Which will have a significant impact on effectiveness and efficiency.</p> <p>And as the UK prepares for the future of a fifth generation network, we wonder just how much 5G could transform the emergency services&rsquo; ability to keep us safe and secure by providing them with real-time intelligence and unparalleled situational awareness.</p> <p>This event will examine&nbsp;the benefits that a fifth generation network that could deliver to the emergency services. We will explore the impact of 5G on major incidents response, the future of the control room, monitoring and prevention, and mobile working. The panel will explore how better connectivity and capacity could allow the services to take advantage of the latest technologies, and&nbsp;will&nbsp;try to identify what steps need to be taken by comms infrastructure providers, tech suppliers to blue lights services, and the Government, to make 5G enabled emergency services a reality.</p> <p>Speakers will include representatives from:<br> &bull; Samsung<br> &bull; EE<br> &bull; Capita<br>&bull;&nbsp;Home Office</p>Contact: <a href="mailto:henry.rex@techuk.org">henry.rex@techuk.org</a>Contact: <a href="mailto:sophie.weston@techuk.org">sophie.weston@techuk.org</a>Contact: <a href="mailto:sophie.warren@linklaters.com">sophie.warren@linklaters.com</a> http://www.techuk.org/events/meeting/item/13325-making-the-most-of-your-techuk-membership Making the most of your techUK membership http://www.techuk.org/events/meeting/item/13325-making-the-most-of-your-techuk-membership Thu, 14 Jun 2018 09:04:11 +0100 CRM Sync noreply@techuk.org Would you like to learn more about the many benefits and services that you can access through your company’s techUK membership?

The Crime Survey of England and Wales 2017 indicated that there were 3.4 million incidents of fraud last year. And over half of all fraud is online. This NCA Strategic Assessment of Serious &amp; Organised Crime 2018, published in May, emphasised the importance of fraud, and highlighted that &ldquo;our understanding of fraud in the UK is hampered by under-reporting; less than 20% of incidents are reported to the police.&rdquo; The challenge facing the police and other bodies charged with investigation is how to remain relevant in this arena as the proportion of non-reported incidents continues to grow.<br><br>techUK is conscious of the challenges facing law enforcement and policy makers in a world where traditional governmental models of recording and investigating crime are proving no match for surging technologies - which enable credible threats to be delivered simultaneously to multiple targets at marginal cost by almost invisible adversaries. The victims can be governments, organisations or individuals - but the criminals&rsquo; tools are largely the same.<br><br>This event challenges technology innovators and others in the market place to engage with policy makers, the police and other statutory bodies to suggest ways in which collaboration might level the playing field and redress the balance. In a round table format, an invited audience which includes member organisations from techUK will debate the challenges of fraud and online crime in environments as diverse as Government online service, sports integrity, online market places and social media: looking for cross-sector learning to inform future policy solutions.</p> <p>If you would like to find out more please contact <a href="mailto:henry.rex@techuk.org" target="_blank">Henry Rex</a>.</p>Contact: <a href="mailto:henry.rex@techuk.org">henry.rex@techuk.org</a> http://www.techuk.org/events/partner-event/item/13109-satellite-finance-network-elevator-investor-pitch Satellite Finance Network: Elevator Investor Pitch http://www.techuk.org/events/partner-event/item/13109-satellite-finance-network-elevator-investor-pitch Thu, 17 May 2018 17:49:52 +0100 CRM Sync noreply@techuk.org Satellite Finance Network <table style="width: 300px;" border="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="1" align="center"><tbody><tr><td><img style="height: 300px; width: 300px;" src="//portal.techuk.org/uploaded-images/SFN%20logo%20with%20strapline%20(3).jpg" alt=""></td> </tr></tbody></table><p>techUK is proud to be working again with the Satellite Finance Network (SFN) to run the following events:</p> <p><strong>The Elevator Pitch Training Sessions: on Tuesday 12 June 2018 at techUK 10 St Bride St, London EC4A 4AD from 10:00 to 13:00. </strong></p> <p><strong>The Elevator Investor Pitch Event: on&nbsp;Monday 30 July 2018 at techUK 10 St Bride St, London EC4A 4AD from 09:30 to 13:00.

It is vital that cloud users are equipped with the skills needed to keep pace with cloud developments and realise the full potential of investment in platform, infrastructure and software cloud services.&nbsp;</p> <p>The Cloud Skills Gap Roundtable is an opportunity to bring together members to unpick these issues. The key points to be discussed include:</p> <ol><li>What type of skills gaps are you identifying, either in employees or at an organisational-level, when thinking about the adoption of cloud technologies?</li> <li>Where do the biggest technical skills gaps lie in your current or planned use of cloud?</li> <li>What are the potential solutions and next steps required to address the cloud skills gap?</li> </ol><p>This roundtable will form the basis for our future work in this area.

In Defence, we have recently seen a renewed focus from senior leaders including VCDS and CGS on the future importance of information warfare and capability, which re-inforces that cyber skills will be increasingly important in all areas of the military. This techUK Information Superiority Council Briefing will be an opportunity to discuss the challenges facing UK defence in ensuring its workforce has sufficient cyber skills, examining the shared cross industry challenges as well as those areas where Defence has unique challenges.</em></p> <p><em>&nbsp;</em></p> <p><em>One key issue to be discussed will be how the military can best utilise civilian expertise, in the same way that 77 Brigade has pioneered using a mixture of regulars and reservists. Using innovative career pathways like this and secondee programmes are a good way of bringing skills into MOD. Upskilling current service people will also be a topic for discussion, particularly in terms of raising awareness of cyber threats and ensuring sufficient cyber hygiene is practiced throughout all functions. The MOD already has &pound;120 million set aside for recruitment in this area so another area for discussion will focus around how MOD can better market the uniquely challenging roles it has, which can&rsquo;t be found in the private sector.</em></p> <p><em>&nbsp;</em></p> <p>We are delighted that <strong>Air Cdre Tim Neal-Hopes</strong>, Head Joint User C4ISR &amp; Cyber, MOD has agreed to speak.
