Urbano networking breakfasts give company directors, business owners, entrepreneurs, corporates, professionals and creatives across a range of sectors a chance to make connections, build associations, and learn from some of the UK's most informed and successful entrepreneurs, business people and cross-sector specialists.

Urbano speaker breakfasts are stripped down conferences, featuring great speakers, allowing attendees to discuss the issues featured in the guest presentation and plenty of opportunity to network with the speaker and the other attendees from all sizes and types of companies, from PLCs to SMEs.

In this event, our special guest speaker, Edward Lucas, will look at the challenges all business, but especially those in finance, technology and others who handle client data, face from cybercrime and security.


A big thank you to EQ Investors for their Hospitality

About our speaker Edward Lucas

neilmaidenEdward Lucas is a senior editor at The Economist, the world’s foremost newsweekly. His expertise includes energy, cyber-security, espionage, Russian foreign and security policy and the politics and economics of Eastern Europe.

Edward is an experienced broadcaster and lectures at Harvard, Oxford, Cambridge and other leading universities. He is a regular contributor to the BBC’s Today and Newsnight programmes, CNN and Sky News. He is regularly cited by Foreign Policy magazine as one of the top 100 Twitterati.

Edward will be looking at the key themes he has explored in his new book Cyberphobia.

He expands on his thesis that the birth and development of the internet has created the potential for anonymity which means neither privacy nor secrecy are really possible for law-abiding corporations or citizens. Businesses, governments and national security organisations are constantly at risk and with our ever increasing dependence on the internet and smart-phone technology this threat is unlikely to diminish.
