Cisco – addressing your security challenges at Infosecurity Europe

June 6, 2017

Next week marks the start of this year’s three-day Infosecurity Europe, the annual gathering for security professionals. Almost 18000 visitors walked through the door last year, and recent events combined with a growing awareness of the importance of security mean there’s bound to be a great turnout again for 2017.

The event runs from 6th-8th June at Olympia London, and the packed programme means it’s well worth a visit for anyone working in IT security, those with an interest in IT security, or anyone whose role brings them into regular contact with technology security issues.

Of course, Cisco will be there, on stands 140, D19 and H140. Click here to find out more about where you can find us throughout the event.

As WannaCry recently reminded us, no industry, sector – or even individual – is immune to security breaches, and threats are becoming more sophisticated and harder to detect, but also easier for hackers to use. Unfortunately, cyber criminals also have more tools at their disposal than ever, and are able to choose the time and target to ensure they make a maximum impact.

It is for these very reasons that we love attending Infosecurity Europe, as it gives us the opportunity to discuss specific security challenges with visitors while also allowing us to share our up-to-date insights based on the latest threat intelligence we’ve unearthed throughout the event.

It won’t end in tears

WannaCry may have been a timely reminder that technology security is a serious business, but there will still be time for fun during the event. For example, why not take part in Cisco’s virtual reality game, ‘AMP in Action’, and see if you can defeat the viruses threatening to destroy your business. You can also learn how simplifying your IT infrastructure can help improve your security levels, as well as taking part in our ‘Story of a Data Breach’ and finding out whether you would be able to save your data in the event of an attack.

And that’s not all – our security experts will be giving regular sessions on all three days. From examining the psychology of hacking to the role of digitisation in minimising your threat levels, these sessions are all aimed at equipping visitors with the skills and knowledge they need to keep ahead of the cyber criminals.

The full list of these ‘not to be missed’ talks can be found here, but below is a sneak preview of just some of the topics they’ll be covering:

  • Security risk management and GDPR
  • Anatomy of an attack
  • Why an architectural approach is now crucial
  • Threat intelligence update: the latest on ransomware
  • You’ve been breached. Now what?

It’s bound to be a fantastic event – and best of all, it’s free to register, so what are you waiting for?

We look forward to seeing you there.
