In today’s complex and always-connected world, attackers can exploit an increasing number of entry points to inflict damage to companies and individuals. With more and more players (cybercriminals, whistle-blowers, governments etc.) that can pose ever more serious threats such as APTs, espionage and fraud, it is very important to be prepared for the future.
As the threat of cybercrime continues to grow, it is key to connect companies to the latest thinking in cyber security. Amongst the leading cyber security events is Cyber Security EXPO, which will be co-located with IP EXPO Europe at London’s ExCeL. Held on the 8 – 9 October 2014, Cyber Security EXPO will aim to provide CISOs and IT security staff the tools, new thinking and policies to meet the 21st century business cyber security challenge.
With over 300 exhibitors, this year’s event will feature a range of activities to bring us closer to the hacking community and its techniques. The Cyber Hack, a live open source security lab, will expose visitors to demonstrations and discussions of the latest attacks and identified risks.
The event will also host a wide range of seminar sessions including:
- Living in a surveillance state – Mikko Hypponen, F-Secure
- Have cyber security professionals lost their touch? – Jitender Arora, Independent
- The paradox of big data – Bruce Schneier, Co3 Systems
- Keeping the world’s biggest phone business safe and its shareholders happy – Richard Knowlton, Vodafone
- Protecting your organization in an outside-in world – Jon Callas, Silent Circle
- CIO & CSO in the C-Suite: Where do they belong? – Robert Quinn and Rick Howard, Palo Alto Networks
- Now you see me, now you don’t: chasing evasive malware – Giovanni Vigna, Lastline.
It is crucial that businesses implement an holistic approach to protecting their assets and this most certainly involves a proactive rather than reactive approach to security.
