Event Cyber Security

Digital technologies are being immersed into every facet of public venues and events, from ticketing systems to device-enhanced visitor experiences. This opens the door to cyber-criminals and other malicious attackers.


Significant Cyber Security Challenge

Public venues and major events present a significant cyber security challenge, not least due to the large amount of people who can be in attendance. Cyber-criminals will attempt to exploit exposed credentials, and data sources, as well as financial information. Threat actors may also target the critical infrastructure like power, plumbing, and lighting.

Sports stadium cyber defence solutions

Advanced Firewall solutions

Offering complete application and data control along with superior intrusion prevention, file analysis and bespoke CDS provided capabilities, with no loss of network performance.

Continued scanning of internal systems

Constant scanning for known weaknesses and vulnerabilities, along with regular, automated patching of servers and workstations.

Drone Detection & Mitigation

Protect your infrastructure from the growing threat of drones with A.I.M.

Secure data

Ensure all personal and private information is stored, controlled, monitored, accessed and deleted correctly. Adhering to current and new Data Protection Regulations.


Testing and exercising plays a key role in our preparation to protect your venue and events. It allows us to play out sets of scenarios which, in turn, leads to the detection and prevention of cyber-crime incidents.


We learn from experience using our in-depth knowledge and intelligence gathered from previous incidents. This allows us to predict weaknesses and protect your public venues and events. We also consider the possible sources of future hostile activity, for example wearable technology connected to visitor access, and drones in the vicinity of open-air locations.


We provide you with the full range of services required to achieve threat and vulnerability protection, attack deterrence, incident response, system resilience, and recovery.


Additional Services

CDS brings extensive experience in the development and implementation of cyber and data security solutions to protect your data and privacy.

Incident Response

Response and containment in the event of an attack, helping to identify possible entry points, identify stolen data, clean up affected systems and offer clear, concise guidance on what measures to take post-event to assist in prevention of any future compromises.

Assessments & Testing

Simply installing a cyber and privacy solution and not reviewing, monitoring or updating regularly introduces and allows an unnecessary level of risk. CDS are experts in assessing and testing systems to ensure they are working to include penetration testing, vulnerability assessments, remote monitoring and wireless network assessments.

ARM – Alert, Record, Monitor

Knowing what is happening on any network at any point in time is of paramount importance. Without continued alerting, recording and monitoring of events, network activity and system changes, how could you possibly know a breach has occurred or a security risk exists?

Privacy & GDPR

Do you know where your data is stored, where it's going and who has access to it? CDS provide protection and privacy of personal, confidential and commercially sensitive data regardless of where this is stored, be that onboard a vessel, corporate offices or mobile devices.

Counter Measures

Eavesdropping and spying are increasingly more prevalent for high profile and / or wealthy businesses or individuals. CDS thwarts unwanted cybercrime through comprehensive TSCM electronic counter-measures services including the detection of visual and listening surveillance devices and countersurveillance software for accessing computing and mobile devices.

Anti-Drone Protection

As the number of drones grows exponentially, so do the challenges. The wide reach of drone surveillance technology increases the risk of Cyber Security attack and the threat to privacy. A.I.M is the only anti-drone system that detects, guards and protects high-value assets against the new and growing threat of drones.
