Remember the year 2000 problem?  Cyber byber.  Cyber money is like insurance, paying to protect something that in all likelihood is never going to be a problem.  Is the cyber industry an elaborate spin that spends money willy-nilly on technology without a real need to defend the spend?  Are there better ways to achieve the outcome?  Come and hear views of our expert panel, and you make up your own mind!

Tickets to this event are expected to sell quickly.
