AFCEA West – April 2021 – David Ferbrache – Global Head of Cyber Futures, KPMG
Apr 15 @ 17:00 – 18:15

AFCEA West – Virtual Meeting

Dovetailing very neatly with The London Chapter’s March event, the Guest Speaker for our meeting on 15th April will be David Ferbrache – Global Head of Cyber Futures at KPMG.  The topic of his presentation will be “The hard realities of cyber security in the commercial world – the state of the art, the challenges and the scary moments”.

  • The trap of compliance and the struggles firms have to really create a business understanding of cyber risk and how to manage it.
  • The interconnected ecosystem and the need for community action to manage systemic risk and resilience.
  • The changing threat landscape and the rise of cyber extortion – the failures of our policy responses and the misalignment of incentives to counter cyber crime.

David is an acknowledged UK national cyber security expert and is the Head of Global Cyber Futures for KPMG international.  He leads KPMG’s global COVID-19 cyber response, future work on emerging technologies, alliance and partnerships and innovation agenda on cyber; as well as working with KPMG’s largest clients.

Prior to joining KPMG, David was a major contributor to the UK’s first national cyber security strategy, has been involved in establishing most of the UK’s initial national cyber security structures and organisations and led the delivery of the Defence Cyber Security Programme as the Head of Cyber and Space for the Ministry of Defence (MoD).  During his time in MoD, David held a number of senior director level roles including responsibility for a  large element of MoD’s science budget, lead for MoD’s research and development programme into cyber and influence activities and technical director (and fellow) for Information Operations in the Defence Evaluation and Research Agency.  David established the first MoD penetration testing team and undertook the first UK national infrastructure resilience reviews.

David is currently the chair of the Scottish government National Cyber Resilience Advisory Board and was a major contributor to the Scottish government’s cyber resilience strategy.
