Digital Catapult hybrid event focuses on future of cybersecurity


Digital Catapult is holding a hybrid event focusing on the future of cybersecurity – ‘Is the future for secure computer systems open source?’ – to be held on the 29 of June 2022 from 5-8pm BST at 101 Euston Road, London.

As a continuation of the UKRI’s Digital Security by Design (DSbD) Roadshow series, this latest event invites software and hardware engineers, tech team leads and CTOs to learn about the future of the industry from leaders in open source.

Hosted by renowned cybersecurity journalist and author, Geoff White, the event will begin with a keynote address by Bruce Perens, co-founder of the open source initiative, before proceeding to a panel discussion and audience Q&A. Perens will be joined by Amanda Brock – CEO of OpenUK, the UK body for Open Technology, and other research and industry leaders to be announced.

The event will feature presentations jam-packed with industry insights and future-gazing predictions. Speakers will explore how tech companies are already embracing open source; the current as well as future state of open source; and the case for creating a legal imperative for manufacturers to make the code of critical systems publicly available.
