Cyber Defence & Network Security 2014 Conference

28 January, 2014 - 31 January, 2014, London, United Kingdom

Welcome to Cyber Defence & Network Security 2014: Evolving – Adapting –Defending

The symposium-of-choice for senior Cyber and Network Security Professionals Worldwide

"As more and more state and non-state actors gain cyber expertise, its importance and reach as a global threat cannot be overstated"
James Clapper, US National Intelligence Director

Cyber Defence & Network Security 2014 (CDANS) conference will provide attendees with high-level strategic briefings from 26+ senior international military and cyber experts, as well as valuable and intimate networking opportunities with Heads of CERT, Systems Security, Military IT, Counter Terrorism, and Cyber Crime and Network professionals.

Cyber Security will be the single greatest threat to any nation or corporation within the next 10 years. So… the need to secure, adapt and react to these threats is ever increasing. The potential is there to cripple a military force or even to erode a nation’s ability to function as a state.

In the face of this ever changing threat, CDANS 2014 will ask:

  • What can be done to ‘prepare and prevent’?
  • What is the proportionate response to attacks that cannot be anticipated and that may be far more damaging than originally intended?
  • What can be done to mitigate critical risk on a battlefield with no national borders and varied national policies?
  • What skills and training are required to foster the new generation of Cyber warfighters?

Building on the success of 2013 when over 200+ attendees, 30+ speakers and 24 countries were represented, Cyber Defence & Network Security 2014 will return for its 8th year in London, UK between 28-31 January 2014.
