Excellent venue, wonderfully conducted and good choice of goodies in the goodie bag. Look forward to attending more of this in the future

Head of Information Security
The Train Line

An excellent evening with a thoroughly absorbing presentation.

Great debate, well facilitated.

Head of Information Security & Risk
Financial Organisation

Excellent evening, always good to learn what threats are on the horizon so we can plan appropriately.

I thought last night was one of the best threat briefings I’ve attended.

The larger size of the group may have restricted some debate to “the usual suspects”, but also interesting to get some other industry’s views as well.

CISO
Financial Organisation

The presentations were both interesting and thought-provoking. Antonio’s talk gave us a very useful viewpoint from a customer perspective. He made some very pertinent points and provided excellent examples.

Bill’s presentation struck the right balance of how to defend without getting stuck in the weeds.

I enjoyed taking part in the lively discussion around both presentations.

Iain, I wanted to personally thank you for the stellar event you put together last night. The atmosphere you created was relaxing and engaging for the attendees. This allowed us to have an informal discussion with the CISO’s, and gave us the opportunity to learn from their experiences as well .

I believe we also succeeded in communicating our value proposition, and service capabilities to the audience. Looking forward to working on the next event together.

It was a lovely and thoroughly enjoyable evening.  I found the presentations excellent. I still found the content to be useful and informative.  The debate after dinner was lively and it was great to see everyone happy to participate in a frank and open manor.

The venue was beautiful and food was excellent.

Thanks again.

Head of Information Risk and Business Continuity
Financial Organisation

I thoroughly enjoyed the evening.  It was professionally planned and located within a suitably private area of the Royal Exchange Building.

It was nice to meet other security professional with similar issues who willingly shared ideas and situations that existed within their respective organisations.

The sponsor organisation presentations were very informative and did not just include the “standard sales pitch information”.  I also didn’t feel that I was being pressured into purchasing any of their products, although I admit they do have some good solutions and they admitted themselves that their security solutions are not the “silver bullet” to all aspects of IT security!

The Waiting staff were attentive, discrete and professional at all times.

I would like to again, thank Iain for this kind invitation. 

Head of IT Security and Digital Forensics
Healthcare Organisation

Very much enjoyed the presentation and the lively debate that ensued. Excellent selection of venue, guests and the topic.

Highly recommended.

Head of Security Architecture & Advisory
Royal Mail Group


 

Enjoyable vendor sponsored evening without the hard sell. Good honest debate with a knowledgeable peer group.

Head of IT Security
Amlin PLC

The venue was easy to get to and a very pleasant place to spend an evening.

The presentations met my expectations (Don’s was really great), but it was the general debate that provided the most value. 

As most security professionals know, there is no silver bullet to today’s challenges, and this in turn means there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Having the opportunity to discuss current security issues with a particular vendor without the heavy sales pitch was refreshing and far more useful than I had expected. 

CISO
Energy Organisation


 

Interesting mix of attendees. Very relevant host company, given the state of supply for security services. Good general discussion on trends, incident and loss metrics. Very good presentation on latest attacks and threats from Don. Discussion was a little bit unfocussed in the middle of the dinner.

Venue was very convenient, stylish – food was good. Definitely repeat the venue.

Enjoyable evening with great discussion points, which were debated by the assembled heads of security to suitable closure of each topic.

As a network provider this wouldn’t help me although it could assist some of my customers.

As and when opportunities arise I will contact them to pursue this further to get a demo to explore it suitability etc.

Evening in general:

Great to catch up with my peers and to discuss the issues of the day in a very pleasant environment, over a good meal and friendly company – thanks had a great night.

Director of Technology, Governance & Compliance
Cable&Wireless

An enjoyable evening. The conversations raised enough issues to ensure that the capabilities of the product/service in question were explored in more detail.

Head of Enterprise Information Protection
Daiwa Securities

Very interesting testimonial; a good overview pitch; and some challenging discussion from the guests. 

I plan to find out more about the product as the devil is in the details as to whether I will be able to make a business case for using it!

It was a thoroughly refreshing opportunity to engage in open and free debate about topics prevalent to our industry.  The collective mix of supplier, customer and vendor created the right blend for passionate yet constructive debate.

Whoever said security was boring?
