Infosecurity Highlights

I’m just getting back to normal after 3 days and nights of intensive networking at Infosecurity Europe. I was a great event, with excellent people, many new stands and slightly edgier presentations. The main value for me is in the networking. I always run into dozens of old friends I haven’t seen for years, especially at the excellent Portcullis Arms.

Amongst all the noise and bustle I managed to conduct filmed interviews for Computer Weekly with Ray Stanton, BT’s Global Security Director and Bruce Schneier. You’ll be able to see the results in a few days on the CW Web site.

As usual there was little that was truly innovative but many new products and a few interesting trends such as more focus on security “in the cloud” and data leak prevention, and better management tools to help tackle the increasing complexity of security solutions. I’ll be covering further highlights in later postings, so watch this space.
