Vital Topics: Cyber Security – 5 dominating trends


Thursday 9 March, Alliance Manchester Business School East.

Can you trust your digital footprint anymore? In recent times, high profile email hacks have ruptured reputations and caused tremors which have, without exaggeration, altered the course of history.

Whether it’s the breaches which caused a huge dent in the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton, or the revelations made around the inner workings of David Beckham plc, cyber security failings are having a massive impact on the world around us, putting the topic into sharp scrutiny.

Alliance Manchester Business School has gathered a top panel of cyber security experts who’ll be discussing the dominating trends within the subject, providing a crucial insight into what must be done to tackle cyber security both now and in the future.
