The latest in the Pembroke-BT Lecture series.

Cyber security is one of the greatest man-made challenges of our time. The frequency and impact of Cyber-crime is increasing and we need to continuously adapt and innovate to stay ahead of the threat environment. It might surprise you, but the cost of Cybercrime is set to reach £5 trillion annually by 2021, up from £2.5 trillion just a year ago, Cybersecurity spending will exceed £800 billion from 2017 to 2021, Up to 200 billion Internet of Things (IoT) devices will need securing by 2020 and human attack surface is predicted to reach 4 billion people by 2020. Security innovation is an essential defence against new threats.

With cyber-crime rising year-on-year it’s more important than ever to know that your data is safe; and a vital part of providing a secure digital world is staying a step ahead of cyber threats. During the London 2012 Games, BT’s security systems analysed nearly 11,000 ‘incidents’ or attacks on the BT network every second! In this Talk, Professor Ben Azvine, BT’s Global Head of Security Research and Innovation will focus on the future of Cyber defence and how advanced technology including artificial intelligence with data visualisation will assist humans in identifying interesting or anomalous patterns in huge amounts of different types of data, so that Cyber detectives can ‘hunt the bad guys’ online and keep our data, applications and networks safe.
