The Scotsman is delighted to be the first official media partner to Cyber Scotland Week and as part of this exciting new relationship, we are hosting the inaugural “State of the Cyber Nation” Debate.

We have brought together some of the leading authorities from across industry, government and academia to share their perspectives on Scotland’s cyber resilience journey over the past five years, as well as identifying their key priorities for the future. More importantly, they’re here to answer your questions on issues ranging from emerging threats and how to improve collaboration between academia and industry, through to the potential impact of cyber-attacks on public bodies, infrastructure and business and what steps you can take to make sure your organisation is prepared.

The floor is yours and this is your chance to put your questions and views to the Cyber Nation panel in what promises to be a lively and informative debate.


Speakers include:

Ivan McKee MSP, Minister for Innovation, Trade & Public Finance, The Scottish Government
Ciara Mitchell – Head of Cyber/Cluster Manager, ScotlandIS
Jude McCorry – Chief Executive Scottish Business Resilience Centre
Dr Natalie Coull – Head of Cyber Security Division, Abertay University
David Ferbrache OBE, Chair of the National Cyber Resilience Advisory Board
