TriCyCIS 2020 & 6th AFCEA London Chapter Cyber Dinner
Our TriCyCIS 2020 conference and post conference dinner on 24th June 2020 will be held at Royal Holloway, University of London, in the Windsor Building Conference Suite and afterwards in the magnificent Founders’ Dining Hall.
The theme for this year’s Cyber Security focussed Conference is “Security and Prosperity in a Changing World?”
We will take a deliberately challenging approach, designed to explore the reality of achieving both security and prosperity in ways that create and maintain business/operational resilience. Senior Leaders face seemingly impossible choices every day – this conference provides a platform to find new answers, gain new perspectives and, importantly, to network with existing partners and create new contacts.
Speakers are drawn from a wide range of expertise and experience (including our Young AFCEA community) from across Defence / Government / Law Enforcement / Business & Academia, enabling the audience to hear not only from thought leaders in their own sector but from others facing the same dilemmas. Speakers have been asked to provide some new food for thought and stimulation for the debate and discussion which we plan to facilitate and encourage throughout the day and on into the formal post conference dinner.
The event microsite is here: www.tricycis.uk .
Regular updates will be posted as we develop the conference programme and confirm speakers etc. In the meantime, you can book and pay here https://tricycis.uk/price-booking/ for:
- delegate places for the conference
- individual seats at the post conference dinner
- pop-up banner exhibit space
