#infosec18 Day One – The Highlights!

At 9.30am Infosecurity Europe 2018 opened its doors. Security professionals from across the globe filled the halls, all here to access the latest and most relevant information security solutions from over 400 exhibitors and a comprehensive conference programme.

Here is a look at just some of the highlights from day one.

A CEO’s perspective on cybersecurity…
Kicking off the week’s impressive keynote line-up was Baroness Dido Harding, Former CEO of Talk Talk with a look at why cybersecurity is high on boardroom agendas. Dido provided the packed audience with a fantastic insight into what a CEO really needs from the information security function, how to drive engagement with the board, how to gain support for investment and how to promote a security culture across the enterprise.

We spoke to Dido following the session to learn more:

The brand-new Geek Street…
If you were looking for techie security research, immersive learning and hands-on fun today then Geek Street was the place to be. This brand-new area was a hive of activity throughout the day and featured presentations, challenges, lock-picking and more, all designed to provide even more invaluable technical content on the event floor.

We chatted to Geek Street presenter Rich Smith of Duo Security earlier today to find out why he was here.

How do we prepare for quantum computing?
Next up on the keynote stage was KPN Telecom’s CISO, Jaya Baloo. Jaya took to the stage to talk all things Quantum Computing and in particular how should cybersecurity professionals start to prepare.

We caught-up with Jaya straight from the stage for an overview of the key points.

Exhibitors on show…

Day one of this three-day event did not disappoint. With over 400 exhibitors showcasing the latest security solutions, this was an unrivalled opportunity to touch and test the latest products and talk directly to people who provide them.

Earlier today we spoke to Cyber Security Innovation Zone exhibitor, Simon Fraser of Hut Six to find out a little more about their unique offering and why they are here.
