Buyers and suppliers converge for one-to-one business meetings at Security IT Summit

Registration is now open for VIP delegate spaces at the Security IT Summit. Organised by Forum Events and featuring Risk UK as Official Media Partner, the event takes place on Tuesday 3 July at the Hilton London Hotel, Canary Wharf.

The Security IT Summit is a highly focused event that brings cyber security professionals together for one-to-one business meetings, interactive seminars and valuable networking opportunities. Over a full working day, delegates will meet with credible solution providers who’ll be able to talk through their projects, concerns and obstacles, offering the best advice possible as well as cost-saving solutions.

Delegates will also learn about the latest IT security trends in educational seminar sessions led by some of the industry’s leading lights.

Supporters of the 2018 event include Headline Partner LogRhythm. Gold Partners are Darktrace, SonicWall, Bomgar and Twist and Shout Media. Varonis is a Silver Partner.

Delegates at the 2017 event have shared their thoughts on the value of the day. “Excellent event. Good selection of suppliers, nice venue, well-organised and good speaking sessions” is what a spokesperson for the Motor Insurers’ Bureau had to say. “Very informative day. Time well spent. Would recommend to other IT security professionals” is the view of a spokesperson from Nomura. “Great organisation and a very efficient and professional working environment in which to meet new challenges” is the view of the RNLI.

Chris Cannon, event portfolio manager at Forum Events, said: “We know that time is a precious, valuable and limited commodity for IT security professionals. If they tell us whom they wish to meet, we’ll handle all the details. The Security IT Summit is also a tremendous opportunity to learn new skills and network with peers. We’re very much looking forward to welcoming everyone on the day.”
