Kelvin Jones, Managing Director, Accelero Digital: “Accelero Digital is delighted to be involved with the conference and exhibition for a second year running. Last year’s successful first event drew delegates from a number of different organisations and backgrounds, with people from small to medium enterprises, academics and students attending.
“This year’s event is larger with a greater variety of delegates. We strongly believe that any event that increases awareness and provides education of issues relating to cyber security is worthwhile. This event, with its fairly unique cross section of delegates, provides a rare opportunity for specialists such as Accelero Digital to meet potential customer, academic collaborators and even prospective employees on one day.”
Jay Doyle, User Engagement Officer, CHERISH Digital Economy Hub: “The take up for the conference has been fantastic. The importance of cyber safety and security in modern life influence how we behave online in any personal or professional capacity. The interest in the event from such a diverse audience demonstrates the resonance of this wide-ranging topic.
CHERISH-DE is a five-year Swansea University initiative that explores how to deliver digital innovations that help people relate and respond to our rapidly expanding technological world, with a focus on health and social care, resource-constrained communities, and cyber safety and security.
