Jersey's role in combating cyber crime highlighted at international security conference

Friday 31 January 2014


The risks posed by "cyber-crime" has been highlighted at the first Cyber Tech International Exhibition and Conference by JT.

"Cyber Tech 2014" took place in Tel Aviv, Israel this week and was opened by Israel’s Prime Minister. As a Tier 1 telecoms company, JT was invited to speak at the event which brought together leading multi-national companies, start-ups, private and corporate investors with senior officials of the global cyber industry.

JT's Chief Relationship Office, Tim Ringsdore spoke about how JT is protecting its network, and what customers need to consider when protecting their business from cyber-attacks. In particular he spoke about JT’s development of the JT Lab facility, which is enabling security start-ups and other global businesses to develop innovative concepts, products and services to fight the ever changing and increasing risks of ‘cyber attacks’.

Explaining the importance of this opportunity and the benefits to Jersey, Mr Ringsdore said: “It is vital that what we are doing here in the Channel Islands is brought to the attention of key telecommunications and technology companies around the world who can benefit from the truly unique opportunity we can offer. We are therefore very grateful for the strong partnership we have developed with the California Israel Chamber of Commerce (CICC) over the last couple of years, which has provided us with the opportunity to present JT as a case study at yet another important industry event.

“The overriding message that came out of the event was that cyber-crime is recognised as the ‘new war’ on governments and businesses and the need for greater collaboration between companies and countries is increasing. Businesses must educate staff, including board members, by creating and promoting security policies which challenge the rising threat against mobile security. In particular the Bring your own device (BYOD) trend within the tablet and smartphone market was identified as creating even further risks".
