The game is – was – afoot!

Another Infosec Europe has come and gone, so that means only one thing; it’s time for the éclat pre-Infosec party debrief!  

This year we donned our deerstalkers and cracked out our magnifying glasses at the brilliant Sherlock escape room experience The Game is Now. With a customised cybersecurity mission to complete, the evil Moriarty had us all on our toes as we investigated various different elements to the mission before escaping relatively unscathed – I can’t say much more about this for fear this blog post will self-destruct. Sorry. Wait, wrong film! You can, however, check out our team photos taken in Sherlock’s very own lounge.  

Infosec continues to be one of the biggest events in the UK cybersecurity industry calendar and this year was no exception. With more floor space and exhibitors than ever, our clients had three tough days ahead of them. The chance to network with, and compete against, some of the key press in our industry not only provided some light-hearted fun but was also invaluable in building relationships with journalists they may not have time to chat to during the show. Journalists’ schedules are so full and stretched at events like this, it’s great to get some quality facetime with them before they’re pulled from pillar to post.  

As always, we enjoyed an element of competition throughout the evening, with the overall winners being the oddly-name ‘Fire Extinguishers’. Please don’t ask how the name came to be, we’ll never tell. As Sherlock would say “There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact.”
