Dynamo Launches #CyberFest for September 2018

Cyber security is major concern for everyone and should be considered as part of a wider resilience agenda for the region. This is why Dynamo is creating a new type of coordination, one that involves all aspects of cyber resilience including those involved in commercial delivery, research and development, learning, regional resilience and users of technology.

The cyber workstream brings together these components in a coordinated way that promotes the North East as:

  • A region of high cyber awareness and infrastructural resilience.
  • A centre of excellence in the delivery of Cyber related services.
  • A centre of excellence in the delivery and development of high quality students and employees.
  • Noted for research and development in cyber.

To move forward with this, Dynamo, in partnership with Accenture, is launching #CyberFest, a series of cyber related events across the region during September.

The aim of #Cyberfest is:

To raise awareness of the North east as a place to address cyber resilience; to get people engaged in the Dynamo work stream; educate and inform of the threats and opportunities from cyber.

This will be achieved through:

A series of events covering the North East during September 2018, including:

Confirmed:

  • September 5 – #CyberNorth: One-day business event in Newcastle hosted by Northumbria University. More info & to book
  • September 13 – Business event in Tees Valley hosted at The Curve by Teesside University. More details to follow
  • September 14 – Breakfast event at the ORE Catapult in Blyth hosted by ORE Catalpult and ARCH. More details to follow
