CyNam 20.2 – The Changing Scene of Cyber

Virtual event

June, 2020

It was an action-packed day for the CyNam team and our community as we headed to the DRPG studios in Worcester to deliver our very first, socially distanced virtual event – CyNam 20.2 – The Changing Scene of Cyber. Going virtual meant that an opportunity arose to engage with the wider community outside of Cheltenham, which was a goal from the outset.

During these uncertain times, the topic “The Changing Scene of Cyber” spurred on a remarkable set of conversations from industry thought leaders around a range of topics pertaining to the current climate and the impact it has had on cybersecurity, not only for businesses but for opportunities in our field in terms of education, public sector and innovation. With over 800 attendees joining the event, it was clear that this topic was front of mind for the cyber community.
