Secure digital government: are you prepared?

Sponsored by: Akamai Technologies

Focused on:

  • Flexible Cloud Services
  • Web Security

Date: 18 April


Time: 11AM London

It’s an unfortunate truth that government organisations will always be a target for cyber crime. Government is responsible for some of the most critical and sensitive systems around, handling large volumes of payments, mission-critical transactions and highly sensitive data.

As more of government is digitised and networked, public services are becoming increasingly dependent on safe and secure web connectivity. Public sector organisations must ensure that security isn’t an afterthought or that it’s just another technical challenge; it’s also about change management.

Our expert speakers will get you started on that journey, with a practical and insightful briefing on what you need to know about web security for government, and how to embed the right technology and capability in your organisation.

Presented by
