7th World Cyber Security Technology Research Summit

Running on Tuesday 9th and Wednesday 10th May, Belfast 2017 will be CSIT's 7th World Cyber Security Technology Research Summit. Part of the Summit's uniqueness is its bringing together the international research community alongside industry leaders, government policy makers, start-ups and SME's from around the world.

The Belfast 2017 theme is "Security for a Future Digital Society".

For researchers and technologists, the event will focus on planning today for the cyber security challenges of tomorrow. In terms of innovation, this event represents an opportunity to learn from, and contribute to, the growth of new cyber security companies with global ambitions.

There are no registration fees or sponsorship opportunities. Notwithstanding, this is an invite only event. In a break with tradition we have moved the 2017 Summit from its usual St Patrick’s week slot to 9-10th May to coincide with the OWASP AppSec EU Conference, which CSIT has helped attract to Belfast.
