The next Vital Topics webinar takes an in-depth look at how industry and academia are working increasingly closely to tackle the huge challenges – technical, economic, and social - around cyber security.

Such challenges are rapidly evolving for businesses across all sectors, not least because of the rapid acceleration of online services across a vast swathe of sectors in the wake of the pandemic. During our debate we will bring together leading figures from industry, government and academia to discuss these issues, and also look at the relationship between cyber security and productivity.
