Dr. Jessica Barker
Co-Founder and co-CEO of Cygenta

Cyber security is often perceived as a very technical discipline, but people are just as important as technology in this field. This session will explore the human side of cyber security; why awareness, behaviour and culture are so important to cyber security; what lessons we are learning from Covid-19; and what we can do to better understand people-centric cyber security. Join Dr. Jessica Barker for an engaging, informative and empowering session that will bring cyber security to life in a way you might not have thought of before.
