Infosecurity Europe 2019, running at London Olympia from June 4 to 6 is home to 240-plus free to attend conference sessions, which have been accredited by leading industry associations (ISC)2 and ISACA since 2012. Visitors have access to 140-hours hours of debate and content.
The theme this year is Cybersecurity 4.0: Complexity, risk and resilience. As organisers say, as organisations become increasingly complex, we are moving into a new area of cybersecurity – one where increased connectivity, machine learning and rising cyber threats to infrastructure pose new and complex risks. Against this background the infosecurity community is tasked with simplifying information security to manage and mitigate increasing risks and enhance organisational resilience.
The Keynote Stage addresses the challenges of building cybersecurity strategies and tactics to protect an organisation’s critical information assets. From research with the information security end-user community and consultation with an Advisory Council of senior industry practitioners, the Keynote Stage is the hub of the conference.
This year’s Keynote Stage line-up includes:
• Adam Banks, Chief Technology and Information Officer of Maersk, presenting Lessons Learned from the NotPetya Cyber-Attack on Thursday, June 6:
• Paul McKay, Senior Analyst from Forrester Research and Tom Cignarella, Director, Security Coordination Center for Adobe on Future Proofing Cybersecurity for the Next Tech Frontier: Quantum, Ai, Blockchain. Tuesday, June 4, 15.15-16.15.
• Gavin Ellis, CISO, Nuclear Decommissioning Authority in conversation discussing Cyber-Physical Security: Cyber Risk Management Strategies for Connected OT and IT Networks, June 4, 16:30 to 17:25.
• Deborah Haworth, Head of Information Security Penguin Random House UK; Peter Brown, Group Manager Technology Policy, Information Commissioner’s Office; Titta Tajwer, CISO, News UK in conversation discussing Navigating Complex Regulatory Oversight to Ensure Privacy, Security & Compliance, June 5, 16:40 – 17:30.
Troy Hunt will deliver the Hall of Fame Annual Lecture on the topic of Rise of the Breaches on the Keynote Stage (11.20-12.10, June 6) where he will be officially inducted into the Infosecurity Hall of Fame.
Other conference tracks:
The programme also features Strategy Talks, Tech Talks, Talking Tactics, Security Workshops and Information Security Exchange to provide information security people with key insights to manage information and cyber risk. It will feature CISOs from across industry sectors talking about how they manage risk and build resilience, plus technical sessions on how to solve challenges and deal the latest threats, manage governance, risk and compliance issues, and evaluate technologies.
Last year saw the show expand into the Olympia National Hall for the first time, hosting Geek Street, pictured, which brings together a series of in-depth technical sessions. Visitors can delve into the latest security research into exploits, vulnerabilities and threats. This year includes sessions on The Dark Web, The Enterprise and Platform Criminality by respected criminologist, Dr Mike McGuire and Ken Munro at Pen Test Partners talking about Regulating The IoT: A Dream too Far?.
Geek Street also includes an immersive zone, providing experiences for visitors and featuring interactive learning challenges.
