Leading QC Dean Armstrong is to be the keynote in a special CIO dinner debate on cybersecurity and data management on Thursday June 22, 2017 in central London.
Dean Armstrong (pictured left) is one of the UK’s most experienced Queen’s Councils (QC) and in a varied career has been involved in business and fraud cases, including the famous case against former Polly Peck CEO Asil Nadir. Armstrong is also a regular legal expert for the BBC and Sky news channels on crime.
Armstrong will deliver a keynote address from inside the legal industry on the rising levels of cybercrime and data management. Horizon Business Innovation partners Sales Filter are organising this CIO and CXO roundtable debate on the 22nd of June in central London. Horizon podcast listeners and readers are invited to join us for the debate.
QC Armstrong will discuss the challenges the legal community faces in keeping up with developments in technology, a challenge it shares with CIOs in business and therefore how the legal world constantly faces issues of misuse of technology to reach commercial gain illegally. Last week’s Horizon Business Innovation podcast tackled the issue of innovation in the legal sector with CIOs Andrew Mcmanus and Stuart Whittle and lawyer Howard Rubin, you can download the podcast here.
Armstrong and peers have recently penned a book on the topic analysing data control, management and cybersecurity and how they impact civil and criminal law. The book also looks at business issues such as internal threats, data mismanagement, software that is not fit for purpose in the face of modern security threats or data needs. In the book and during the debate Armstrong will cover practical ways to deal with potential and actual cyber attack threats.
As the UK’s economic future hangs on a perilous thread as a result of the actions of the Conservative party, QC Armstrong also analyses the impact of Brexit on data management.
