Cyber Myths, Legends and Folktales – Demystifying the Fear Uncertainty and Doubt around Cyberspace and its Security
About time we sat down and laid down solid foundations in cyber security and agree, as a collective of cyber professionals, on what works and what does not work in Cybersecurity and how we can protect, detect and most importantly recover from cyber attacks.

No, it’s not going to be easy, but we need to begin somewhere and getting the basics right must surely be the most important undertaking.

With this Special Interest Group, we are bringing together cyber professionals to share their experience and insights to collectively create and define practical and pragmatic guidance and shared knowledge. Together, we will begin by defining the key ingredients of a cyber security strategy and strive to create usable templates for all the group members.

The group members will also decide and determine future topics for ongoing CMA & SIGS roundtable events

You are invited to come, contribute and share your experience in this Special Interest Group. But be aware; it’s not only to consume; we want an interactive two way communication and need as well your active participation to make this platform successful for all!

We make sure there’s always a technical advisor on site who can answer your questions from an architectural perspective and can help to design the right solutions.
