The line-ups for the European Security Blogger awards and BSides London have been announced.
Taking place on Tuesday 29th April at Kensington and Chelsea Town Hall, tickets for the fourth BSides London will be held under the banner of “Connecting People & Agents of All Kinds”.
Following the content for presentation voting process, confirmed speakers include KPMG’s Stephen Bonner, analysts Aaron Finnon and Graham Sutherland and Jericho Forum and Global Identity Foundation co-founder Paul Simmonds. Full details can be found here and tickets will be made available where others are unable to attend.
The conference has already confirmed renowned industry speaker Trey Ford as its keynote speaker. Ford, who was chief organiser for the annual Blackhat conference in Las Vegas and is currently global security strategist at Rapid7, will present on the current proliferation of malware and other threats and discuss tactics for detection and containment.
Paul Batson, one of the organisers, said: “This year has been a real challenge due to a change in some of the core team but the community are really pulling together to make this another great BSides. Thomas and I really believe in the BSides concept of providing a free conference to allow those passionate about infosec to get together and talk about the things that really matter to the community.”
Also announced at the weekend was the shortlist for the 2014 European Security Blogger awards. With nine awards to be given out on the evening of the 30th April, the shortlist for the nine awards is available here.
Organiser Brian Honan said: “The main goal of the event is to allow those within the security community, who share their knowledge via their blogs, to get to meet other likeminded individuals. The actual awards themselves are a fun distraction to the evening where those who do contribute to the community are recognised for their efforts.”
