Knowledge is power

Equip yourself and the business with the knowledge to protect systems from security threats

Infosecurity Europe has more than 250 exhibitors and showcases a range of new products from information security suppliers.

The event has an free education programme that addresses strategic and technical issues and draws on the skills and experience of senior end-users, technical experts and case studies.

Infosecurity Europe enables security professionals and business managers to establish a commercial justification for information security; refine their security policies; and select the most appropriate products to support their strategy. More than   10,000 visitors are expected to attend this year's event.

Information security has an effect on every aspect of business. Secure operations mean more productivity, fewer losses and a business advantage over competitors. Cybercrime threatens to undermine the confidence of consumers doing business online, which could cost corporations across the world billions of pounds.

Visitors to Infosecurity Europe can arm themselves with the knowledge to defend their company against present and future threats and equip themselves with the latest products to protect their organisation's reputation and new business practices.

There are 121 speakers in the education programme, which will include the industry's leading experts, government officials and end-users from high profile corporations. 

In addition to the keynote programme, there are also more than 60 seminar sessions split into business and technical streams which explore the issues facing organisations and the technologies available to address them.

The technical seminars include 21 chief technology officer speakers and covers security issues including intrusion prevention,  passwords, machine-to-machine problems, Linux and rogue wireless access points.

The business strategy seminars includes 14 chief executive speakers and focuses on the challenges and issues facing management, chief executives and board-level directors. The speakers will address getting business buy-in for security, internet security for consumers, justifying investment, corporate governance, compliance, networks and operational risk.

Two new niche IT security areas will feature in the 2005 show - IT forensics and biometrics. This will offer the opportunity to source and review the very latest in access control, authentication tools and digital investigation products and services.

Also new for 2005 is the Russian Pavilion. Information security has always been a high priority for Russian businesses and governmental agencies and there is a high demand for skilled developers. Information security companies from the region will be exhibiting at the show.

CISSPs and SSCPs that attend a seminar will be awarded with one CPE per session. By attending all three days they can receive up to 24 CPE credits.

Infosecurity Europe takes place at the Grand Hall, Olympia, London from 26-28 April 2005.
