Why attend

Almost 20 years at the heart of the cyber community

For 17 years, the e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress in London has been the largest and most sophisticated meeting place for senior cybersecurity professionals from government, law enforcement, intelligence and the private sector.

Back in 2002 it was clear that there was a need for highly select assembly that brought together business, government, law enforcement and Intelligence agencies in order to learn, share and work to combat cyber-crime of all kinds.

So in that year, AKJ Associates founded the e-Crime Congress after an approach by the Home Office, The National Crime Squad, The National Criminal Intelligence Service and the then recently founded the National Hi-Tech Crime Unit (NHTCU).

17 years on, we still work in partnership with the latest incarnation of the NHTCU – the National Crime Agency (NCA) – as well as the governments and intelligence agencies of many leading countries.

Today the e-Crime Congress is still the largest gathering of the most senior information risk and security professionals from business and government in the world.  The Home Office sponsored the public sector delegation from 40 countries in 2002 and we are delighted to say they still do today. AKJ continues to ensure the highest level of private sector delegation attends.

A must-attend event for the public sector

AKJ Associates understands the public sector. We have a global reputation for creating events with key governments and public sector agencies. We've run Interpol’s Annual General Assembly and numerous Regional Assemblies and executed events for Europol, World Customs Organisation (WCO), the World Intellectual Property Organisation, the European Commission as well as most G8 Governments.

The 17th e-Crime Congress will be the largest and most sophisticated meeting place for senior cyber-security professionals from government, law enforcement, intelligence and the private sector.

It will address the critical issues of:

  • Defending against nation-state actors
  • International law enforcement co-operation
  • Securing CNI
  • The government response to cyber-threats
  • Securing the IoT
  • Collaboration between the public and private sectors
  • Building and enforcing useful, real-world regulations 

The e-Crime Congress has always been a must-attend event for UK and international law enforcement and intelligence. Today, given the scale of the threat and the increasing costs of cyber-crime to business and government, it is more relevant than ever.

A must-attend event for private sector leaders

The 2019 e-Crime Congress will focus on the latest industry, regulatory and government initiatives that will help the public and private sectors to work together to improve their cybersecurity in the new cyber environment. How have firms benefited from closer co-operation with government and law enforcement? Does collaboration really help with the problem of nation-state actors?
Senior speakers from stakeholder institutions, shareholders, ratings agencies and insurers explain the new era of scrutiny and show how represents an investment in security can be an investment in growth and competitive advantage.
Our industry case studies are lessons from the leaders: who is really taking cyber security seriously in terms of resourcing and hiring? What benefits have they seen? Who is leading the way in terms of best practice?
e-Crime Congress 2019 will examine the corporate and social responsibility dimensions of cybersecurity, in addition to the technical. How can CISOs work with departments such as risk, finance, HR and more to build good governance, and leverage those internal relationships to embed security into business operations, functions and culture?
