Testimonials

As a first time attendee at the e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress, I was very impressed with the range of speakers, the topics covered and the material they used. This year being a virtual Congress I was able to commit to attending with the knowledge that I could dip in and out during the 2 days should anything come up at work. As it happens I was able to attend almost all of it. The virtual platform utilised was very intuitive and ideal for this size of event. The presentations, live Q&A, downloadable resources, Vendor Stands etc were all very good and I had no technology connection issues. All in all it was a thoroughly enjoyable event, professionally organised and facilitated and I will certainly recommend it to other Security Professionals. Thank you

Head of Information Security & Cyber Risk, Phoenix Group

The e-Crime Congress organized virtually on 21st October was one of a kind.  The contents were as always excellent and engrossing.  What stood out is the format, layout of the website, organization and logistics – it was absolutely amazing.  A huge thank you to AKJ Associates for hosting such a wonderful event!

Chief Risk Officer, RAKBank

Thanks, very enjoyable. Look forward to my invitation to the March event. Thanks to everyone making this possible in these difficult times. I actually spent the whole day on it!

Director of Global Security, American Express

As PCI London’s first virtual event it was certainly a great success for Eckoh. We were thrilled to welcome so many attendees to our speaker session as well as to our virtual booth. The agenda was well put together offering insightful and relevant topics. The event and build up was well organised and the actual event site was easy to navigate - from the lobby to networking and joining the conference sessions - making it a great experience for participants as well as delegates.

Marketing Manager, Eckoh

As always, the e-Crime Benelux remains an excellent event full of insights both from presentations and the resources available. I was apprehensive about the virtual version but the virtual space was beyond anything I have experienced. Navigation was clear and smooth and it was easy to make contact with peers and vendors. Actually, there was additional value to be able to exchange comments during the presentations, on the side-chat. It wasn’t too distracting and permitted to clarify questions as they came to mind. All in all, a fantastic experience. Only thing missing were the muffins!

Data Processing Manager, International Criminal Court

Tout d’abord je tenais à vous remercier pour cet événement auquel je participais pour la première fois et que j’ai fortement apprécié. La diversité des témoignages, associés à la présentation de solutions novatrices en matière de protection des SI, ainsi que la disponibilité des offreurs pour obtenir plus d’information sur leurs produits et convenir de rendez-vous ultérieurement font gagner un temps précieux. Les témoignages et partages d’expériences étaient très riches en information. Tout cela orchestra par une organisation rigoureuse et très plaisante. Le fait de pouvoir échanger avec nos pairs, de pouvoir consulter les documentations à notre rythme, avec parfois des videos de démonstration des outils et des présentations ou l’on peut poser ces questions est très riche d’enseignement. Enfin, l’environnement virtuel que nous nous avez proposé était sympathique et nous pouvions naviguer très facilement. Bravo pour cette organisation et la qualité de cet événement.

First of all I wanted to thank you for this event, which I was attending for the first time and which I greatly appreciated. The diversity of case studies, associated with the presentation of innovative solutions in terms of IS protection, as well as the availability of suppliers to obtain more information on their products and to arrange appointments later, save precious time. The testimonies and sharing of experiences were very informative. All this orchestrated by a rigorous and very pleasant organization. Being able to discuss with our peers, being able to consult the documentation at our own pace, sometimes with videos demonstrating the tools and presentations where we can ask these questions, is very instructive. Finally, the virtual environment we offered us was pleasant and easy to navigate. Bravo for this organization and the quality of this event.

Group CISO & DPO, Flowbird

Very interesting speakers / catch up with contacts etc. Also fantastic virtual experience - well thought out and added lots of value - actually preferred it on one level to the normal (always good) previous events.

Senior Technology Risk Manager, Credit Suisse

I really did enjoy PCI London yesterday.  Yet again AKJ Associates produced an outstanding virtual conference.  The speakers were first rate and the range of topics they covered were so varied that there was something for everyone.  I was particularly glad to hear Jeremy King give his thoughts on PCI-DSS 4.0 and how it’s progressing.  As for the platform on which the virtual conference was held, how easy can it be for us?  It’s so clear and intuitive to use.  Whoever it was at AKJ Associates that selected the platform, well done them!

Information Security Manager, Shaw Trust

I really appreciated the virtual conference model, and I feel it is one of the best online conferences I have ever attended. The speaker topics were very interesting and insightful, especially focusing on current unprecedented times. The resources available in sponsors’ booths as well as speaker presentation material was very relevant and helpful for the whole IT/Information Security/Internal Audit gamut.

AVP & Audit Manager, Technology, First Abu Dhabi Bank

E-crime and Cyber congress 2021 is one of the best Cyber conferences on the UK circuit.  This year was a first being carried out remotely and very different to the normal 2 day event in person in London due to Covid 19.  I found this remote approach worked very well and there was a great selection of speakers available and some excellent educational seminars.  I also found the panel discussions very informative with a great selection of representative experts from their respective fields to provide a good and balanced view.  I also found the resources very useful and thought it was a great touch that you could pause a session if required and that it was also available for 20 mins or so after it started in case you needed to attend to another matter prior to attending.  Very good overall as ever, fingers crossed the mid-year review will be back in person again covid depending!!

Information Security Officer, North Group

The Securing Financial Services forum was a great event, with some thought provoking presentations across the day and some good risk insights, I found the presentation covering differing approaches to risk appetite to be excellent.

Chief Risk Officer, Monmouthshire Building Society

The conference went well especially as it had to be made online instead of in person due to the coronavirus pandemic. It was really well organized and the platform was easy to use. As for the presentations, it’s always valuable to hear expert opinions in the context of issues that we deal with everyday in IT/Information security. There was a wide range of speakers with different backgrounds which allowed for great diversity and ensuring that all important aspects, hardships, processes are identified giving a better contextual background to the issues discussed.

Information Security Officer​, Qliro AB

Great job done by all involved. The virtual conference operated flawlessly given the variables of presentations given. I also enjoyed still having the ability to join with likeminded people, learn the challenges people are facing, or what is going right as well as of course the nod to the products out there. 

Security Consultancy Specialist Cyber Threat Management, BT

The level of engagement yesterday [at the Virtual Securing Financial Services Summit] was outstanding and we have already managed to book 2 meetings as a result, live on the day. 

Regional Marketing Manager EMEA/APAC, Veracode

I was pleased to be able to join the online version of PCI London. The user interface was excellent, I had no problems logging in and had immediate access to all of the content, such as the agenda and vendors. The sessions were easy to find and hit the usual high standard in terms of useful information, perspectives and presentations. With all organisations struggling, adapting or overcoming the challenges of the pandemic, (and in many cases all three), presenters engaged in ever-relevant information in terms of realising business, IT, PCI-DSS and GDPR standards at this time, which in itself added increased value and benefit to having this event.  With the core benefits of the conference delivered in safety and removing a lengthy journey, I found that overall I was happy to have traded the usual facilities and atmosphere for it to have taken place.

Senior IT Risk Manager, Diligenta

Thanks for another excellent StLF session; I am glad it was able to go ahead online.

Cyber Security Specialist, Addleshaw Goddard LLP

The online conference format was intuitive and an excellent user experience - I liked the ability to deal with a few matters arising between sessions and still get the whole session.

Identity and Access Management Specialist, Sanlam

Despite the difficulties that the current pandemic situation brings with it, I found the event yesterday in this new virtual format to be successful, very interesting and stimulating. I took new insights and ideas with me, which I will share with colleagues to further develop information security management.

IT Security Officer, MLP

I was impressed by the virtual format of PCI London. I’ve attended a number of virtual conferences over the last year, however, this worked very well having all the content pre-recorded with the speakers available for live text-chat.

Head of Critical Asset Security, TUI Group

The e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress is a must for people within many areas of industry, as the speakers excellent, the content very relevant, the presentations fantastic, and the event excellent. I left feeling more informed and ready for new challenges.

Senior Manager Operational Risk (IT Risk)/Data Protection Officer, UBL

We have sponsored PCI London for several years at the in-person events. I was slightly apprehensive of the switch to digital; however, the team was extremely organised and effective with communication. The event platform was clean and easy to use, and deliverables were met compared to other virtual events we’ve done. Thank you to the PCI London team for bringing the community together effectively and congratulations on another successful event. 

Marketing Communications Manager, Surecloud

It's been a wonderful experience to attend this virtual conference. Many thanks for organising the event

Information Security Officer / Data Protection Manager​, Jein Solicitors

eCrime Congress and AKJ always deliver extra value. This is one not to miss event on my radar. The 2020 virtual experience version was delivered with great quality in terms of its planning, organization and content regardless of the COVID-19 limitation and challenges.

CISO and UAE based Digital Transformation & Cyber Security Strategist

Personally I found the event very interesting and the speakers of quality. The virtual format that you proposed turned out to be original and I think pioneer in the matter. Perhaps the future will be a mix between face-to-face and remote conferences each with its advantages.

Responsable Securite des Systemes d'information Groupe, Up Groupe

Thank you for a conference with many great speakers and up-to-date information about the new cybersecurity arena. Listening to informative presentations from top speakers gave inspiration as well as knowledge for ways to work against e-crime. I am happy that I participated.

Fraud and Aml Specialist​, Ikano Bank

I enjoyed the conference very much.  I thought the platform and the format was exceptional. Liked the idea that I could do my day to day and still catch up on the presentations. Well done.

Senior IT & Cybersecurity Risk Manager, Scotiabank Europe

Eine sehr gelungene und professionell durchgeführte Veranstaltung, sehr gut auf das virtuelle Format angepasst, mit zahlreichen informationsreichen Vorträgen aus der Praxis für die Praxis.

Corporate Information Security Expert, Merck

This is now the 3rd e-Crime conference I have attended with AKJ and as usual the quality of the event organisation and presentations was excellent. In the ever changing landscape of cyber threats these events offer great insight into the approach and techniques adopted by peers to protect systems and data, complemented by industry expertise and tools. This event has been particularly useful as we look to develop our internal understanding of how our teams react and tackle an attack, with some very pertinent sessions on cyber training, battle simulations and threat intelligence.

Head of IT/IS, Ipswich Building Society

You’ve rallied some amazing people to come speak and a very empowering group of experts that you were able to bring together on panels discussions. All sessions were very informative. All in all, a great event, packed with lots of knowledge and great speakers, offering a compact source of inspiration.

Information Security Assurance Officer​, Swedbank

Well done. I enjoyed the presentations and information provided all day by competent participants. Excellent organised and managed. Thank you for the very positive experience.

Director of IT Governance & Risk Manager, Commerzbank

PCI London being online during a lockdown seems a more valuable experience than ever! The speakers, targeting lockdown or pandemic restrictions with regards to homeworking, PCI-DSS and GDPR brought not only a new focus to the sessions, but a valuable interaction with the industry in restricted times and in safety!

Anonymous

Thank you for the opportunity given to participate in this event. It was one of the well planned and organized virtual events I have taken part in recently. Online platform was impressive. I haven’t missed the experience of the real event except food :) It was well replicated with all the necessary resources and informative presentations.

STE, Emirates Group

Thank you for the great, structured and organized virtual session. It felt like we were physically present. Further, the topics were really the current concerns, not just in UAE but across the world and the speakers were very knowledgeable. Looking forward to the next conference.

Regional Lead – Cybersecurity Governance, Regulatory & Control Mngt, HSBC

Congratulations to @PCI_London for the superb virtual conference we sponsored last week! It was refreshing to see the continued ambition to devalue cardholder data and reduce PCI scope. Great feedback from merchants looking to keep all their Omni channels PCI DSS compliant.

DataDivider

Vielen Dank für eine sehr interessante und gewinnbringende Veranstaltung. Die Auswahl der Themen war gut gemischt und für jeden etwas dabei. Ich freue mich bereits heute über den Zugang zu den Präsentationen.

Group Information Security Officer, Citigroup

The e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress events always stand out from other security events, providing a somewhat unique combination of pertinent and relevant main-hall seminar sessions, coupled with a choice of educational seminars throughout the day. In addition, the venue is ideally placed to provide a good cross section of vendors and provide all the facilities needed at an event such as this, where like-minded professionals can network. Often at e-crime & Cybersecurity congress events I can make those important contacts with industry peers as well as speak to more vendors in one place than I could otherwise, making these events well worth the time out of the office. Thought-provoking, up-to-date and valuable.

Group Info Sec Manager, WM Housing Group

It was a well organised event and I very much enjoyed the presentations and educative sessions. Well done. I’d like to highlight the well balanced schedule with a good mix of themes and topics presented by a well selected group of specialists in their respective field. I am looking forward to attend future events.

Director, Governance & Risk, Commerzbank

I would like to congratulate AKJ Associates for organising an excellent congress. This well attended event is informative and highly relevant with well-chosen speakers and useful breakout sessions. Vendors are not overly aggressive and actually volunteer a lot of useful information. The facilities were equally excellent, if a little crowded on the first day, which is a testament to the value many companies find in the event. The wide variety of industry sectors represented was both refreshing and useful for the sharing of ‘war stories’. All in all a very satisfactory two days.

Head of I.S., Projects & PMO, Canada Life

Merci beaucoup de m'avoir invité à ce seminaire très interessant. Bon repas et convivialité, idéal pour une journée out of the office.

Many thanks for inviting me to this very interesting session. Great hospitality, ideal for a day out of the office.

RSSI, Sociéte Générale

In spite of the media coverage on the Covid-19 outbreak both globally and locally the e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress was very well-attended. This is a testament of AKJ organising a high quality event which is both topical and relevant to risk and cyber security professionals. The event provides ample opportunity to network with peers and vendors and the educational sessions provides more detailed information to the attendees on the specific topic of interest. As always this is one event which I make every effort to attend.

IT Security & Risk Officer, UBS

e-Crime remains a critical event for security professionals. Year after year, AKJ have managed to stay on top of market trends and deliver on the demand for topical expertise from its attendees and we are delighted to be part of the e-Crime series.

VP, Products, Proofpoint

I found it to be an extremely valuable source of information in the security space and to see what other organisations within finance and non-finance are doing in this space. The real life case studies and attacks being discussed were an eye opener. I would say if you’re in the security space, this is a MUST to attend.

Business Operation Risk, Man Group

The whole day was informative from start to end. Some of the speakers were able to introduce real passion and fun into what could be seen as a dry topic to the outsider. The breakout sessions I went to were packed out and were delivered by knowledgeable speakers, authorities in their own area who engaged their audiences well. Expect to be challenged in your thinking, meet some new people facing similar issues to you, and enjoy being looked after by the catering team.

Lead Security Architect, Lloyds Banking Group

This was my third Congress. I enjoyed this well organised event, which always gives me fresh insights and ideas. I will definitely be back next year.

UK Data Protection Officer and Deputy Group DPO, Stonehage Fleming

One of the best conferences of this nature I’ve been to. The presentations were genuinely interesting and very varied in subject matter, the conference covered a wide array of approaches to security and highlighted most of the current hot issues. The vendors were well selected with a good balance of products and services. I’ll definitely attend again next year.

Head of IT, Boyes Turner LLP

I love the e-Crime Private Meeting Series because they're to the point, a focused topic for discussion with like-minded individuals from across industry sectors.  I cannot deny the private venue and dining adds to the occasion but it is much more than that.  I always come away with further knowledge and understanding of the topic at hand and a few more industry contacts which is no bad thing!

Global Information Security Manager, Withers Worldwide

Francamente me pareció de los eventos más interesantes a los que he asistido nunca. Sin duda asistiré el próximo año.

Frankly, I thought it one of the most interesting events I have ever attended. I will definitely attend next year.

Chief Information Officer, Intropia

It was a fantastic event with a high turn out. For a presenting vendor the return has been almost instantaneous with two meetings booked and eight immediate follow up discussions. The content was excellent, extremely relevant and we will definitely be doing this event again.

Major Account Manager, Fortinet

Great presenters, great topics, well picked vendors, great venue = great event.

Head of IT, The Ratcliffe Groves Partnership

e-Crime is one of the best conferences that are happening in the region. The real essence of this conference is that it is very focused on information security challenges and trends. The speakers always have something great to share and talk about as most of them are from the same region so it is very specific to the challenges that we all are facing. The conference is not product or vendor biased as well which makes it more attractive however we get the chance to meet the right vendors to understand the new technologies that are available to manage the challenges. You guys are doing a great job and I am sure you will continue to do so.

Head of Information Security, Commercial Bank International

The event allows you to understand current and emerging threats and risks and hear how recognised experts offer effective approaches to mitigate them. This conference is essential for any risk manager.

Director of Group Risk Services, The Co-operative Group

A world class event, unrivalled networking opportunities within the global law enforcement and national security community. I have been coming for 10 years and look forward to the next 10 years.

CISO & CPO, Urban FT

The event was great. The speakers and presentations were of a very high standard compared to other events I have attended. The networking was above and beyond with so many companies and positions. The venue was in a great location and provided excellent catering for everyone to enjoy. I will recommend other security colleagues to attend in the future.

Security Architect Specialist, AIB

The congress was really well organized and interesting. High quality of speakers and excellent participants.

Group Head of Security, Gucci Group

I thought the "Securing The Law Firm: Special Session" was extremely informative with a good mix of Cyber Security topics and Legal sector thought leadership views covered.

As always, the event was professionally hosted by AKJ Associates, with the right mix, quantity and diversity of suppliers being appropriate.

I particularly liked the executive panel discussions and the general view for the need for a more collaborative and outcome based approach to client Audits and its ok to work with clients to understand what they are looking to achieve rather than just ticking the Compliance box!  

Information Security Manager, Risk and Compliance Department, Ward Hadaway

Excellent speakers and presentations with a very wide supplier participation, and opportunity to make and develop cross sector contacts.

Director of Performance and Portfolio, Metropolitan Police Service

I think you raised the bar this year in terms of presenters, topics and open panels. I enjoyed the presentations and found a lot of useful information during the day. Did a lot of networking especially with the vendors, which seemed to be perfectly aligned with current security needs, so I have already booked a follow up meeting with a few of them. Overall, a great event and great organisation; looking forward to next year’s conference.

Head of Information Security and Risk Management, Qliro

For me the event was extremely useful in understanding where the vendor industry is going and to get insights into fellow professionals’ thinking on areas close to the Information Security Professional’s heart. Some really innovative approaches and the case studies really worthy of a seat!

Regional Information Security Officer EMEA, APAC and Japan, ION Group

AKJ Associates are masters at bringing together the right people, at the right place and the right time in an event that enables us to make the right connections.

SABSACourses 

The e-Crime Congress covers a variety of topics relevant to cyber security and risk management presented in well-controlled short sessions to keep the interests of the delegates piqued throughout the day. The education sessions and the opportunity to interact with the vendors and other delegates enables the attendees to supplement the knowledge gained in the main presentation. Hence e-Crime Congress is now on my list of favourite events to attend.

IT Security & Risk Officer, UBS

I can only say that this is the best and most well-planned conference I have ever attended. All the sessions and topics were tightly connected (no overlap in content) and together they really pushed the "message" for the Congress. I have never experienced such good topic planning and control before. Keep up the good work.

Head of TS-CERT, TeliaSonera AB

As always the event was well organised & informative covering current security best practice and research.  There were also opportunities to discuss how to better strengthen cyber security responses.

Deputy CEO and CTO, Internet Watch Foundation

The conference covered all important aspects around e-Crime and Cyber security in inspiring presentations and education slots. Speakers from large European corporations as well as from vendors and consultant companies were highly qualified. Vendor representatives were available all day for more detailed background analysis. And the logistics and venue were excellent.  

Group DPO, Bosch

Thank you, it was a very productive day, with some of the top experts from industry as well as the top IT security vendors showcasing new and innovative products. The presentations were first class and there was a lot of opportunities to network with your peers and discuss the current threats and solutions. Overall an excellent day well worth attending and I would recommend it to anyone within the industry, as there is not many events that attract the top people like this event. Well done, an excellent and worthwhile day.

Head of Cyber Response, Telefónica UK

My experience is that eCrime conference events always provide expert and highly topical eSecurity content, with an interesting mix of subject matter with informative delivery, and the eCrime Mid-Year Meeting did not disappoint in this aspect. Coupled with excellent organisation and comfortable accommodation.

In the past I have generally found the majority of conferences to be of poor value, and not really worth attending, but eCrime events are the big exception to this, and well worth attending.

Manager I.T. Security & Technical Development, N M Rothschild & Sons

Merci pour ce bel évenement et une attention spéciale pour l'équipe d'accueil qui a fait un travail formidable. Ils étaient tous très accessibles, disponibles. Encore merci pour vos efforts et l'organisation impeccable de cet évenement, très bonne continuation et a bientôt pour un autre eCrime sur la planète.

Thank you for this great event, and a special mention for the welcoming team, who did a fantastic job. They were all very approachable and available. Thank you again for your efforts and the impeccable organisation of this event - best wishes for the future, and see you soon for another of the global e-Crime events.

International Marketing - Data Management, ManageEngine

Thank you for a wonderful and, indeed, inspiring congress! I learned a great deal. I really do appreciate the enormous effort is put into the congress. It's why so many of us come back year after year after year.

PCI Officer, Swedbank AB

Once again it was my pleasure to be part of the e-Crime conference. I am looking forward the next one in Dubai.

Head of Fraud Investigations, Risk Management, RAKBANK

I found the PCI London event a great stage for learning more about the impact that the changes in regulations and legislation will be having, not only on the payment card industry but in general for all businesses. The presentations were good and represented a good mix of organisations. The ability to talk with vendors in a non-pressured environment and network with other likeminded individuals from different companies was an opportunity that doesn’t happen on a day to day basis. For this alone it is very valuable.

Information Security Manager, Teleperformance

C’était ma première participation à cet événement. Et ce ne sera pas la dernière. Car au-delà de la logistique (parfaite), la gestion du temps (militaire !) et la prévenance de l’équipe d’organisation (discrète et gentille), les présentations sont de grande qualité, ainsi que les partenaires en exposition. Je n’ai pas pu échanger en détail avec tous mais les solutions de 2 partenaires ont retenu mon attention et il est probable qu’on organise un POC au moins avec l’un d’entre eux. Rien que cela valait le déplacement.

It was the first time I've participated in this event, and it won't be the last. In addition to the logistics (perfect), the management of time (military!), and the thoughtfulness of the organising team (discreet and amiable), the presentations were good, as were the exhibiting partners. I wasn't able to discuss in detail with everyone but the solutions of two partners caught my attention, and it's likely we'll organise a POC with at least one of them.That alone was worth the trip.

CISO BPI & IT Transformation, Crédit Agricole

Having attended the Cyber Threat to the UK Legal Sector roundtable discussion, this served as a very productive and informative event. 

It gave an excellent opportunity to share experiences, challenges and approaches to best practice in an informal yet simultaneously effective manner and forum.  The atmosphere was one of open dialogue, very much in the spirit of collaboration around shared objectives and strategy. 

I would therefore recommend participation at these sector-oriented events, whereby like-minded individuals can benefit from sharing views and work towards common goals.

Head of Supply Chain Information Risk, Pinsent Masons LLP

The event was excellent. Organisation, catering, timetable, networking opportunities were all exceptionally well done, to a very high standard. The speakers, & the content of their presentations, were first-rate. Could you have done better? No! Simple as that. It was a great day & I look forward very much to any future events you may have planned. Thank you so much.

Partner, DWF LLP

Organizing is an art which AKJ Associates understands very well. Their strength is their dedication to connecting information security stakeholders and service suppliers around the globe. It’s not just AKJ’s hard work but also the human interaction which makes it pleasant to work with these professionals. And our participation in the e-Crime & Information Security Congress was obviously worth it.

Managing Director, VASC

Sin lugar a duda, un evento imprescindible para tomar el pulso a tendencias de ciber-amenazas, nuevas regulaciones y nuevos métodos de abordaje hacia la mitigación de riesgos en materia de seguridad IT.

Without a doubt, an essential event to take the pulse of trends in cyber-threats, new regulations and new approaches to mitigate risks in terms of IT security.

Responsable de Servicios de Infraestructura TI - CFO - Galp Energía España

I thoroughly enjoyed the 2 days. It was extremely well coordinated and all talks added value and held my interest. Some of the revelations regarding the changing e-Crime and Information Security landscape were quite eye-opening. Clearly a lot of very positive work has been done, more encouragement is needed to harmonise approaches among industry and law enforcement professionals in face of a constantly shifting landscape. The e-Crime congress was an opportunity to meet some of the top minds in the field and share their views on how this can be done.

e-Crime Forensics and Investigations Manager, Barclays

Die Agenda ist perfekt vorbreitet. Eine vorbildliche und sehr effiziente Organisation.

Senior Security Strategy Specialist, Commerzbank

Once again, many thanks for the invite and opportunity. I’ll be delighted to attend the next event.

CISO, Carrefour

This was my third visit and once again the speakers were excellent and they condensed lots of relevant and interesting information within their presentations.  The elective breakout seminars give a more in-depth look at topics, and the network breaks allowed me to speak to vendors about their products and services.   

Head of Risk – IT & Cybersecurity, Paragon Bank

I found the event highly relevant for the issues faced across the industry.  The ranges of topics and multiple viewpoints being discussed helped to confirm existing strategies, inform others underway and prompt further discussion.  Overall a good two days investment, congratulations to the AKJ team.

Principal Advisors, Mastercard

AKJ has been a valuable partner for us for a few years now, enabling us to build relationships and engage with the CISO community in a number of key territories across Europe. The events they hold are a great vehicle for discussing the latest challenges and opportunities in the security sector, and our work with them has delivered way beyond expectations.

Senior Director of Marketing, Carbon Black

I would like to convey my thanks to you and all at AKJ Associates for hosting a well organised and highly informative event. The event not only gives the delegates the opportunity to learn about new technology and understand what other organisations are doing about cyber security and risk in different market sector but also enables them to identify gaps in the measures and framework implemented to deal with cyber threat and resilience in their own environment.

IT Security & Risk Officer, UBS

To all my fellow IT and IS professionals, “e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress” is an event you really don’t want to miss. It offers an excellent balance between technical value, market insights and good networking opportunities with peers & vendors. Compared to other events, it is unmatched. The level of organization is unparalleled, kudos to the AKJ team for their effort.

Network & Information Security Head, Sharjah Broadcasting Authority

The event was one of the best I have attended so far out of the numerous events I attend every year. The AKJ staff were very helpful in guiding all attendees for different education seminars and did their best to make this press-free event a truly outstanding one. Attendees were the right mix of senior professionals from different industries, organisations, countries with their own specialisations and there was an ample amount of time reserved for networking over excellent lunch and tea breaks. All speakers were well known industry experts and were happy to share their knowledge and experiences. Overall - Easy sign-up process, very well organised with an amazing venue and brilliant speakers. Not to be missed, truly outstanding!

Information Security Architect, eBuyer.com

As ever a cracking event by AKJ bringing the e-Crime Congress to Edinburgh. Edinburgh has a large, dynamic and entrepreneurial Cyber and IS demographic and it was exceptional to see this recognised by AKJ on hosting this event! Great speakers, thought provoking discussion and innovative vendor – a great a way to kick off this event!

Manager Information Security & Resilience, Operational Risk Oversight, TSB

This event was yet another triumph. I know the format is tried and tested, but it works really well. From a personal perspective I bumped into a couple of old colleagues, and was able to meet up with 2 vendors – one old, one new – in the breaks. Your speakers were outstanding, some of them inspirational, and as ever the topics were spot on for their relevance. The seminars I attended were excellent and gave me a number of ideas which I now need to follow up. For me it was a thoroughly worthwhile day. Congratulations and thank you. See you all next time!

Information Security Manager, The Shaw Trust

I was really impressed with the level of speakers and the subjects that were discussed.  A very well organised event which adds value to any business by providing relevant presentations by experienced speakers.  Personally the CybelAngel session highlighted to me the huge danger of data leaks and the critical threat to airport security as just an example – this really brought DLP to life!  A great few days which provided attendees with a wealth of knowledge and new key threats in the ever growing world of Cyber.  Well done to the organisers.

CSO Office – External engagement, Lloyds Banking Group

Very useful day - great to see real life examples of what firms are doing to mitigate risk, what we can do to protect ourselves, and what's out there to keep us awake at night. Well worth the time out the office.

Director of IT, NABARRO LLP

I have been presenting at PCI and eCrime events for more than a year now and every time the day has turned out to be great. The AKJ team has always been helpful and very professional before, during and after the event. The main point for us is the interesting discussions we have with all the delegates who attend these events. They often come back to us afterwards and request a demo of our solution that often leads to a sale. If you are serious about PCI DSS this is the place to be. See you at the next event!

Director - Corporate Development, EMEA, Ground Labs

Merci pour l’invitation, ce fut une journée très enrichissante en rencontres et partage de connaissances. Encore bravo pour l’organisation et merci pour le super accueil.

Thank you for the invitation, it was a day full of enriching networking and information-sharing. Congratulations once again for the organisation, and thank you for the excellent welcome.

Consultant Cybersecurité, BNP Paribas

I find the organisation and the content of the congress so relevant to the work that we are doing for our customers that since my first congress I have always brought 3 colleagues along so that we miss nothing during the two days.

I wait until I have attended the congress each year before I publish our audit plan for the company, this allows me to better set our target for audit and to ensure that we are doing as much as we can to protect ourselves and our customers from the latest attacks as identified by the congress.

During last year I identified an attack pattern which had been discussed at the previous congress, this allowed me to make a rapid identification and we took the immediate steps required to close the attack before any damage had been done.

Chief Information Security Officer, Atos Origin UK

Thanks again for inviting me to the great congress. I was thoroughly engaged and of course loved the environment, talks and seminars […] It was easy to network, for some reason it becomes a bit like a family gathering when you see people who previously attended the event, I personally love the mixture of tech and industry discussions, but the freedom to talk and converse with other delegates about experiences within their environment is key to making it such a great event. The beauty of this congress is that it’s not a forceful sale of any projects, it’s about discussion of the changing cybersecurity landscape within business, it gives you a great platform to be proactive instead of being reactive. My thanks to all the wonderful people at e-Crime and AKJ Associates.

Analyst Developer, University College London

I had an amazing time discussing and sharing knowledge about Threat Hunting and other cyber security areas. The audience was from multiple backgrounds within the Information Security space and this brought different views on the subjects. 

The sponsors shared a lot of useful information which will definitely help me personally when building the future strategies around Cyber Operations.

Thank you very much for the invitation and I am looking forward to the next events!

UK CISO Cyber Operations Lead, Aviva

This was my first such event and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I've been looking for a vendor agnostic, un-pressured, non-selling security event such as this for a long time. I'm annoyed that I've never attended any previous congresses, but rest assured it won't be my last. Stand out points include the organisation and scope of plenary sessions, presentations and indeed the diverse businesses in attendance as well as the support from government bodies. I look forward to next year's event and attending any specific topical ones that meet my needs between now and then.

Operations Security Manager, William Hill

Le sommet e-Crime France a permis de partager et d’échanger sur la problématique commune de la sécurité des données avec un public riche et varié qui, en fonction de son activité, a une vision différente. Cette confrontation d’idée permet d’aborder sous de nouveaux angles les best practices, les contraintes réglementaires en place ou à venir.

The e-Crime France summit provides the opportunity to share and exchange information regarding the common problems of data security, with a rich and varied audience who, according to their functions, have differing perspectives. This collision of ideas allows us to approach best practices and regulatory constraints (in place or to come) from new angles.

RSSI, Monext

I would like to say that we thoroughly enjoyed the event; the pre-event organisation was first class and the AKJ team were supportive. On the day everything ran like clockwork and we were pleasantly surprised to be overwhelmed with attendees to our presentation and the subsequent interest we received with visitors to our stand.

VP Alliances, Glasswall Solutions

e-Crime has grown to become a truly international event with informative sessions tackling contemporary issues and providing insight to the challenges that face security professionals right now. A blend of education, awareness, insight and take-aways has made this one of the best informational and networking events of the year for the security profession. Already looking forward to a varied yet current selection of high quality presentations next time around.

CSO, University of Dundee

Muchas gracias por darme la oportunidad de poder participar en el evento, me resulto muy interesante, supero al anterior, los ponentes como siempre de primer orden y las ponencias claras, directas, dirigidas a proponer soluciones a los problemas que tenemos todos como usuarios de las redes.

Thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to participate in the event. I found it very interesting, even surpassing the previous one. The speakers were as always of the highest order and the presentations were clear, direct and aimed at proposing solutions to the problems we all have as users of the networks.

Director de Seguridad, Novo Banco

C’est la première fois que j’assistai à une journée e-crime, et je suis sûr que ce ne sera pas la dernière. C’est une occasion rare de rencontrer ses pairs, ainsi que des interlocuteurs clés sur notre marché. J’ai eu la chance d’aborder des sujets globaux en séance, et plus détaillés au moment des pauses. La journée fut instructive et dynamique, me permettant de mieux appréhender les arguments que je présenterai à mon management et à mes clients. En outre, l’organisation, le lieu et les prestations étaient vraiment de très bon niveau.

This was the first time I had attended an e-Crime event, and I'm sure it will not be the last. It is a rare occasion to meet one's peers, as well as key speakers within our field. I had the chance to discuss global subjects within the sessions, and more detailed subjects during the networking breaks. The day was informative and dynamic, allowing me to better understand the arguments I will present to my management and to clients. In addition, the organisation, venue and facilities were really of a very good standard.

Responsable Sécurité, Risques et Conformité des SI, Sodexo

This year the e-Crime Congress was filled with excellent presentations - short, sharp and to the point. The organisation of both the sessions and conference as a whole was very good. At no point did I feel I was wasting time and came away feeling the whole two days was well worthwhile.

Security Consultant, Kier

Informative, interesting, intriguing, inspirational. The speakers and break-out sessions were excellent, as was the overall theme of the conference. A well organised event and one to which I will definitely plan to return.

Information Security Manager, Coventry Building Society

Working with AKJ Associates was a pleasant experience both during the phone calls and email preparations ahead of the event as well as on the day of the event, making sure we had the equipment we needed ahead of time, anticipating any logistical issues we may have had and generally being quick to respond to any questions or requests. We would definitely be happy to sponsor one of their events again.

Solutions Engineer, Anomali

The product presentations were great. Look forward to networking with some of the vendors as our organisation might be interested in two or three products that were part of the discussions.

Senior Manager Risk Management, Information Security, BCD Travel

Just wanted to thank you for the invitation for today’s lunch. I found it hugely useful and very interesting - many thanks.

Head of Operational Risk Management, Credit Suisse

I have to congratulate you, your colleagues and the speakers for a very interesting congress. This was really worth my time and I got both new insights and new contacts within the business community.

Senior Internal Auditor, Swedish Defense Materiel Administration

Merci pour l’invitation au salon e-Crime et bravo pour la qualité des présentations et pour les différentes thématiques abordées.

Many thanks for the invitation to attend the e-Crime Congress France and congratulations for the quality of presentations, as well as for the variety of topics discussed.

Head of Fraud Prevention, HSBC

The congress was very informative, insightful and inspirational. It was encouraging knowing that the current challenges my company is facing isn’t an isolated issue but one that is experienced by many in the industry. Most of the speakers’ content addressed real times issues and concerns with cyber/ information security as well as offering solutions, tips and advice on how to tackle them. The organisers of this event were spectacular and ensured a smooth event. An all-round fantastic atmosphere to network with peers and see what vendors had to offer. Brilliant!

Information Security Advisor, ACCA

An excellent event. As Education Seminar Sponsors, we were pleased with both the quality and the number of attendees as well as the format of the conference. We are looking forward to the next edition of the event.

Marketing Executive, DPS Software

J'ai apprécié cette série de conférences très bien menées et pertinentes, ainsi que les moments d'échange qui suivaient avec les différents fournisseurs. L'organisation était réussie. Je suis en effet très intéressé par la mise a disposition des présentations de cette journée.

I have enjoyed this series of very well-organised and relevant conferences, as well as the associated opportunities for discussion with different suppliers. The organisation was very successful and I look forward to accessing the presentations from the day.

Inspecteur (auditeur en système d'information), Banque de France

Not like many security events - e-Crime always brings what’s happening right now in security in the real world and not what books and magazines are talking about from previous years.

Group CIO, Belhasa International

Eine wirklich gelungene Veranstaltung mit sehr, sehr vielen interessanten Beiträgen.

Information Security Officer, KfW

Thank you for laying on such a great attendance at Wednesday’s roundtable. Exceptional! Do pass on my thanks to the entire AKJ Assoc. team for their great work on this project.

Sr. Regional Marketing Manager, Forcepoint

The event was stacked with high quality speakers in the plenary sessions with information and opinions very relevant to the challenges I face. The education seminars were particularly helpful and one has probably given me the answer to a problem I have been trying to resolve for some time.

Group Security Director, Littlewoods Retail Ltd

e-Crime Congress is one of very few events now I tend to attend as the quality of the topics and presentations are of high standard and quite topical. In addition I find that the event provides an excellent opportunity for networking and sharing information with peers. I wish to express my thanks to AKJ for organising and hosting such a great event.

IT Security and Risk Officer, UBS

It was a pleasure to participate in such a well organised event and at such a good venue

Sector Consultancy Manager, IT Governance Ltd

Gracias por la gran gestión del evento. Un placer participar pero sobre todo poder escuchar presentaciones tan interesantes.

Thank you for the excellent management of the event. A pleasure to participate, but above all to be able to listen to such interesting presentations.

Information Security Officer, IT & Governance Manager, Fon

The event was very informative and educational, I try to attend this type of event regularly to ensure that I kept up to date with the latest threats to my organisation, the best industry practice in defending ourselves and the market leading products which can be used. A side bonus is the great networking and the wonderful staff from AKJ who make these events the success which they have proven to be.

Information Security and Compliance Officer, Field Fisher Waterhouse LLP

It is a pleasure to attend every year to network and to learn more about the cybersecurity world. It was so beneficial.

Manager Security Compliance, Du

On behalf of the Agari team, just wanted to say thank you for yesterday’s luncheon. The delegates you brought together were very interesting, with lots of pains and stories to share. We hope that the overall discussion gave each one something to remember and think about. We at Agari found it so useful to contribute to the discussion.

Director of Marketing EMEA, Agari

The e-Crime meetings are an excellent resource for security professionals. With the wide range of presentations and the excellent networking potential that comes from the well structured and well maintained agenda, you are virtually guaranteed to learn something that is of significant value to your organization.

IT Security Specialist, BMW Group

The content was extremely good, valuable, and high quality. It was also very relevant, with some of the presenters being precisely the people in the industry that many of us most wanted to hear from at this moment. Two of the sponsors were also precisely the people I needed to speak to and so the time at the display booths was time well spent too.

Compliance Officer, Global telecommunications service provider

The conference provided an opportunity to explore cyber and information security concerns with peers, sharing our own perspectives and context to learn from each other. The presentations were of good quality and struck a good balance between technology providers and information security professionals working within the legal sector. I came away with loads of questions and more importantly, contacts who might help me find the answers!

Info Security & Data Governance Manager, Mills & Reeve LLP

It was a great meetup with my fellow Information Security colleagues across the Netherlands from leading technology companies and financial institutions. Thanks to Ashley Webb Brown for arranging such a great e-Crime private networking lunch.

CISO, Kyocera Document Solutions

I thoroughly enjoyed the e-Crime and Cyber Security Congress Germany in Munich. Content was well planned and informative, with actionable information and a great networking opportunities. I look forward to other e-Crime Congress events!

CISO, Modern Times Group

I very much enjoyed the opportunity to hear from peers and specialists about the same issues many of us face. I always learn something new, whether that be a new approach to an old problem or an innovative approach to an emerging problem. It is always good to network with those facing similar situations and valuable contacts are often made.

Principal Systems Analyst Programmer, Amadeus Group

Thank you so much for the invite, the event was indeed very informative. All the partners / sponsors sessions were excellent and we could relate to it directly. Look forward to being part of such events in the future.

Head – Fraud & Risk Control, Xpress Money Services

Evento muy bien organizado, ajustándose en todo momento a la agenda prevista. Contenidos de las sesiones muy variados e interesantes y presentados por oradores relevantes en el sector, amenos y conocedores de la materia impartida. Presentación de últimas tendencias en productos de seguridad, así como facilidad para establecer contacto con sus fabricantes en el área de exhibición. Oportunidad para relacionarse con profesionales de otras empresas y/o sectores con problemáticas similares e intercambiar experiencias. En definitiva, un día bien aprovechado.

Very well-organised event, adhering at all times to the planned agenda. The contents of the sessions were very varied and interesting and presented by relevant speakers in the sector, entertaining and knowledgeable of the subject taught. There were presentations of the latest trends in security products, and it was easy to contact their manufacturers in the exhibition area. There was also the opportunity to interact with professionals from other companies and / or sectors with similar problems and exchange experiences. In short, a day well spent.

Jefe de Sistemas Unix, Sistemas Unix, Cecabank

It is rare to have an opportunity to be out of the office to think deeply about the strategic challenges that you face; it is even rarer to be able to debate them with your peers in such an environment as that facilitated by the e-Crime programme of events.

Chief Security Officer for Trusted Borders, Raytheon Systems Limited

This was a well-designed event, with a wide range of experts in e-crime. Presentations were all informative, punchy and to-the-point, and there were some absolutely outstanding speakers. There was just the right amount of time for networking, and the vendors were well chosen and interesting. It could not have been better.

SVP, Senior Fraud Policy Strategist, Bank of America Merrill Lynch

The conference I attended in Dubai was first rate. The quality of the presentations & in-depth knowledge of the speakers was hard to equal. Great job and I look forward to attending next year.

CISSP - Risk Management, Visa

We were delighted with our participation at the STLF conference. This was our first engagement with AKJ, who produced a highly professional event which not only achieved our objectives as a sponsor but talking with the delegates also met theirs. AKJ made the whole process very easy indeed, guiding us through the build-up process and ensuring that all of our needs were met on the day.

Marketing Director, Encode

Les présentations de chaque utilisateur final étaient variées, intéressantes et complémentaires. Journée enrichissante ! Evénement bien organisé, la gestion de la journée est précise et rythmée au vu du nombre de présentations. L’équipe est top et à l’écoute. J’espère revenir l’an prochain.

The end-user presentations were all varied, interesting and complemented each other well. An enriching day! The event was well-organised, and the management of the day was precise and well-balanced regarding the number of presentations.The team was great and very attentive. I hope to attend again next year.

Consultant Sécurité des SI, EDF

I really enjoyed my day at the e-Crime Mid Year Meeting. I’ve come to expect them to be well planned and executed events with excellent and amusing speakers and I wasn’t disappointed. The agenda topics and education seminars were varied, covering relevant and up to date content and providing extremely useful information. A ‘must attend’ event to anyone with responsibility for security or risk management.

Senior I.T. Security Consultant, KCOM Group

A complete success, always glad to attend the e-Crime Congress. Can’t even think of ways to improve it. Looking forward to next year.

IT Security Specialist, Leibniz-Rechenzentrum

As a sponsor, this conference was extremely well organized with excellent attendance, content and offered a high level networking platform. We look forward to participating at future events.

Marketing Manager Emerging Markets, Intel Security

It was a great event to listen to on what is happening in the security world. It was good to hear from different security product vendors, CISOs and government investigating agencies on managing Cyber Security. The lunch session was a great opportunity to speak and network with people on current challenges within the organisations and ongoing thought process. Overall a great event.

GRC Consultant, GSK

One of the premier information security events in the region.The speakers and their presentations cover topics of relevance for the region and the networking opportunities are tremendous. The event is well organised with experienced event representatives providing efficient guidance for all matters of the event. I enjoyed being part of the event and look forward to attending the event next year.

Director Compliance & I.T. Risk Management, Jumeirah Group

Je vous remercie et vous félicite vous et votre équipe pour la tenue, l’organisation et la réussite de cet évènement. C’était riche, dynamique et finalement, les durées courtes de 20 minutes que j’appréhendais se sont avérées être un format équilibré. J’ai beaucoup apprécié la diversité des profiles  aussi bien des exposants que des intervenants. Les échanges étaient ouverts et l’ambiance sympathique. Bravo.

I thank and congratulate you and your team for the organisation, management and success of this event. It was rich, dynamic and the short 20 minute sessions (which I was apprehensive about) were a balanced format. I very much appreciated the diversity of the profiles of the exhibitors and the speakers. Information was exchanged openly and the environment was friendly. Bravo.

DSI, La Cinémathèque Française

The event was excellent, very organised and very informative. I was also pleased to see the police, national fraud units, and other bureaus of intelligence sharing their threat intelligence.

Information Governance & Security Officer, HCA Healthcare

First rate. The best content-per-hour of any conference I have attended, anywhere in the UK. Excellent calibre and content of presenters with right up to date messages. Good pace, short, focussed sessions – excellent.

Information Security Manager, Friends Life

The quality of attendees was great. Attendees were happy to engage and the right people to talk to.

NuData Security

Each and every presentation covered the core issues of problems we are facing today in the corporate environment. Each and every presentation was a wakeup call for what more we should be doing in terms of security, fraud and e-crimes as a whole.

I very much enjoyed and benefited from this conference and looking forward to more.

Senior Manager Fraud Investigation, Dubai World

An exceptionally well organised event, with a wide-range of speakers covering a variety of thought provoking topics! It was amazing to see and meet a wide spectrum of attendees from IT, Information Risk, Legal and Technical backgrounds who all have common ground of moving this subject forward in their organisations.

Information Control Manager, Strategy and Operational Performance, Lloyds Banking Group

Thanks for your support and contribution to make this event a successful experience, I have attended many seminars, but I had never seen or experienced such huge presence along with high profiling of participants.

Head of Cards Management, Commercial Bank of Dubai

PCI London was an excellent learning and networking experience. At least one supplier presentation has led me to revisit PCI options. Meeting peers in other companies has already provided a means to share experience on areas that will positively impact pending PCI work. It was great value for a day of my time.

Quality and Release Manager, BT

Like every AKJ event I have ever attended, Securing the Law Firm was absolutely first class in its venue, its programme and in the delegates it attracted; as good as it gets.

Senior Manager, Burrill Green

The key to a successful event is to make sure that you have highly relevant content, a targeted audience and the opportunity to network. e-Crime Frankfurt, held last week, provided just that.

EMEA Marketing Director, Fidelis Cybersecurity

It is an honor to attend and each year I learn more and extend my network through the e-Crime conference.

Control Manager Risk & Compliance - Emirates Integrated Technology Company

I thought it was an excellent event and better than the big security shows which I hate. I think it's nice that we can share our issues and experiences in a relaxed environment with our peers.

IT Security Officer, Taylor Wessing

I refreshed a lot of old business contacts and had the great opportunity to establish new ties with excellent international IT-Security experts. The presentations are very useful for me to increase the awareness inside our company and be on track with the latest eCrime trends.

Overall: The conference will be on my calendar from now on to be informed and prepared for the future.

IT Security Manager, Digital marketing provider

May I thank you and your colleagues for an excellent conference, I have advised all my colleagues to look out for events run by AKJ Associates. Excellent venue, good layout in rooms, food excellent, heating, lighting, audio visual all very good. Speakers without exception all very good. Really loved the 20 minute format, made the presentations focussed and relevant.

Manager, Technology Risk, Lloyds Banking Group

e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress has always provided the best expertise to help and implement solutions for protecting sensitive data from intrusion threats and compromise. Attending the 11th annual e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress in Dubai was an inspiring experience and I found the presentations very useful and well-structured.

IT Manager, Al Muqren Exchange

Good event & gathering for security professionals.

Principal Information Security Architect, PayPal, Inc

Thank you for an exciting and very well-organized event. It was a great opportunity for us to establish connection with many new potential clients as well as to educate ourselves on issues related to e-Crime.

Chief Operating Officer, Outpost24

Ce fût enrichissant d’échanger avec d’autres acteurs majeurs de la Sécurité informatique sur nos problématiques quotidiennes tout en ayant une bonne vision sur les grandes lignes qui se dessinent ces prochains mois.

It was valuable to discuss day-to-day issues with other key players in information security, along with developing a good picture of the major themes emerging in the months to come.

Responsable Sécurité SI - VEOLIA Eau

It was very useful for me personally and for my company. We are currently in the final stages of achieving PCI DSS certification so this event was so useful. The products demonstrated during the event were great and very useful in deploying the PCI DSS security controls.

IT Manager, Orbit Showtime Network (OSN)

Congratulations for running a very successful conference bringing together IT security specialists from organisations cross industry, vendors and consultants providing a very valuable platform to discuss security related trends, challenges, products and more.

The event has certainly proved to be useful both in terms of contents provided during the presentations as well as experience and opinions shared during the conversations.

Personally I would recommend anyone, whose responsibility includes IT security or risk management, to consider participating at future events organised by AKJ.

Executive V.P. Global Sales, CSP Security

Great event with a very warm and welcoming atmosphere. Lots of professionals attending who seem passionate about what they do – a great networking opportunity.

DPO - The Institution of Engineering and Technology

The e-Crime & Cybersecurity Benelux congress in Amsterdam was exceptionally rewarding and inspiring. Very much appreciated was the format of a number of intense sequences of short, knowhow-rich presentations that each addressed, in a compact but very accessible and inspiring manner, the state-of-the-art knowledge essence of an important and very topical cyber security subject. The range of discussed subjects offered an impressive broad spectrum of the current state of our professional field and its many challenging trends and new developments.

The presentation sessions were alternated with refreshing breaks and a lunch of outstanding quality. This also gave a nice synergy with the really good atmosphere and nice conversations (also between the congress participants themselves) of the information-market that was complementary to the presentations.

Beleidsadviseur Informatiebeveiliging & Compliance, Politie Nederland

The event really was excellent.

Managing Director EMEA, Airwatch

This is a great event which has many informative presentations from vendors and business sectors. I also use this time to meet new and old colleagues to exchange knowledge and points of view.

EMEA Operational Security Manager & Business Line Security Officer, SGCIB

We would like to thank you for this awesome event. Working with you and being a presenter at this conference was a pleasure for me.

Senior Technology Consultant, Symantec Corporation

It was a really great event. Everything was perfect starting from the registration and presentation timings until the closing of the event.

Senior Officer IT Security, Daman

The event was really useful. The quality of the presentations, both in terms of speakers and content, was high. The vendor led sessions were informative without being too 'salesy'. The sheer number of contacts from around the industry was fantastic and, overall, I'd say the event was equally good for learning and networking.

Security Consultant, Confidential

Eine sehr gute und informative Veranstaltung, die wiederholt sehr aktuelle und brennende Themen der Informationssicherheit, der sicheren technischen Umsetzung und des gesetzlichen Datenschutzes in Deutschland bearbeitet. Diese eignet sich besonders gut sowohl für Anfänger auf dem Gebiet der Informationssicherheit, die aus dem technischen Umfeld der IT kommen, zur Orientierung, als auch für erfahrene Kollegen auf dem Gebiet der Informationssicherheit. Das Networking ist erfrischend und Abwechslungsreich, die Vendoren sind sorgfältig ausgewählt und stets kompetent.

Data Security Officer, Bosch

I am continually impressed by the quality of the speakers, the relevance of the education seminars and the appropriateness of the sponsors and exhibitors. The number of and enthusiasm (and staying power!) of the delegates is always as impressive too - a great (and in my opinion one of the best) events to be part of whatever e-fraud capacity you find yourself in.

Manager, Financial Crime Products, NICE Actimize

Thank you for the successful event which you arranged. The quality of the speakers was excellent and impressive. Instead of a conference with merely theoretical content, the speakers were people directly involved in this business who were passing on their practical experiences of information security problems they had encountered in their working lives, and the best solutions to those problems. This was an unparalleled opportunity for the participants. It was also useful for us to have the opportunity to analyse more closely the characteristics of the individuals/groups we are confronted with, their working methods and their objectives. I would recommend all colleagues who are involved in information security to participate in the activities which are going to be organised.

Manager, Compliance Officer, Compliance Department, A&T BANK

I have to say that this was one of the best forums I have been to in a long time. Definitely something for everyone and just the right mix of vendors and industry thinkers. It’s about time the region had this wakeup call – keep up the good work!

Information Security Manager, The First Group

It was a very good event, very well organised, and communication throughout was great. The attendees were also very good. Very worthwhile event.

Solution Architect EMEA, Riverbed

I found the conference highly valuable. It was useful to network with fellow legal IT professionals and discuss some of the challenges we’re all facing, I found the supplier stands useful in getting an update on what the market has to offer and I thought the presentations were right on target in terms of content and delivery. I look forward to the next one!

IT Manager, Kennedys
