Baroness Neville-Jones, the British Prime Minister’s Special Representative on Cyber-Security, will speak at SDL 2012.

One of the most senior figures in the British security establishment and the leader of the UK Government’s fight against online threats to business will be a keynote speaker at this year’s ‘Security and Defence Learning.’ Baroness Neville-Jones is the Prime Minister’s Special Representative to Business on Cyber Security. A former Minister of State for Security and Counter-Terrorism, she also served as Chairman of the Joint Intelligence Committee.

She will join other security and training experts in the opening session of SDL for a discussion about new threats to information and data security. The discussion is likely to focus on training and learning strategies to enable companies and organisations to prepare effectively, so that they can overcome the new challenges that confront them. It will discuss a range of important information security issues, such as data outsourcing, cloud computing and encryption.

Other speakers in the session will include Julia Schaub of Germany’s Ministry for Security and Information Technology (BSI) and Marcus Klische, BlackBerry’s Security Advisor. They will discuss a range of important information security issues, such as data outsourcing, cloud computing and encryption.
