Security and Trust – How to empower and protect all users

The next Tommy Flowers Institute Conference is scheduled for 26th and 27th September 2017 at Adastral Park.

The conference is entitled “Security and Trust – How to empower and protect all users?”

As ICT becomes an increasingly central part of society, the ICT industry must protect our customers and ourselves – from deliberate external and internal attacks and from both external events and unintended internal accidents. Technology can empower users so that they can protect themselves and their data, but these new capabilities can in turn enable new kinds of attack, or have unintended consequences, so there is constant evolution across technology, user behaviour, and the perception of human rights. Users need to trust the underlying infrastructure in order to make full use of it, and maintaining users’ trust requires a credible track-record of secure operation, when the technology base is constantly evolving. So the ICT industry itself needs to be able to trust the AI and other mechanisms we are using to manage and protect our infrastructure.”

As with our Spring and Summer Conferences, we will have key industry and government speakers, and we will offer our large audience of postgraduate researchers and academics the chance to question and network with them. I attach our general brochure, plus briefings from our last three events.

Please save the date in your calendar now and we will be sending out more information over the summer or you can register your attendance now by going to:
