Security in the Spotlight Training Day
HQS Wellington, River Thames
London, United Kingdom
Wednesday 13th July, 2016
FREE FOR ISSA-UK MEMBERS
(5 CPEs on attending)
In the Dragons' Den event, ten security software/solution vendors battle it out for the best Supplier and best Product prizes, as voted by you the audience. 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. This unique format enables delegates to understand existing and emerging technologies on the market, and each Dragon will have a stand so you can find out more about their solutions.
After hours, we will enjoy a networking drinks reception and stand up comedy from Jim Shields at Twist & Shout on deck and sample the British weather at it's finest (we hope!)

'Identify, Intervene, Inspire - Helping young people to pursue careers in cyber security, not cyber crime'
Recent events have provided evidence of the extent to which young people can become involved in cyber crime. In September 2015 representatives from CREST member companies met the National Crime Agency’s National Cyber Crime Unit (NCA NCCU) to assist the NCCU’s efforts to prevent young people being tempted to participate in illegal online activities.
This presentation will describe the pathway and contributing factors that can lead young people toward illegal activity and describes how the industry and law enforcement are working together to provide positive intervention activities and help to redirect young peoples’ attention to a legitimate career in this exciting and challenging industry.
Ian Glover has worked in the IT industry for the last 40 years and has been working in information security for the last 36 years: and has enjoyed nearly every minute of it. As President of CREST he has taken it to a position of influence in the technical security industry. He has been instrumental in a significant number of major initiatives in the cyber security industry.

16.00 Closing Speaker - Thomas Fischer, ISSA-UK
Threat Hunting refers to proactively and iteratively searching through networks or datasets to detect and respond to advanced threats that evade traditional rule- or signature-based security solutions. But what does that really mean? And what real impact does it have on the security team? More and more security data is being produced and usually aggregated into a central location or body to hopefully take quick and informed decisions on attacks or compromises amongst a mountain of data.
What if a more thoughtful and intelligent way of generating alerts could draw an analyst attention to the right place at the right time? We will explore this theory and establish working foundations for implementing an intelligent threat hunting model.
BIO - With over 25+ years experience, Thomas has a unique view on security in the enterprise with experience in multi domains from policy and risk management, secure development and incident response and forensics. Thomas has held roles varying from security architect in large fortune 500 company to consultant for both industry vendors and consulting organisations.
