Speakers include Ali Shah, Head of Technology Policy, ICO; Mark Parr, CISO, KPMG; and Matt Bottomley, Global Head of Security, Aviva.

London Tech Week takes place between 10th-14th of June, and PeepSec will host more than 25 leaders and thinkers from high-profile businesses, government, and from world-class universities. 

Speakers will share insights on how emerging technologies are shaping society and business, and the opportunities and challenges related to people and technology – from cyber security, trust, and privacy, to innovation, social impact, and ethics in the pervasive technology era.

Oz Alashe, CEO of CybSafe and the host of this year’s summit, said:

“In so many areas of life, technology delivers better outcomes and enhances our lives. Driverless cars, space tourism, and bioelectronics – to name a few – are all set to revolutionise society and our day-to-day lives. But evidently, there are challenges as well as opportunities. PeepSec deals with these issues – exploring some of the most pressing challenges and opportunities facing businesses, leaders, and society as a whole.”

Ben Brabyn, Head of Level39 said:

“It’s fantastic to be a part of PeepSec this year, and I see the summit as a real force for good. Now in its second year, PeepSec is developing a community of people interested in technology, people and security – where innovative and interesting ideas are being discussed and debated freely. There’ll certainly be a number of interesting takeaways from this year’s interviews.”
