Tickets for CyNam 19.3: ‘Virtual Threats, Operational Realities’ are now available!

Register here

On Thursday 10th October from 6pm-9pm we are opening the doors for the third CyNam event this year. This next networking event for Cheltenham and Gloucestershire’s cyber security and cyber technology community will be held at Jury’s Inn, Cheltenham.

In addition to the usual opportunities to network, innovate and collaborate, the overarching topic for this evening is ‘Virtual Threats, Operational Realities’. This means we’ll be exploring how operational technology (OT) can grow securely within an open digital ecosystem as we shift from a practical, analogue operating world to one driven by connectivity. We’ll also be looking at what lessons OT can learn from IT as hardware and software lines start to blur.

For CyNam 19.3, we’ll be asking questions such as:

• How can OT grow securely in the open digital space?

• What can ‘connected OT’ learn from IT security?

• Where will digital OT need to travel across industries and supply chains?

As always, tickets are free but limited – you can only reserve one ticket per person. You can register your place from our Eventbrite page:

We look forward to you joining us again soon!
