Growing by 50% over the last 2 years, the show is Europe’s largest gathering of information security professionals.

This year leading exhibitors including Kaspersky Lab, Group-IB, Domino’s Pizza, GSK Technology, KPN Telecom, Marks & Spencer, Pinsent Masons, Ramsay Healthcare UK, Sainsbury’s, The Analogies Project, Trainline, Vodafone and Williams Grand Prix Engineering and others presented their solutions to more than 19,500 visitors during three days of the show.

Kaspersky Lab’s deep threat intelligence and security expertise is constantly transforming into security solutions and services to protect businesses, critical infrastructure, governments and consumers. The company’s comprehensive security portfolio includes leading endpoint protection and a number of security solutions and services to fight digital threats.

Group-IB is one of the global leaders in providing high fidelity Threat Intelligence and best in class anti fraud solutions. Since 2003, the company has been active in the field of computer forensics and information security, protecting the largest international companies against financial losses and reputational risks. Group-IB is recommended by the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE).

A host of senior cybersecurity professionals were taking part in Infosecurity Europe’s Keynote Stage conference programme, to discuss and debate the latest trends and hot topics in information security – at a time cyber risk is more than ever on the global agenda.

The programme was addressing the challenges of building strong cybersecurity strategies and tactics to protect an organisation’s critical information assets.

The congress agenda will feature panel discussions, roundtables, and speeches by key international cybersecurity experts.
On 5 July, an interactive training session on managing cybersecurity risks will be held as part of the ICC. The training session will let representatives of government agencies, security services, telecoms operators, the financial and banking sector, global vendors of cybersecurity products and solutions, and major cybersecurity professionals check how prepared Sberbank is to tackle critical situations in the cybersphere. It will take place at Sberbank’s Yuzhny Port Data Processing Centre.
“In recent years the growth of cybercrime has become one of the biggest global risks,” commented Stanislav Kuznetsov, Deputy Chairman of Sberbank’s Executive Board. “We are certain that it will only be possible to successfully combat cybercrime if effective cooperation is established internationally at both public and private level and law enforcement is involved. Sberbank has initiated the creation of a platform that will help us join forces to counteract cybercrime and boost global cooperation in this area.”
