On the morning of December 9, The Times and Sunday Times Tech Summit will bring together CIOs, CTOs and senior innovation executives –the strategic business leaders from across the UK, setting the pace and direction of their companies for an agenda-setting summit. The morning combines short keynotes, interviews and panel debates led by our business and technology journalists, plus the chance to connect with your peers.

Event Time: 08:30am - 12:30pm (GMT)

Our core topics include:

Unleashing data freedom: a new regime

With the imminent reform of data protection laws, we will explore what this ‘common sense’ approach will mean. How has data collection evolved and how have attitudes changed to data harvesting?

Mitigating risk: Cyber security challenges ahead

Accelerating digital innovation brings complexity and risk, two conditions that cyber criminals will try to exploit. How do you keep on top of the evolving threat landscape and create a culture of cyber resilience?

Mind the gap: addressing the skills shortage

Tech jobs now represent over 10% of all available vacancies in the UK. With tech playing an increasingly important role in the economic health of the UK, how are we addressing the skills shortage? How are we helping create an inclusive jobs recovery.
