What to look out for at Infosecurity Europe 2019

With Infosecurity just around the corner, we at éclat Marketing thought we’d share with you our top five (and a half) things to lookout for at this year’s event.

  1. Kate Adie will be delivering the opening keynote

Veteran war correspondent Kate Adie will open InfoSec with a talk on how she managed security and risk while reporting from some of the world’s most dangerous conflict zones. “Perspectives from the frontline” will also explore how these experiences can inspire organisations to take a different perspective on resilience and security.

  1. Women in Cybersecurity networking event

For the third year in a row, Infosecurity will be holding its Women in Cybersecurity networking event, which will celebrate the achievements of women in the sector, discuss career opportunities and debate how inclusive and diverse the industry is.

The keynote speaker for the event will be Professor Sue Black, who was recently named as one of Europe’s top 50 women in technology. Professor of computer science and technology evangelist at Durham University, Sue has spent the last two decades campaigning for greater recognition and opportunities for women in computing.

  1. Inspiring the future game changers in cybersecurity

With the shortage of talent and skills coming into the industry beginning to take a hold it is great to see that Infosecurity is trying to address this with its new event FutureSec. This is a programme of sessions that will be looking at how individuals can start and develop their cyber careers, and how cyber start-ups can grow their business.

The sessions for individuals will provide advice and guidance to anyone looking to take their first role in cybersecurity or wishing to progress their career in the industry.

For those entrepreneurs looking to start or expand their own cyber security business there will be practical tips about writing a business plan, how to raise capital and how to successfully market a business or product.

  1. Fun and games

Who says Infosecurity is all work and no play? Anyone fancying have a bit of fun or wanting a bit of a challenge should head over to Infosecurity Geek Street. Organisers have promised a very secretive Escape Room, which is being kept under wraps, and a Capture the Flag competition.

Capture the Flag will challenge the best of the best and will cover all kinds of topics. Players can either compete individually or as part of team.

  1. éclat client speakers

Several of éclat’s clients will be talking at InfoSec, sharing with visitors their insight, expertise and experience. These include James Linton and Seth Knox of Agari, who will be running a security workshop teaching attendees about what they can learn from email pranksters about business email security.

Representing Duo, Richarard Archdeacon and Dave Lewis will separately be discussing Zero Trust, including how it works in the world of identity and how to implement such a solution.

Tom Van de Wiele from F-Secure will be showing delegates what to recommendations to prioritise following a security breach test.

Ever fancied hacking into a power station? Thycotic’s Joseph Carson will take you through what needs to be done, so that you know how to reduce your risk from a similar attack.

In his Technology Showcase talk Matt Lock of Varonis will be looking at why perimeter security is no longer practical for securing data and what businesses should be doing instead.

Also from Varonis, Snir Ben Shimol will be giving a Tech Talk on how to identify and prevent evasive threats using your organisation’s data, which will focus on a real-world case study.

5.5. Sore feet and blisters – lots!

With more than 400 exhibitors to get around there are likely to be a fair few people with sore and tired feet. Make sure you wear some comfy shoes.

If you’re exhibiting or walking the floor at this year’s show, we’d love to meet you there. Drop us a line at [email protected]. The coffee’s on us.
