challenges with award-winning industry leaders in the cyber security space, F-Secure Countercept.

19:00 – 19:20  – Keynote presentation from Peter Cohen

Discussion Topics

  • Are you able to identify the most sophisticated attacks and attackers, and how they are (or aren’t) relevant to your business?
  • How do you choose the right cyber security solutions in a constantly changing cyber threat landscape, and identify where the current gaps in your security portfolio lie?
  • How do you get buy-in from the leadership and on-board them for your ever-changing security requirements?

Keynote Speaker


Peter Wilde, Director F-Secure Countercept

I’m interested in the motivation behind cyber attacks and their impact, along with offensive and defensive techniques – particularly threat hunting. While I’m passionate about growing businesses and overcoming the challenges associated with scale, I’m obsessive over keeping my clients secure while remaining the voice of reason in a runaway industry.
