University of Gloucestershire to host cyber event with Jonathon Ellwood

The industry expert has been named as one of the panellists at the upcoming convention

Jonathan Ellwood, chief knowledge officer at the IASME Consortium, is among the panellists at the upcoming C11 Cyber Tech Symposium hosted by University of Gloucestershire.

The symposium, which will be held at the University’s C11 Cyber Security and Digital Innovation Centre, will provide visitors with access to key insights about the protection of the UK’s national infrastructure from cyberattacks.

The event will also look at the action required to bring more people from all backgrounds into the growing industry.

Keynote speakers will include leading specialists from the National Cyber Security Centre, IBM’s executive security advisor, Dr Saritha Arunkumar, and the director of the Institute of Coding at Bath University, Professor Rachid Hourizi.

Following a career of over 20 years as an engineer in the aerospace industry, Jonathan moved into a career working in cybersecurity with the IASME Consortium and now focuses on cyber knowledge management.

IASME work alongside a network of more than 280 certification bodies across the UK and crown dependencies to help organisations of all sizes in both cybersecurity and counter fraud.

At the 2022 C11 Cyber Tech Symposium, Jonathan will appear on a panel entitled ‘Providing the Cyber Education of Tomorrow, Today.’

Jonathan, a visiting fellow at the university, said: “It has become critically clear that in order to maintain high levels of cyber security skills we must expand the selection process and seek to include people from a wide range of backgrounds, cultures; all kinds of diversity including neurodiversity.”

“We do this by removing barriers to inclusion. This diversity breeds a richness of thinking and capability the cyber industry of today and tomorrow needs to meet demand and complexity.”

The C11 Cyber Tech Symposium 2022 will be held at the C11 Cyber and Digital Innovation Centre at Berkeley Green on 7 July between 8.30am and 4.30pm. Registration is free but places are limited and must be booked in advance.
