CEO, First Base Technologies LLP
A crisis is any situation that can affect integrity or reputation.
This could be an act of gross negligence; when a company suffers a breach or a major outage from
malware; a client is adversely affected where the supplier is accountable; the organisation publishes something that is
factually incorrect, libellous or a spokesperson slanders someone in an interview.
During his session, Neil will cover the do's and don'ts of crisis pr to help you prepare so that,
should the worst happen, you can ensure everyone knows what needs to be done so all parties can act quickly and succinctly
to initially contain the situation and ultimately limit any reputational damage.

||Q&A and Discussion
||"Challenging Infosec students to be employable"
The shortage of skilled people in Information Security is well-known but latest figures show that the
full impact of the shortage is now starting to hit companies worldwide. There are over 50 Masters level courses
in the UK with a cyber-security element and even more undergraduate courses, meaning that the UK should be
well-placed to fill the skills gap in graduate level work. Despite this, there are many negative comments about
the suitability and attributes of the "cyber/infosec" graduates being produced. Part of this talk will look at
possible reasons for this.
The Ethical Hacking degree at Abertay University is widely-recognised as producing
vocational graduates who are very suitable for the security testing industry. This talk examines what has
happened in the 10 years that this course has been running, why the course has been largely successful and
also looks at the future directions of the course.
