This years’ Infosecurity Europe has kicked off this morning and is currently in full swing.

There is a fantastic buzz in the air as security gurus and industry experts descend on London’s Olympia conference centre. Infosecurity is Europe’s number one security event which is currently taking place in London from 4-6 June 2019. 2019 is already proving successful with over 400 exhibitors set to attend.

The event will feature some of the most forward-thinking, innovative cyber security companies and experts from around the world.

Attendees at the event will be able to hear from the likes of Ann Johnson, Corporate Vice President of Cybersecurity Solutions Group for Microsoft, and Troy Hunt, founder of data breach database Have I Been Pwned The event has allowed LaunchPad to showcase its new technology solutions which involves an interactive one-stop-shop whereby visitors can listen to and explore some of the new exhibitor novelties at the show.

Also new for 2019 is the FutureSec programme, designed specifically to help the industry boost its innovation capability.

So far, we have seen a number of news announcements from tech giants including Morphisec who announced their Version 3.5 offering on the first day and we’re expecting to see further news announcements as the conference continues.

We caught up with Andy Heather, VP at cybersecurity firm Centrify who are exhibiting at this years’ event and he had this to say about how employers treat security measures: “It’s critical to recognise that the bad guys are no longer outside of the organisation; they have already broken in or are insiders with legitimate log-in credentials. That’s why identity-based security is so important, because businesses need to know exactly who these bad actors are and limit where they go, what they do and always record and monitor activity.”
