Description

Brought to you by our proud partner:

Once again we find ourselves fast approaching the dreaded three days of vendor booths, product demos, plastic lightsabers and over-subscribed talks that make up InfoSecurity Europe.

This year we will once again be taking up our spot at the famous three kings and offering sanctuary to weary feet for an evening of networking, food and drinks brought to you by our proud partner Waratek.

The topic:

Head in the Sand Security: End of Life software and patch backlogs are bigger threats than we admit. They don't need to be.

Ask a traditional Security expert and they'll say you have to rewrite your application when a software goes end of life. Meanwhile, security patches get bigger and include years old vulnerabilities that still don't get patched before hackers can infiltrate our system.

Why is this true in an era of virtualization and micro services?

John Matthew Holt, Waratek Founder and CTO, will lead a discussion about how to ride the wave of software vulnerabilities instead of being drowned by them.


Agenda

5:30pm - Registration & drinks

6:15pm - RANT Discussion

7:00pm - Networking, drinks and food until close




Questions? We've got the answers:


Who can I contact with questions?

Tom or Gemma can help:

todams@rantevents.com

gpaterson@rantevents.com


What if I've registered but can't come/want to send someone in my place?

Don't worry if you can't make it, just let us know! Likewise, if you want to send someone in your place. Just make sure they meet our entry requirements.


What are your entry requirements?

I’m glad you asked, RANT is a community of information security professionals who work at end-user organisations, so no vendors or consultancies, please!


Do I have to bring my ticket to the event?

We have a top-of-the-range delegate tracking system, (Luke with a clipboard and pen), so all we need is your name and you're good to go!


This sounds like a good event but I don’t know anyone!

We know how difficult it can be to start a conversation with people you don't know, we've all been there.
But don't worry, everyone attends our events to achieve the same goal: to talk about the industry, meet new people, and partake in a beer or two en route to said goal.

We encourage you to grab one of the RANT team and we'll do our best to introduce you to people who we think might interest you. If It’s your first time or you don’t know anyone, just let one of the team know prior to the event or at the front desk when you arrive. Or just shout “Tom!” loud enough and he will come and find you.

We've been running these types of event for 10 years now and we're quite proud of the community we've managed to build up over the years. We're certain you'll find the quality of the networking you can achieve at a RANT event unparalleled and a great way to dive deeper into the industry with your peers.


What is RANT? What’s the angle?

The RANT Forum provides a unique platform for the Information Security community to discuss pertinent and controversial industry topics that encourage participation and controversial debate. All RANT Events operate under the Chatham House Rule. It's an opportunity for everyone to voice their opinions, views and suggestions throughout the talk in a relaxed environment and to network with like-minded professionals. You can have a beer on us too!


RANT sounds awesome and I want to contribute! How do I do it?

That’s great! We are always looking for interesting speakers, partners, sponsors and ideas to help our community to continue to grow. Just grab one of the team or drop an email to lsmith@rantevents.com so we can discuss things further.
