“Help! Get Me Out of the Cyber Jungle - GDPR & NIS Awareness Day” Wednesday
25th January 2017
Wednesday 25th January 2017 9:30– 17:00, Lord Ashcroft Building (LAB002),
Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge.
The UK Cyber Security Forum Cambridge Cluster, Cambridgeshire Police, OWASP
Cambridge Chapter, Anglia Ruskin University Department of Computing &
Technology & Policing Institute in the Eastern Region are looking to put on
a series of interactive 1 Day Workshops on raising awareness for local
businesses & organisations on the issues of cyber security and cyber crime,
what regulations and legislation do organisations need to be aware to
protect themselves and what is considered best practice in these
The initial event is on Wednesday 25th January and aimed at raising
awareness and the importance of the General Data Protection Regulation
(GDPR) & the European Directive on security of network and information
systems (NIS Directive).
Even with ongoing uncertainty around our place in or out of Europe
following the BREXIT decision and with the recent launch of the UK
Government Cyber Security Strategy, understanding the importance of GDPR is
especially critical and will be a major component for UK businesses,
academia, public bodies and other not for profit sectors. The strategy
document makes it clear of the importance of the GDPR....
“The Government will invest to maximise the potential of a truly innovative
UK cyber sector. We will do this by supporting start-ups and investing in
innovation. We will also seek to identify and bring on talent earlier in
the education system and develop clearer routes into a profession that
needs better definition. The Government will also make use of all available
levers, including the forthcoming General Data Protection Regulation
(GDPR), to drive up standards of cyber security across the economy,
including, if required, through regulation.”
The Cambridge Cyber Security Cluster is an affiliate UK Cyber Security
Forum, a government and industry led partnership which will look at how the
region can develop the skills and infrastructure to combat cyber security

visible, so that people and organizations can make informed decisions about
true application security risks.
The Department of Computing & Technology at Anglia Ruskin University is
enhancing its curricula and capabilities in information security following
its successful BSc(Hons) Information Security and Forensic Computing

“Cyber enabled crime: the challenge for national and local police” Nick
Alston CBE, PIER Chair
British policing continues, rather slowly, to evolve its response to cyber
enabled crime. Enthusiastic specialist units of different sizes and
capabilities are dispersed across different policing organisations,
inclusion the National Crime Agency, the Metropolitan Police and some other
larger forces, and in regional units supporting local police. With policing
facing many challenges of changing crime, a proper focus on personal crimes
against the vulnerable and continuing budget pressures, cyber-crime is
rarely a priority. There is also a significant skills and capacity gap.
Cyber-crime will attract more focus as fraud, much of which is cyber
enabled receives more attention this year with the publication of fraud
crime data. The impact of the GDPR on the police is uncertain: the
Information Commissioner is the competent UK authority and UK criminal law
may need reform if the UK seeks to come fully into line with the intentions
of the EU.
“Navigating Brexit and GDPR” – Paul Rowley FBCS, Havebury Housing
We need a fundamental re-think about personal data. For too long, data
protection has been seen as just a nuisance, a layer of bureaucracy.
Actually, if you understand its value and the benefits of looking after
personal data properly, it can help you improve your customer service, it
can empower you to use personal data in innovative ways and it can give
confidence to your customers
to share it. The new EU data protection regulations, GDPR, will be here and
a re-think about personal data will help you to embrace it, not fear it.
"I bet we all have finance departments who look after money. Why? Because
it has a value. If we give personal data a value, you find that your
employees think more about it. When we store personal data about
individuals, we become custodians and if you know that that piece of
personal data has a value, they will care more for it."
“NIS, GDPR and Cyber Security: The convergence of cyber and compliance risk”
- Tony Drewitt, Head of Consultancy, IT Governance
Tony’s presentation will examine
Today’s cyber threat environment
Key requirements for General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
breaches and notifications
The technical and organisational measures that organisations need to
adopt to comply with
The Network and Infrastructure Directive
Cyber resilience, the role of international standards and the Cyber
'GDPR readiness for start-ups, technology businesses and professional
practices' - Martin Cassey – Nascenta Ltd, Cambridge
The GDPR significantly extends the scope of existing data protection
legislation in the UK and the EU. Examples of this include strict controls
on the use of technology for profiling, mandating rapid disclosure of
breaches and increasing penalties for non-compliance.
Whether you consider the GDPR to be an example of unnecessary
bureaucracy or welcome it as a further reduction of barriers to trade
across the world’s largest single market, it is has been clearly and
repeatedly stated by Ministers since the June referendum that the GDPR is
going to be applied in the UK.
The impact that the GDPR will have on your business will depend on what
you do and how you prepare for its implementation.
We will briefly review the key points of the directive, highlighting
differences with the UK’s existing Data Protection Act. We will then
consider the steps that start-ups, technology businesses and professional
practices should be taking now to ensure compliance when the regulation
takes effect on 25th May 2018.
“GDPR – How is industry addressing the legislation” - Mark Pearce, 7Safe/PA
The presentation will set the scene for EU GDPR, followed by drawing out
the major elements of the regulation. It will detail the impact on
organisations and some of the approaches we are seeing that organisations
are taking to address the legislation. It will go a layer lower in
exploring the areas of potential negotiation pre and post adoption and then
look at the information requirements with additional data and processes
that will be required. It will then cover the data discovery challenge and
some of the associated tooling, before finishing with some ideas on how to
get more corporate support and leverage assistance and make it more
productive than just a compliance checkbox exercise.
