Since 1990, Cityforum has been involved in public policy. Their organization is made up of a small, trustworthy, and independent group of experienced professionals who are known for their intellectual honesty, expertise, and broad relationships in the corporate, public, and non-profit sectors.
Furthermore, they collaborate with a strong network of partners and collaborators that provide depth, breadth, and subject matter experience.
Cityforum has specialized in two areas since its founding in 1990:
a) Organizing and presenting specialized events, typically of the ’round table’ variety, on a variety of economic, practical, technical, and social policy topics of interest to government agencies, businesses, and non-profit organizations.
b) doing customized research and advisory work for government agencies, corporations, and non-profit organizations to provide:
- Policy, strategy, processes, efficiency, and communications guidance and advice for the public sector.
- Independent reviews and evaluations based on our unique analytical and interviewing abilities.
- Firms pursuing public sector contracts and new business alliances might benefit from corporate advisory services.
Cityforum has maintained an interest in economic policy, banking, regulation, and trade since its first Adam Smith Bicentennial event with the Scottish Government in 1990. Defense, security, cyber, police, CNI, energy, health, social care, and privacy are just a few of the areas where we give analysis, recommendations, and platforms for critical debate of topics, including wicked ones that seem to defy solutions.
Digital Forensics Series 2022
The ADFSL Conference on Digital Forensics, Security, and Law is a one-of-a-kind and forward-thinking gathering. The Association of Digital Forensics, Security, and Law is in charge of it (ADFSL). The conference will focus on the existing and increasing importance of digital forensics in investigations and the courts, as well as its critical role in national and corporate cyber security.
Topics covered include not simply technology and evidence, but also how to educate students for employment in digital forensics. Double-blind refereed conference papers provide a place for high-quality research, discussion, and debate on the subject of digital forensics and immediately related disciplines. Individuals interested in establishing curriculum and teaching techniques, as well as performing research in the fields of digital forensics, security, and legislation, should attend the conference. Both academic and practitioner audiences will benefit from this meeting.
Cityforum Digital Forensics Summit 2023
This Digital Forensics Summit in 2023 is a continuation of the highly regarded Cityforum event that took place in 2022 and the earlier debate that took place in 2019.
The goal of the day is to determine how increased performance in digital forensics may assist in restoring the reputation of the police force and strengthen the general public’s confidence in the criminal justice system. The conference in 2023 is being held during a time of fiscal austerity, at a time when breakthroughs in technology, not the least of which are the outcome of generative artificial intelligence, will further add to the demands placed on forensic leaders and practitioners.
Structures, delivering on promises, and taking responsibility are all on the agenda. It gives special consideration to the role that the private sector has played in ensuring the continued growth and development of digital forensics. It analyzes the legal, ethical, and proportionality problems that face public sector organizations that are looking to improve their digital performance, as it has in past years.
Cityforum Cyber Security Summit: Session Two 2023
Since its inception 13 years ago, with assistance from the NSA, the Cityforum Cyber Security seminars have come to occupy a prominent position on the schedule of events in London.
This Cyber Summit’s first session, which took place around the end of the previous year, was very well received, and the closing half of the event will take place in the City of London on July 11th. The agenda has been created with significant editorial advice from the Office of Chris Inglis, who has just left the White House, from the National Security Agency, as well as from other prominent organisations on both sides of the Atlantic.
Participants on the panel will concentrate on the geopolitical, regulatory, investment, and skills pressures that are placed on the West during this time of deglobalization, multiple crises, and increasing uncertainty. The round table discussions, which will, as is customary for this event, be a significant element of the day, will concentrate on what can be done with imagination, capability, and knowledge to limit the cyber risk to our economies and societies and maximize resilience when these are attacked.
