How did The National Cyber
Security Show materialise?
During the various lockdowns
there has been a seismic shift in
our daily working routines with home
working becoming commonplace. In
turn, this has created an entirely new set
of cyber risks for businesses.
Throughout the last 18 months, cyber
attacks on UK companies have been
front page news. In particular, there has
been an increase in the frequency and
severity of attacks on UK SMEs.
Looking at the landscape of cyber
events, we wanted to create a platform
for imparting practical and business-focused
cyber security knowledge that
will help to make UK plc more resilient.
Over one third of the visitors who
attended the inaugural edition of The
Security Event stated that a very keen
area of interest for them was/is cyber
security. We’ve built on that momentum
and separated out cyber security such
that it has a show in its own right.
What does the content
programme for The National
Cyber Security Show look like?
The National Cyber Security
Show has its own dedicated
content programme. The Cyber Security
Conference will address the big topics
across the cyber security industry, in
turn offering practical and easily
digestible advice for UK SME businesses
and their owners.
The Cyber Security Solutions Theatre
is focused on issues including the hybrid
workplace, understanding IT and risk
management, vulnerability scanning,
cyber secure behaviours and putting in
place defences to thwart hacking
attempts. Visitors can also access the
cyber security clinic on site for free.

How committed is the
Nineteen Group to help
Britain into a position where it’s
back trading at full capacity in the
wake of COVID-19?
We firmly believe that nothing

replicate face-to-face interaction. Trade
shows and events are vital.
