December 4th 2019 – Positivity in Cyber Security!

Our Speakers

Rory Innes, Founder & CEO, The Cyber Helpline

Rory has spent his whole career in cybersecurity and has worked for leading global cybersecurity companies in a range of senior management positions. He was responsible for building one of the first cybersecurity practices dedicated to helping individuals & families, rather than businesses. During this time he and his team of experts worked for a number of rich and famous individuals globally to respond to cybersecurity incidents and help put good security in place. However, Rory saw the need to bring expert advice to everyone and The Cyber Helpline was born. The Cyber Helpline wants a UK where the cyber-criminals don’t win and is on a mission to make sure everyone has free access to expert help when they need it.

Roy will be talking about ‘The Cyber Helpline: Using humans & robots to help victims of cybercrime. ‘
