"Managing the 'people' factor: building secure behaviours
  • Traditional approaches to training 'security awareness' just don't work - focus on behaviours instead
  • Striking the balance between discretionary and mandatory controls
  • Using marketing principles to engage and tailor, including a blueprint to kick-start your programme

Why attend

....... I believe it is an essential conference and networking event for anyone in ICT/ Information / cyber security or law enforcement. Without fail I have always taken away something which has been beneficial to my organisation, whether that was a name, a product or an idea.

Head of Information Security - Construction Services UK, Balfour Beatty

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

Head of Information Security, Carphone Warehouse

It was really a pleasure to present at this event with such an excellent organization in support. There were healthy selection of presentations: topical, informative and well crafted. I greatly appreciated the networking opportunities and the opportunities to update on security vendors’ products and services.

Deputy CIO / CISO, Intrum Justitia

Definitely worthwhile taking the time out of the office!

About the e-Crime and information security Mid-Year Meeting
Six years ago the Mid-Year meeting was established through demand from private sector individuals at the famous e-Crime Congress. At probably the busiest and most prestigious gathering in the UK, the Mid-Year agenda provides practical guidance, tactical insights and real life case studies through a balanced mixture of strategic talks and technical breakout sessions to over 400 senior practitioners. The conference is carefully designed to provide ample networking opportunities for these private sector professionals who are tasked with safeguarding digital assets, protecting sensitive data and coordinating security and risk strategy.
 
Key Themes
The conference delivers unique perspectives on evolutions within the threat landscape, as well as innovative frameworks that can be adopted to manage existing and emerging challenges. 2014 themes include:

► People and process - insider threats, user behaviour, and data handling
► Incident response and management
► Measuring organisational performance and maturity
► Collaboration across the supply chain and beyond
