Discover how to stay safe online – free public event

Find out how best to protect yourself online – and meet top experts who are making the internet safer – at a free public event in Leamington Spa this month, hosted by the University of Warwick.

The ‘Cyber Security Ideas Café’ will bring people of all ages and backgrounds together to eat, drink, and discuss their concerns or ideas about cyber security – all in a relaxed, friendly environment.


World-renowned cyber security experts, who regularly appear on outlets like BBC News and CNN, will give short presentations about how their research – conducted at Warwick – is making us all safer on the internet.

They will be on hand with answers to your burning questions about how best to stay protected in cyberspace, and how alert we should be about online attacks.

Presentations will include:

  • Health Technology: risks associated to Networked Health Equipment - led by Professor Tom Sorell
  • Opportunities and Challenges of Measuring Human Behaviour using Online Data - led by Dr Federico Botta
  • Use of Social Media to find Living Donors - led by Greg Moorlock, Senior Teaching Fellow

Professor Tom Sorrell commented:

“Cyber security affects both individual internet users and public and private sector institutions. This is an opportunity to extend the conversation on the central issues to a wider group.

“Everyone with interests in cyber is invited to attend!”

Cyber Security is an ongoing concern and challenge that academics and organisations around the world are working in partnership to tackle.

The Ideas Café is an early evening, interactive event which brings together members of the public and Warwick academics to discuss and engage in the exciting research that they are undertaking. The evening is informal and designed to promote different ways of thinking about research and its practical applications in real life situations.

The ‘Cyber Security Ideas Café’ will take place at The Dormer Place Conference Centre, Leamington Spa, CV32 5AA (next to St Peter Apostle Catholic Church) on Tuesday 11 July, 6pm-8:45pm.

Please come from 6pm and enjoy a free buffet and refreshments, before the talks begin at 6:30pm
