Fifth Annual Secure Computing Forum

Secure Computing Forum has grown to become Ireland’s must attend conference dedicated to cyber security and provides participants with a platform aimed at fostering dialogue amongst key security players.

Keynote Speaker
David Blunkett

Former UK Government Home Secretary, Writer and International Speaker

As Home Secretary at the time of 9/11, David served through the most testing times. Since leaving the front bench David has continued to inform policy-making on cyber security. 

David was the unpaid chair of the International Cyber Security Projection Alliance until 2016 and now is the honorary chair of the Cyber Essentials Direct Ltd (promoting the Cyber Highway).

Jenny Radcliffe

Aka “The People Hacker” – is a force to be reckoned with.

She can diffuse a crisis situation, talk her way into a secure building and spot a psychopath at a hundred paces. She has been called a mind reader and a ‘human lie detector’.

In reality, she is an expert in Social Engineering (the human element of security), negotiations, non-verbal communication & deception, using her skills to help clients from the security industry protect themselves from malicious social engineering attacks.
