    The presentation by Senan Moloney from Barclays started with a demonstration of how seriously the bank takes security - he was unable to connect his laptop to the hotel's system. However the slides were not needed as Senan certainly gave a compelling talk on the variety of risks posed by cyber crime.

    The key message I took away from the session was that a company's best defence against this threat is education and awareness - across all levels of the business.
