CYBER Breakfast: 24 | 10 | 2023

The NCC will be organising a CYBER Breakfast event to follow on the success of this series of events. This event will be held on Tuesday, 24th October 2023, between 08:00 and 12:00 at the AX The Palace Hotel in Sliema, and shall take the form of a business breakfast.

During the first part of the morning, Prof. André Xuereb will be taking us through ‘A New Kind of Cybersecurity’.

Quantum computers are known to be able to break public key cryptography. Even worse, data harvested today can be stored and decrypted later; any entity that sends high volumes of sensitive data could very well be leaking information as we speak. For this reason, the European Commission has launched a set of projects aimed at creating a Europe-wide quantum communication infrastructure. Here in Malta, the project PRISM (“Physical Security for Public Infrastructure in Malta”) is building a country-wide test-bed quantum network over the next two years. Hence, the session will be tackling the quantum threat; why we must act now, how to counteract these threats, and what is being done to ensure that Malta is at the forefront of these activities.

This will be followed by ‘No Longer Optional’ – a presentation delivered by Mr. Finian Massa.

As today’s landscape shifts to a security imperative, organizations need to rethink their approach. Join us to discover how program management, prioritization, and strategies that alleviate operational burdens can help local businesses without compromising on the security they require.
