Helping security buyers and installers to navigate the complex world of cyber security is the aim of a forthcoming event organised by the British Security Industry Association (BSIA), supported by the Fire Industry Association (FIA), and taking place in Solihull on Wednesday 4th October.
This free-to-attend, half-day event will include presentations from a wide range of cyber security experts, with a particular focus on the potential vulnerabilities of ‘connected products’ – meaning any security product that can be accessed or operated remotely via the internet (intruder alarms, video surveillance systems and access control) – and how these vulnerabilities can be combated.
Delegates will be informed about the potential cyber risks facing their business, with presentations from the West Midlands Police digital cyber crime team and an engaging and surprising demonstration from the Scottish Business Resilience Centre’s team of ‘ethical hackers’. Attendees will also find out how they can combat the cyber threats they face, with presentations outlining the benefits of Cyber Essentials accreditation and introducing the BSIA’s ongoing work in the field of cyber security. Finally, delegates will benefit from a summary of the new GDPR regulation, set to come into force in early 2018.
The event is open to security and fire buyers and installers, or indeed anybody from either industry with an interest in improving their business’ cyber security and data protection policies. Register for free here.
Exhibition space is also available to those companies wishing to showcase their products and services to a range of delegates from the security and fire sectors. A limited number of stands are still available to book, priced at £395 + VAT for BSIA and FIA members, and £495 + VAT for non-members. Book exhibition space online here.
Registration for the event will be open from 9:00am, with presentations kicking off at 09:45 and the event expected to finish at around 13:30. A full programme and online booking forms for both delegates and exhibitors are all available from our events web page
