Basil’s Cyber Marathon: 27-28 February

Basil is The Cyber Academy Manager, at the School of Computing, Engineering & Built Environment (SCEBE) at Edinburgh Napier University. He is also an forensic scientist, with more than 14 years of experience as an Expert Witness in digital forensics and digital evidence.

The Cyber Marathon is the culmination of years of public engagement aiming to inform the public, businesses, charities and governments on all issues related to online threats, crime and risks.

This engagement was developed to include other aspects of cyber, including industry trends, predictions and information on how different sectors deal and cope (or do not cope, for that matter) with Cyber challenges.

Most people perceive everything that has to do with online threats as a “technical” issue, for “those who understand computers“, whereas the truth is that it is more about people, behaviours and states of mind.

This goes for all sectors of our society, from teenagers and pensioners to businesses and charities.

The Cyber Marathon has a plethora of special guests, all experts and specialists in their domains, providing a more comprehensive approach to Cyber Scotland Week, than ever before.
