SecOps in the Boardroom

ISSA-UK Security Training Day & 'Pitch on the Ship'

HQS Wellington, River Thames, Thursday 26 Sep 2019


FREE FOR ISSA-UK MEMBERS (6.5 CPEs on attending) 


It's time for the annual ISSA-UK - 'Pitch on the Ship' event - where 10 security software/solution vendors battle it out for Best Product, Best Service Provider and Best Speaker prizes, as voted by you, the audience. Of course to top that off we continue our tradition of excellent keynote speakers throughout the day and into the evening reception.


How does it work? We offer each vendor a 10 minute speaking pitch to tell us what makes their product the best, in a fast-paced and lively environment (let's get them a few questions this year too!).  This unique format enables delegates to understand exactly where the provider or technology is in the market, and each vendor will have a stand so you can find out more about their solutions.  Interspered you have our keynotes, lunch, and networking with peers. It's always a great day! 


After hours, we will enjoy a networking drinks reception and entertainment on deck, sampling the autumnal weather at it's finest (we hope!)

Mike Jones (sting3r) has a background in cryptology. He has performed numerous penetration tests for various industries such as the Department of Defense, major financial institutions, casinos, telecoms, and various others. Mike has developed exploit techniques both network and app-based as well as physical. The experience Mike has had has been on both sides of security, being a long term member of various hacking groups and APT nation-state groups. His experience was refocused to helping industries protect themselves. The key to a good defence is to know who you're defending against.
