This page will contain the main forthcoming events for The Cyber Academy. Over the next few months we will announce a range of workshops, seminars and a major symposium.

The Cyber Academy Presents … Brave New World or Big Brother?

bnwThursday, 25 June 2021 from 18:00 to 19:30
The presentation will examine the threats and opportunities within the Cyber Age. At its core is the debate around between the rights of privacy against the rights of society to detect threats, and in the growth of the devices which connect to the Internet.

It will use a wide range of fun and interesting demonstrations to showcase the opportunities and threats within this Age, including parallels of modern day surveillance and the usage of intelligent devices, from visionary writers such as George Orwell, Ray Bradbury, and others, along with movies such as 2001: Space Oddity.

Included in the demonstrations will be an examination of the risks around the embedded systems which connect to the Internet, including for home control systems, IP cameras, health care sensors, intelligent car networks, and even children’s toys.

Software Defined Architectures and Networks

This Symposium focuses on the next generation of network infrastructures, where devices, networks and data elements are defined as software entities. It is presented as partnership between The Cyber Academy and Hutchinson Networks.

A key focus of the event is to analyse how a range of organisations can be transformed using SDN (Software Defined Networks), including for improved business integration, performance, security and failover, especially to highlight current practice and the future of information infastructures.
