Keynote Address,
Machine Learning for Cyber Security, Miranda Mowbray, University of Bristol

According to Symantec, there were 357 million new malware variants last year. This is too large a number for the variants to be dealt with individually by hand; some automation is necessary. Miranda will give an example of how machine learning can be used to identify malware variants, including ones that have never been seen before. I will also discuss some of the difficulties of using machine learning for cybersecurity, and ways to address these.

From Compliance to Culture, From Awareness to Action
John Scott, Head of Information Security Education, Bank of England

The Bank of England has been running its cyber security education campaign for three years and learned many lessons during this time which we believe apply to organisations of all types. Through our work with stakeholders of all levels of seniority and business area we have developed training techniques and topics that we find can deliver real results in creating a just and secure culture. We will also take you through our “Cyber Seven” principles – what we ask our colleagues to bear in mind when it comes to staying secure
