Director of City University London's Centre for Cyber Security Sciences, Professor David Stupples, will be a featured speaker at the FT Adviser seminar on cyber fraud, which takes place at the Financial Times on 8 February.

nullThe seminar comes in the wake of a marked increase in cyber attacks on businesses and the financial services sector.

Speaking recently to the FT Adviser, Professor Stupples said UK businesses need to be better prepared to deal with threats to their computer systems such as espionage and sabotage superworms: "The big thing is that the business world and commerce has not geared itself up to this type of worm and they are still trying to fight the hacker with firewalls.

These superworms are starting to outmanoeuvre the traditional safety walls."
