A very interesting meeting and for us, quite topical
Information Security Officer
Daiwa Capital Markets
I thought the evening was a good balance of sales presentation of debate. Also an excellent opportunity to see how others are coping (or not) with the identity and authorisation issues. Many thanks for inviting me. CISO, Financial Organisation Good mix of people. Good choice of topics – made people speak. Good speakers – they provoked conversation which was great. Good environment for dinner – nice and central, quiet and comfortable. Stimulating conversation – learnt a few things and it challenged some of thinking so served the purpose for attending. I thought the Chair did a good job at “correcting / steering” the conversation back on track.

The event was well organised and was able to achieve the fine balance required between sales and marketing from the sponsor organisation, innovative insight from a guest speaker and challenging debate from attendees. The quality of discussion held was excellent and well prompted to ensure that all attendees had the chance to participate, matched only by the fine cuisine and dining experience provided to all attending.
Overall, an excellent event with a good mix of industry professionals representing a cross section of requirements and security challenges. I would welcome the opportunity to attend similar such events in the future.

Location: Excellent. Food: Excellent. Agenda: Well managed and there was good opportunity to discuss issues. The moderation worked well in keeping things on track and stopping things going off on a tangent.
Sponsor: Informal presentation format was effective as everyone in the room understood the problem space so there was no need for the use of screen shots or a demonstration to get the point across. The balance between the vendor and Lord Erroll’s presentation worked well as the vendor is always going to biased to what their solution does but Lord Erroll raised some interesting points to consider.
Senior security representatives from a variety of sectors are given the opportunity to analyse an evolving area of security interest with a security visionary and leading vendor in that space. The conversation explores the evolution of the threat, the impact on the diverse participating organisations, the anticipated threat development and the whole series of measures that might be deployed to mitigate it.
Iain chairs the event and orchestrates a lively debate over dinner in sumptuous surroundings. A great way to develop your network, debate the security issues of the day and develop insight into some of the key challenges that we face.
Courion’s talk was interesting – I think some slides to frame the discussion may have helped and was keen to learn more about their current offerings and strategic vision and how they see their customers requirements changing with regard compliance requirements and risk management.
