The conference covered all important aspects around e-Crime and Cyber security in inspiring presentations and education slots. Speakers from large European corporations as well as from vendors and consultant companies were highly qualified. Vendor representatives were available all day for more detailed background analysis. And the logistics and venue were excellent.

Yesterday was my fourth e-Crime in Frankfurt and – as always – I enjoyed the conference. The organisation of the event was excellent! The presentations were interesting and gave a good overview about the actual IT security universe. I was able to make interesting contacts and even found two security solutions which I will be looking at during the upcoming weeks. I am looking forward to e-Crime 2015! Thanks for your great support!

The e-Crime is a must visit for technical interested privacy experts. The networking possibilities are great and the shared knowledge about best practices as well as new threats and technologies to avoid these threats is very useful. I like the 20 min per session approach for getting an overview.

The e-Crime Europe meeting was very well organized, thanks. The combination of 20-minute presentations, with the opportunity to meet with presenters afterwards, was ideal. It allowed for a high number of subjects to be introduced, and each participant could concentrate on specific areas of interest. A very efficient use of valuable time. I will certainly recommend this to others.

Group Information Security Officer, Citigroup

A good opportunity to get an update on the reality of e-crime today, and at the same time to learn about related products and services of vendors.

Chief Security Officer, Rabobank Group

A great event to network with peers and partners. Reassuring to see the same challenges across the industry.

Head of Information Security, Carphone Warehouse

I found the meeting yesterday very useful. It really helped me to get a better understanding of the existing threats and trends, and challenged some of my previous assumptions. Like all AKJ events, the meeting was focused on the actual issues at hand, rather than a never ending series of sales pitches. It was definitely a day well spent!

Hands-on education seminars offer in-depth advice on specific issues and detail how technology can help and assist with a range of scenarios. 

The e-Crime conference was excellent as ever. There was a wide range of presentations with speakers from many fields bringing their experience to all. I was most interested in how organisations are implementing risk-based controls - something Information Security professionals were always supposed to have done but more likely fell in to the compliance check-box trap. I'm definitely going to look more at threats, attack vectors and attack trees to get a better understanding of whether my organisation is resilient to attack rather than compliant to a list of controls. I'm also going to look into changing the way we perform user awareness so we get people who are properly engaged by understanding risk exposures to them and how they can protect the business.

e-Crime is one of the few 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 are 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 that 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.
