Computing Insight UK 2018
20 Aug 2018





Cyber security is a rapidly growing topic in technology, routinely hitting headlines. The high performance computing (HPC) and high performance data analytics (HPDA) communities are increasingly affected as the focus on security at the facility level widens to include the applications that run on them. There is a myriad of competing concerns, and this is becoming a key topic of debate for researchers, software engineers and hardware vendors alike.

Attention to these concerns is increasing in urgency as organisations integrate HPC and HPDA practices into their core business, especially in highly regulated as sectors such as finance and healthcare. Is cyber security as simple as a bolt-on solution, or should it be integral to how we manage information, secure systems against vulnerabilities, encrypt and protect data?

We’ll explore all these themes and more with industry speakers and a panel session in the Cyber Security in HPC breakout session hosted by the Hartree Centre at Computing Insight UK 2017.
