Security Serious is all about the IT security industry, and the professionals that work within it, working together non-gratis to help make UK Plc a safer place to trade online. The campaign has the tagline “we take security seriously – do you?”
Yvonne Eskenzi, the driving force behind this campaign, explained, “Security Serious is all about those that can’t, learning from those that can – it’s simple really. I plan to bring together our leading experts to convey their words of wisdom to those people and organisations who want to become more security savvy. The response we’ve received for this campaign, and the calibre of the supporters on board, all prepared to selflessly give their time to help create a safer online community is inspiring.”
Security Serious, running from Monday 26 to Friday 30 October, will see 50 of the world’s most renowned experts in cyber-crime and security freely offer their time and expertise to companies who want to become more security savvy and cyber-aware. A timetable of conferences, workshops, training sessions and webinars is scheduled to take place aimed at educating users in a number of security disciplines.
