What the market says

I found the event to be very well organized and the topics and speakers to be very relevant and engaging. Also, the caliber of attendees was first rate. Thanks for putting on such a fine event.

Director of Information Security, FireHost

Once again the mid-year e-Crime Congress has delivered a range of diverse and thought provoking presentations. In plenary and educational seminar sessions the speakers operated at the cutting edge - very much a conference with its eye on the horizon. Of course no such event is complete without the right networking opportunities - and here too the congress managed exactly the right balance.

Managing Director, LWH Solutions

I found the event in more understanding what Cyber is and is not compare to other events where cyber was simply equaled to information security (which is not the case). I was pleased by the both the audience and the quality of the presentations.

Cyber Security Domain Architect, Lloyds Banking Group

The e-Crime Mid Year, hosted by AKJ Associates, was a really good event for Cryptomathic as it gave us the opportunity to meet existing customers as well as new potentials in a splendid environment.

Managing Director, Cryptomathic

Some very good presentations and a very informative day overall. Thank you AKJ Associates.

Security Intelligence Manager, Friends Life

I thought that the event covered a lot of information and topics that are very relevant to me currently. It gave me some good advice and changed some of my thought perspectives on a matter of subjects. Overall a very worthwhile day spent away from the office.

I.T. Security Manager, Vertu

I thought the audience and level of engagement was fantastic.

Global Director of Marketing, Hewlett Packard Enterprise formely Voltage Security

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

I have been attending the e-crime forum since 2007, 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

Definitely worthwhile taking the time out of the office!

CISO, Scotia Gas Networks

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.

CIO Information & Technology Security, Direct Line Group

The whole format of the congress is very good, I like the quick fire 20 minute slots, and the networking side, and of course the very popular breakout sessions.

The event allows you to understand current and emerging threats and risks and hear how recognized experts offer effective approaches to mitigate them. This conference is essential for any Risk manager.

I found the event extremely useful; a busy day but the right balance of product specific information and thought provoking and relevant presentations.

Information Security Manager, Homeserve

The event was very informative and educational, I try to attend this type of event regularly to ensure that I kept up to date with the latest threats to my organisation, the best industry practice in defending ourselves and the market leading products which can be used. A side bonus is the great networking and the wonderful staff from AKJ who make these events the success which they have proven to be.

Always worthwhile. I took a couple of takeaways yesterday, they were invaluable. Vodafone made a fantastic contribution to the event, great presentation and so much engagement !!

I though the conference was really well organised, the venue excellent, the balance of networking time to talks was good (as well as the option to network with suppliers at any time) and the management of the speakers excellent.

The forum was an excellent, well organised event with topical speeches which were not only informative, but gave alternative ideas and solutions to some of the current challenges we are all facing.

Information Security Specialist, MoneySupermarket.com

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!

Head of I.T. Security Europe, Enterprise Rent-A-Car

Thanks for an event that impressed with high calibre presenters, intriguing content, and a great 'host'. Also a powerful opportunity for informal face-to-face meetings and catch-ups right across the industry.

I found the event very informative. The format of short presentations, access to supplier stands without the hard sell and the networking sessions were all very good.

What I attended was first rate. The best content-per-hour of any conference I have attended, anywhere in the UK. Excellent calibre and content of presenters with right up to date messages. Good pace, short, focussed sessions – excellent.
