Cyber Lates: Lessons from Failure

Cyber Lates

July 19, 2023 | 17:00 - 19:00

Plexal is building the UK’s most connected cyber community.

Join us for Cyber Lates: a series of meetups for technology and cyber security innovators, investors and leaders.

We’ll have welcome drinks from 5pm, then our main event lasts from 5.30-6.15pm. We’ll carry the conversation on over food and drinks after. Join us and get to know Plexal’s innovation team and community!

The F word – learning from failure in cyber

What can we learn about some of the big failures in product design, where not thinking about security from the start has caused embarrassment, led to more environmental waste and put people’s privacy at risk? Spotlighting some of the most notorious case studies is Tony Gee, Senior Consultant and Social Engineer at Pen Test Partners (with a special appearance from Cayla, the now-banned connected doll).

Then we’ll hear from cyber entrepreneurs who have failed forward and learned all the lessons.

July’s Cyber Lates follows the last day of our Cyber Runway: Launch bootcamp, so you’ll have the chance to meet our budding cyber entrepreneurs as well as investors, industry, government and startup mentors from the ecosystem. It’s one you won’t want to miss! If you’ve got any questions or accessibility requirements get in touch on
