PSE365: Data Protection: Rebuilding Public Trust

PSE365: Data Protection: Rebuilding Public Trust 

The first session of the PSE365: Cyber Security Virtual Event was opened by Brindha McDonald, Chief Security Officer, Government Property Agency covering the public sector cyber security landscape.

Data has been at the heart of many public sector organisations’ responses to the global pandemic and with the UK Government launching a consultation on reforms to create an ambitious, pro-growth and innovation friendly data protection regime in a post-Brexit UK, data is going to continue to be an integral part of public services.

 With the public being more conscious about how their data is handled, the sector is under immense pressure to ensure data is protected and secure from malicious data breaches and attacks.

In this panel discussion, hear from leaders on how public sector organisations can take vital steps to protect data from malicious data breaches, gain insight on how to mitigate risk, learn how take a proactive approach to data protection and security and how the reform could impact public sector organisations.

Guest Panellists:

James Neville, Information Security Expert and Lead Auditor, SGS
Professor Eerke Boiten, Head of the School of Computer Science and Informatics, De Monfort University
Professor Mark Ryan, Professor in Computer Security for the School of Computer Science and Lead for the Centre of Security and Privacy, University of Birmingham
