The Pinafore Private Dining Room
The Savoy Hotel
Interesting and informative as always.
The harvesting of once-hacked credentials was a thought-provoking subject!
Michael Brunker
Regional CISO
Commerzbank AG
I thought the event was just great, the venue, food and beverages were marvellous. Thank you Akamai.
The subject matter and the debates I found extremely informative and useful, really enjoyed sitting next to Richard who was very helpful.
Great event.
Head of Technology Resilience
Transport Organisation
Excellent evening with lively debate.  Having a real use case for the product resulted in an interesting and relevant discussion.  Iain, as ever, was a superb host and ensured the evening ran smoothly.
Head of Transformation Risk and Control
Financial Organisation
Interesting topics and debate as usual – good participation and a good mix of firms. 
Financial Organisation
Good to have the topics split across a couple of areas so that interest and applicability maintained even where one of the topics was felt to be less critical for my current business…
Was made more valuable by having testimony in the room from an actual business client using the products and services  and not just hearing solely from people in ‘vendor-land’
Group IT Security Manager
Energy Organisation
 Host: Excellent as ever
Vendor: Interesting offering with good input from the client representative, especially with respect to minimal impact on customer experience
Director, Risk Architecture
