We are currently exploring dates in the autumn.

Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. 

Discussion between Paul Chichester (National Cyber Security Centre) and H.E. Tiina Intelmann (Estonian Ambassador to the UK) at the National Cyber Security Academy, University of South Wales, Newport City campus. Register here to receive further details.

As we use the internet more and more in our daily lives, cyber security plays a vital role in protecting our online interactions.

Estonia is a world leader in cyber security, and is home to the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence. The Welsh government’s new international strategy highlights cyber security as a key sector to help to showcase the wide range of opportunities Wales has to offer as a leading hub in the fast-growing cyber security sector.

Reflecting  on the experiences of both nations, Paul Chichester of the National Cyber Security Centre, and H.E. Tiina Intelmann, Estonian Ambassador to the UK, will consider the challenges and opportunities in the world of cyber security.

Paul Chichester is Director Operations of the National Cyber Security Centre. He has worked in the UK government intelligence and security community for over 25 years in a variety of offensive and defensive cyber roles. Paul was awarded the MBE in 2005 for his ground-breaking work in cyber.
