  • Emerging challenges: As our lives become increasingly connected, what are the emerging cyber risks faced by society and industry? And how ready is our innovation ecosystem to meet those challenges?
  • The new risk landscape: How has the global pandemic changed the cyber risk landscape for individuals, businesses and governments? And how is rapid digital transformation creating new challenges and opportunities, or accelerating existing trends?
  • Growing UK cyber: How can we make sure the UK’s cyber ecosystem continues to grow and mature? How can we make sure early-stage startups get the funding and support they need, commercialise academic research, connect cyber hubs across the UK and produce more scaleups with a global reach?  
  • Education and skills: Our cyber sector has the potential to create jobs and fuel our country’s economic recovery, but how can we create a steady pipeline of skilled talent? And how can we make sure our sector is diverse and inclusive to people from a range of backgrounds?
  • Going global: Digital threats are borderless, so how can we encourage secure collaboration and make sure the UK continues to be a prominent global cyber hub? As the world becomes less enamoured with globalisation, how can we make sure cross-border cyber collaboration bucks this trend?
