Testimonials

I want to thank and congratulate AKJ Associates on a terrific e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress. Your professionalism, along with the able support of all your sponsors, delivered a great event that was appreciated by all.

Group Information Security Officer, Citigroup

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

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

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

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 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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

The agenda was perfectly arranged; organisation was exemplary and very efficient

Senior Security Strategy Specialist, Commerzbank

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A really successful event with very, very many interesting contributions.

Information Security Officer, KfW

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

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

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

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

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.
