ADS Scotland - Demystifying Cyber Security

POSTPONED - we will announce a new date in due course.

Thursday 02 April
Book your place

ADS Scotland is delighted to partner with Waterstons Business & IT Services to offer companies the opportunity to learn and discuss the increased risk and opportunity that arises from Digital Manufacturing, supply chain considerations and understanding how many Public, Private and 3rd sector tenders are now mandating certain compliance requirements for any prospective bidders - particularly in defence and public sector.

The industries of manufacturing and cyber security have historically been at odds, but as we transition into an unavoidably digital future, the two go hand in hand.

Data analytics, IR4 technologies and automation present manufacturers with a great opportunity to improve performance and maximise revenues, however the digital technologies at the heart of these concepts present a double edged sword, increasing the risk of disruption by cyber-attack or data breach. Particularly in the manufacturing sector, which has traditionally been saved from data breaches by a lack of said data.

As data is collected, transferred, stored, analysed and communicated across the business and supply chain more frequently, manufacturers have to think differently about how they protect their sensitive data while keeping an eye on the future for emerging risks and opportunities.


Craig Archdeacon, Senior Information Security Consultant, Waterstons Kieran Fowler, Senior Information Security Consultant, Waterstons (formally Metropolitan Police Cyber Crime Unit)

Joining us on the day and sharing the knowledge will also be key companies in the sectors: Raytheon UK and Wincanton together with Scottish Business Resilience Centre providing Cyber Essentials Overview and advice on business resilience.


Jamie Salvage, Head of IT and Risk, Wincanton Danny O'Neill, Raytheon UK TBC, Scottish Business Resilience Centre


The event will also include private one-to-one sessions with members of the Waterstons team, Interactive cyber exercise and Cyber Hacking Demos.
