The sessions will outline resources available to organisations which they can utilise in-house, as well as presenting an opportunity to network with like-minded people within the industry.

CyberScotland Week brings together experts for a packed programme of events designed to build cyber resilience across the country. The week-long programme which takes place between the 26th of February to the 3rd of March will focus on three key themes of collaboration, diversity and resilience.
