Information Security Solutions Europe Conference and Exhibition set for Paris return in 2016

EEMA, the leading independent European Think Tank focusing on identification, authentication, privacy, risk management, cyber security, the Internet of Things and mobile applications, has just announced that Paris will be the host city for the Information Security Solutions Europe (ISSE) 2016 Conference and Exhibition. EEMA has also revealed that Kim Cameron (chief architect of identity at Microsoft) and Bernard Ourghanlian (CTO at Microsoft France) will serve as Keynote speakers for the event.

ISSE is one of Europe’s leading independent interdisciplinary security events. This 17th annual gathering of like-minded professionals will take place on 15 and 16 November at the Innovation Campus, 92130 Issy-les-Moulineaux. More than 300 international delegates will participate in an education programme comprising of 40 Keynote, seminar, workshop and networking sessions.

The conference will be opened by Jon Shamah (chairman of EEMA and a member of the ISSE 2016 Programme Committee). Shamah will introduce Kim Cameron, the inaugural winner of the EEMA Lifetime Achievement Award back in 2012.

“ISSE is returning to Paris for the first time since 2002,” explained Shamah. “From then until now, we have lived through a truly global digital revolution, with the emergence of social media, the exponential growth of always-on smart devices, the Internet of Things, the cloud and countless other innovations all powered by near universal connectivity. However, the function of ISSE has remained the same. That is to help IT security professionals and information systems practitioners rise to the new and evolving challenges of the day and prepare the world for a safer and secure tomorrow.”

Information Security Solutions Europe (ISSE) was founded in 1999 as an initiative of the European Commission’s Directorate General for Information Society. This year’s event is supported by the European Commission, the EEMA, ENISA and Revolution Events.

EEMA’s conferences provide the forum for practising professionals to network with digital enterprise experts, high-level European Commission specialists and other Government experts. The organisation’s series of briefings in Brussels and London provide the ideal forum for industry leaders to tackle controversial hot topics in an intimate, invitation only setting.

Through collaboration with EU and global partners, EEMA has an established and growing network throughout Europe. This community provides the ideal platform to disseminate information and share expertise regarding the high-profile and significant EU projects with which EEMA is involved.
