MWR is delighted to announce that we're sponsoring CYBERUK 2017 in Liverpool.

Event Description

CYBERUK 2017 will be the Government’s biggest and most influential IA and Cyber Security event to date. It will be hosted by the National Cyber Security Center (NCSC) five months after the organization’s launch. It will share the vision for achieving a step change in UK cyber resilience.  

CYBERUK 2017 will be two events in one. It will include the Government’s IA and Cyber Security Flagship event, which for the past decade has been the principal vehicle for engaging with IA and Cyber Security leaders. It will also combine CYBERUK In Practice, the event for the professional community.

CYBERUK Strategy (March 14, 2017) will be the Government’s primary conference for briefing 800+ cyber security and IA leaders from across Government, CNI, Industry and Academia. It will feature a Networking Dinner at Liverpool’s historic St George’s Hall on the evening of Monday 13 March.

CYBERUK In Practice (March 15-16, 2017) will bring together the professional communities. This will include specialists in the design and development of online services and systems, procurement and all areas of ICT delivery. It will be an opportunity to share insights, updates and engagement over the cyber security challenges we all face.

At CYBERUK 2017 you will hear from senior Government Ministers, Director GCHQ, the NCSC CEO and Technical Director. Streams will be shaped by NCSC Deputy Directors and Technical Directors. They will be supported by a line-up of UK and international cyber security experts from Government, Industry, the CNI and Academia.

Talks presented by MWR

  • Date: Tuesday March 14, 2017
  • Time: 13:15:00
  • Room: 4A, Upper Level
  • Topic: Incident Management Workshop
  • Speakers: Paul Pratley and Ed Parsons
  • Description: Like a blizzard in central London, critical cyber security incidents are infrequent but impactful events that security and management teams need to prepare for. Exercising crisis management teams enables them to practice their role in responding to cyber incidents and is essential to maintaining this capability.

    MWR will facilitate a critical incident simulation with attendees that have a role in crisis management. The purpose of this workshop is to assist management teams in preparing for real world cyber incidents by performing a table top exercise to systematically walk through some of the critical decision-making they must perform to support technical response teams.

    This session will leverage MWR’s experience in investigating data breach incidents to provide attendees with a real world scenario in an interactive session. 

    From this session, attendees along with MWR facilitating the scenario will:

    · Exercise roles and responsibilities after an incident is detected
    · Understand the trade-offs involved in containing incidents
    · Practice making difficult decisions that have business impact to reduce long-term risk during active incidents
    · Understand the considerations that are unique to cyber security incidents


  • Date: Wednesday March 15, 2017
  • Time: 14:00:00
  • Room: 3A, Upper Level
  • Topic: Honeypots and Detective Ops
  • Speakers: Dr Dave Chismon
  • Description: This talk will look at honeypots and how they work, their benefits and their failings.
