The European Information Security Summit 2015
IT Security IS the single most IMPORTANT function within a business today
As an IT leader, do you feel that Information Security is sometimes overlooked? Are you in complete control over who exactly has access to your data? Will biometric technology make life easier for criminals? Can your security wall be breached by hackers? To what extent does physical location of data have an effect on privacy law and its sanctuary?
These have been some of the key issues that business leaders and senior professionals in IT security have told us are the main challenges to the future success of their business.
Why choose to attend: our mission
Despite the recent high profile news stories surrounding data and information privacy – WikiLeaks, Anonymous, the Stanford University hack, Stuxnet, Sony’s PlayStation Network, the list goes on – Information Security continues to take a back seat when it comes to IT expenditure. Recent reports suggest that the cost of security breaches of large organisations in the UK has tripled over the past year, a trend which shows no signs of slowing down. So what must be done to protect your data?
Generating great new ideas as the key to success: a new agenda
We are designing an interactive, two-day agenda so you can join the conversation too, add your thoughts, tease out an idea, test a concept. Our agenda will be interactive, dynamic and will set out to foster the kind of deep understanding and empathy that leads to true innovation.
Last February, nearly 200 Information Security experts and CIOs gathered at The British Museum in London for two days of stimulating conversations, thought-provoking presentations and interactive roundtable discussions. Here’s what they had to say:
“Overall excellent summit and found it very useful.”
Assistant Director ICT, Richmond Fellowship
“Beneficial from networking point of view and also very informative.”
Group Security Director, Shop Direct Group
“Very interesting, very helpful.”
Group Network Manager, Havas Media
“Summit has been both informative and thought provoking.”
Information Security Manager, Vertex Financial Services
“Relevant to current scenarios and beneficial experiences I can take back to the office.”
Technical Security Officer, Hertfordshire County Council
“Beneficial presentations and panel sessions.”
Director, Information Risk Management & Privacy, Air Products
“Good – will recommend.”
Head, Global Security Competence Centre, DSM
This is an exclusive event for senior executives of organisations for whom security is a priority. As well as leading information security executives, it will be highly relevant to business leaders, such as IT Directors, heads of IT governance and compliance, intellectual property, technology, online and communication leaders. It will also have a focus on change management.
The debate will be rigorous, the information invaluable, and the opportunities for networking unparalleled.
