The Turing Trust: bridging the digital divide in Africa

CSP was proud to welcome the Turing Trust as its Charity Partner 2017. The Turing Trust, set up in 2009 by Alan Turing's closest family, aims to promote education and training through the use of information technology in Sub-Saharan Africa. By reusing equipment we aim to provide training opportunities and skills development both in Africa and in the UK, whilst reducing waste and supporting a more sustainable and environmentally friendly society. Dr. Nicola Turing presented on the work done by, and 'real life challenges' encountered by, the Turing Trust.

Dr. Nicola Turing previously worked as an NHS Consultant and Clinical Lead for IT. Now retired, Nicola coordinates Turing Trust's online activity and development of e-learning content.

The Machine in our Ghosts: Homo Sapiens Cyborgia; Evolution or Extinction?

Wiener's conclusion was clear, and correct, humans "have modified our environment so radically that we must now modify ourselves in order to exist in this new environment. We can no longer live in the old one."

As both a businessman and as an academic, Professor Williams is a leading figure in the international cyber security community with twenty years of experience in enterprise IT, Information Assurance and cyber security.
As an academic, he is developing a body of work around the human, intellectual, cultural, societal and historical context of computing which he is delivering across a series of lectures, seminars and papers. He is an honorary fellow at the university of Warwick and a visiting professor at De Montfort University.
Professor Williams consults and speaks on cyber, cyber security and strategic enterprise IT procurement in the UK and internationally. He is Chairman of CSP and editor in chief of “CyberTalk”, a journal for the promotion and development of fresh and interdisciplinary thinking about cyber and the human relationships with computers.

10:45 Trend Micro

Business Process Compromise - the New Normal

Online criminals already have business email compromise down to a fine art, extracting billions of dollars from businesses small and large, compared to the payback from ransomware attacks, the rewards are obvious. What if there were a way, more insidious, more remunerative and more difficult to detect to make such an attack stick for a prolonged period?

Meet Business Process Compromise, the new normal.
