One giant leap for cyber research
Bridging the gap between academia and industry is important. And so is the promotion of scientific understanding in the community. Understanding and applying scientific research can have a significant impact on organisational practices.
That’s why the IMPACT2020 is about facilitating discussion and collaboration between academia and industry. And it’s about the latest academic research on the human aspect of cyber security. World leading-academic experts will discuss the latest research implications for policy and practice.
We believe in knowledge transfer between academic research and organisations. If you do too, this conference is the right venue for you.
IMPACT2020 is for anyone who’s keen to understand the social and behavioural aspects of cyber security. Awareness professionals, policy makers and businesses – join us!
