Coherent strategies to combat emerging threats outlined at Security IT Summit

The incessant growth of the Internet in recent years has completely transformed the world in which we now reside. Rapidly evolving into an interconnected global network of systems and information, the Internet has had an overwhelming impact on the business sector.

With more and more systems and devices becoming part of the overall picture, the threat we face is constantly evolving, expanding and diverging. The financial, political and physical damage caused by these threats has never been higher, with critical infrastructure often at the epicentre of attack episodes.

For their part, security experts can struggle to keep pace with the latest developments, continually confronting the cyber attackers in order to make sure their organisations are safe and secure from negative cyber impacts.

Running on Tuesday 5 July at the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel in central London and organised by Forum Events, the Security IT Summit has been designed to draw on the combined expertise of the industry in order to facilitate the development of coherent strategies that will combat emerging threats.
