SC Awards, BSides London and Infosecurity Europe

It was a busy week for security professionals in London; InfoSecurity Europe, BSides London and SC Magazine Awards were happening almost simultaneously.

We were provided with a booth at the InfoSecurity Europe conference & exhibition to host another NextSec event entitled “Finance and Cyber Security: How Banks Are Evolving To Combat The External Cyber Landscape”. Two global financial institutions discussed how they are reacting to the cyber threats that affect them, and how they are looking to combat that threat.

Attendees had an opportunity to gain insight into how financial institutions are dealing with cyber threats on both strategic and operational levels as well as to understand challenges and approaches to managing information security risk in large financial organisations

I was also invited to attend the SC Magazine Awards as part of KPMG’s Cyber Academy team. I helped to develop KPMGs IT Security Concepts course and also delivered it internally. It was a great honour to know that the course’s quality was recognised beyond the firm.

Finally, BSides London 2015 was great as always. KPMG were running a lockpicking competition, where I managed to make it to the Top 30. It was also nice to catch up with Thom, Javvad, Lawrence, Iggi and other great professionals in the field.
