Dr Daniel Prince, senior lecturer in security and protection science at Lancaster University, said: “Cyber security is not just a technical issue, it should be embedded across an organisation’s culture

and processes. Leaders in this area are essential to help ensure individuals, companies and society are safe and protected in the digital age.

“The Cyber Security Leadership Symposium brings together highly-regarded cyber leaders and practitioners to share their experiences and knowledge with the community, including those aspiring to be leaders in cyber security.”

The free two-day event will take place on Tuesday, July 5 and Wednesday, July 6, at Lancaster University’s Bailrigg Campus. The Symposium will provide insights for senior leaders hosted at one of the UK’s leading higher education institutions for cyber security and data analysis.
