CyNam 20.1 – The Human Element of Cyber Technology will focus on how every aspect from attacking, defending or securing has a human element. This element profoundly affects all the other components and guarantees that there can be no silver bullet in cyber security.

Join us as we seek to discover the impacts, motivations and answers to combatting, enhancing and utilising the human element in both cyber security and cyber technology.

CyNam is the biggest regular cyber technology event in the South West, dedicated to bringing the Cheltenham and Gloucestershire cyber security and technology community together for evenings of presentations, networking and collaboration.
