AWTG attended GOVSEC Government IT Security Conference 2024

AWTG proudly participated in the recently concluded GOVSEC Government IT Security Conference, held on 23rd of May at the Victoria Park Plaza in London. AWTG’s Bid Architect, Rod MacFadyen marked AWTG’s presence at the conference.

The conference showcased the latest in government and public sector infosec and cybersecurity solutions, underscoring its status as a crucial platform for knowledge sharing and network expansion. GOVSEC has built a reputation for connecting the enterprise with business by bringing together the leading experts and solution providers in government and public sector infosec and cybersecurity. This year’s conference was no exception, with a focus on addressing the evolving landscape of threats and challenges faced by organisations.

The event delved into a wide array of crucial topics including the zero-trust approach, user account management best practices, the control of user privilege levels, data protection, and context-based security, among others. Participants had the opportunity to explore issues such as incident detection, containment and response, understanding and sizing risks, the huge diversity of attacks facing organisations today, and the relevance and application of AI to enhance security measures. Discussions also covered the importance of incorporating security by design and architectures for hardware-level security. With such a comprehensive agenda, GOVSEC 2024 offered invaluable insights and solutions to participants, underscoring its significance in fostering safer government and public sector digital environments.

GOVSEC gave me  a new appreciation of the scale and range of IT security considerations which will surely inform my own approach to work and personal IT.”
