John McAfee European Cyber Threat Summit






cyber security conference and exhibition

Cyber Security is a serious issue for all businesses and individuals.

Now in its the eight year, the Cyber Threat Summit has become Europe’s leading cyber risk exhibition and conference. This year our event will take place in The Helix, DCU Campus, Dublin on the 24th October 2018. Developing and enhancing each year, 2018 will embrace the theme of “European Cyber Summit” an opportunity to focus on Euro cyber issues such as BREXIT, GDPR and the NIS Directive. Our annual Cyber Threat Summit has been a great success for the past 7 years and now you can become part of the success story.

European Cyber Threat Summit


For 7 Years, the Cyber Threat Summit has been the Cyber Security Conference of Choice for Business Leaders.

Hosted by the the ICTTF International Cyber Threat Task Force, this event was conceived and designed to help fight against the “Bad Guys”.

The mantra of the task force is “It Takes a Network to Defeat a Network”. We believe the Cyber Threat Summit is the best way to share knowledge, network and leverage the expertise of the worlds most experienced experts and solution providers.

This year we have 3 distinct streams, running in parallel.

The Strategic Stream is probably best suited to senior executives and those cyber leaders that want to understand how to strategically deal with issues related to cyber. These include technical challenges and also issues such as supply chain dependency, legal, mergers and acquisitions and a complete range of issues that align with the business. The Operational Stream is aimed at those that want to understand “How To”.  Delegates will hear real life case studies of how organisations and solution providers dealt with particular issues such as DLP, Incident Management, Cloud Transition, Implementing ISO27001 and many more topics. The Technical Stream is very popular. Here delegates get a chance to see the latest innovations in dealing with cyber threats, they can interact and deal directly with the experts and experience solutions in action.
