Following several high profile cyber attacks that have affected businesses, charities, and government services alike, CST facilitated a one-day cyber security conference for the Chief Executives of the UK Jewish community in London. Over 40 people attended the event that took place at JW3 in North London.

CST hosts annual Metropolitan Police Lunch to recognise the importance of CST’s relationship with the Police
5 Jul 2017 by CST
CST hosted its annual Metropolitan Police lunch on 23 June, with keynote speaker, Commissioner Cressida Dick. This annual event has for twenty consecutive years been held in the senior officers' dining room at Scotland Yard, a unique privilege for CST and our supporters. However, the Metropolitan Police have just moved to a new headquarters which does not have an equivalent facility. Therefore we held this year's lunch at a nearby hotel and we were pleased to welcome a record number of attendees. CST’s close working relationship with the Police is a vital part of our work to protect our community in these uncertain times and we were delighted to host Commissioner Dick during such a difficult period for the Police in London following several terrorist attacks in recent months.
