Global Cybersecurity Experts Head to the North East

Cisco, Meraki, Zerto, Veeam, Axis and Milestone are coming to the region!

Some of the world’s leading cybersecurity and technology experts are set to arrive on the banks of the River Tyne for what is set to be the North East’s ultimate cybersecurity event.

With headline sponsorship from Cisco and ourselves, the event will take place on Wednesday, March 11th, where over 150+ business leaders, IT and cybersecurity professionals will rub shoulders and be inspired at the famous Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead.



The ‘Cybersecurity Summit: North East’ is the first of its kind in the region and has already attracted sponsors and speakers from some of the world’s leading cybersecurity and IT companies, with Cisco, Axis, Zerto and Veeam to name a few, already signed up.

The events platinum sponsors, Advantex and technology conglomerate, Cisco are proud to bring such an event to the region, with our very own Sales & Marketing Director, Steve O’Connell adding:

“To bring companies like Cisco, Zerto, Axis and Veeam to the North East is huge!

Whilst the North East is booming with technology and talent, it’s often neglected with things like events, usually, they’re overseas or the closest being in places like London, Manchester or Edinburgh, so to have something of this scale in the region is something we’re extremely proud of.

We’ve had a fantastic response from the public so far, tickets are flying off the shelf, so we urge anyone wishing to go to sign up as soon as possible!”

The March event will see technology and security experts discuss the current cybersecurity landscape, highlighting the threats, what’s at risk, and more importantly, how to prevent the imminent threat of an attack.

Farana Cheema, Cybersecurity Channel & Distribution AM UKI at Cisco added:

“With a presence in four corners of the globe, having the opportunity of sharing insights and showcasing the technology of Cisco to the North East is fantastic, something we’re very excited about and can’t wait for March 11th.”

Attendees will leave the summit with notepads full of ideas they can action as soon as they get back to the office, not to mention brag to their co-workers they’ve attended the cybersecurity event of the year, and if endless inspiration isn’t enough, attendees will get the opportunity to network and talk all things cyber with some of the brightest and most talented people in the region – there’s even complimentary food and drinks across the day.
