International Cyber Expo to launch in December
A dedicated global event uniting the worlds of cyber and physical security is to launch this December, alongside the International Security Expo.
Taking place on 2-3 December, International Cyber Expo 2020 (ICE2020) will provide a brand new game changing event platform for the cyber community.
In last year’s Nineteen Group’s International Security Expo, 37 per cent of the audience stated that ‘cyber’ was one of their top priorities. Whilst the show already had a ‘Cyber Security Zone’, the growth in interest in the field of cyber, coupled with the huge growth experienced by the industry as a whole, has given the show organisers the confidence and exhibitor backing to give this community its own dedicated global event.
Tristan Norman, Group Exhibition Director at Nineteen Group, said: “There is no hiding from the increasing prominence of cyber security within the traditional physical security realm. With over 5,342 visitors attending ISE to seek out suppliers and education specifically within cyber security. There is a large correlation between our audience who are interested in cyber and who also have responsibility for Critical National Infrastructure (CNI). This is a perfect example of where the frequency of traditional physical security threats, is now superseded by the frequency of cyber attacks from serious organised crime and terrorism on CNI. A fully blended and comprehensive security approach encompassing cyber and physical security is now paramount.”
