Testimonials

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

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

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

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

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

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 10years.

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

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 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

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

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

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 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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What I attended was 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.
