Despite the cold weather, a fantastic turnout of over 180 people enjoyed the inaugural CyNam (Cyber Cheltenham) event held at Jury’s Inn hotel on Thursday evening. Introduced by event host, Chris Dunning-Walton (MD, InfoSec People), CyNam marked the relaunched and rebranded Cheltenham Cyber Tech Hub and boosted a great speaker agenda, including:
- Head of Innovation, GCHQ
- David Balson, Ripjar
- Richard Yorke, MD Deep Sky Blue Solutions
- Steve Mason, VP & Head of Strategy, L-3TRL
- Alex Chalk, MP for Cheltenham
Addresses ranged from the lessons learned in successfully establishing a Cyber Start-up to how Cyber attacks shaped the US election as well as use of Cyber Offence and Defence on the battlefield. Attendees were also given real insight into how Local and Central Government were committed to supporting Cyber and Tech SMEs in the local Cheltenham area.
