SECURE London Returns with Powerful Lineup of Cybersecurity Leaders

Following its highly successful launch last year, ISC2 SECURE London 2023 returns, taking place at Kings Place, London, 21 September 2023 to explore face-to-face the latest issues impacting cybersecurity. Professionals involved in every aspect of cyber, information, software, IT and infrastructure security from across the region will engage in a full day of new learning and partnership opportunities with their peers and industry vendors.

All are invited to participate in a full day of powerful cybersecurity collaboration and learning. Participants will take with them actionable ideas from a diversity of expert perspectives to better secure their organization, and ISC2 members earn up to 7 CPE credits.

In addition to an exclusive reception that will close the event, there will be opportunities to network with cybersecurity professional peers in the exhibit hall and throughout the day during breaks and sessions.

Compelling Perspectives Kick It All Off

The event kicks off Thursday morning with an eye-opening keynote on preparing for cyber crises from highly esteemed cyber practitioner Dr. Saritha Arunkumar, FCIIS, FBCS, Master Inventor, IBM Public Cloud WorldWide Technical Leader – Security. She’ll discuss the role of governance, risk and compliance in the cloud and beyond, and why it’s vital for leaders to advocate for continuous preparation to achieve organizational readiness.

During the first educational track of the day, attendees will explore why third-party management is critical for robust cyber resilience with speaker Nagaswaran Kumaresan, Ph.D., CISSP, CISA, CIA, CGMA, CRISC, Vice President of the London Metal Exchange. Through an interactive discussion of emerging security and governance challenges, this session will explore the importance of end-to-end visibility and effective management in third-party governance.  

Also in the first track, Filip Chyla, CCSP, GSTRT, Cybersecurity Shepherd at Xebia, will empower attendees to Identify the challenges of cloud-native applications. Acknowledging the cloud can be tricky to navigate because of its many components and potential obstacles, this session will explore the strategies cybersecurity professionals can use to tackle challenges.

Next in the lineup, an ISC2 member panel will consider artificial intelligence from a variety of security perspectives. As AI becomes mission-critical technology, it will be inevitably targeted by malicious actors. The experts will explore how attacks on AI systems are likely to occur and what cybersecurity professionals should be doing in defense. Moderated by Jon France, CISSP, CISO of ISC2, the panel will include Brent Dawson, CISSP, Enterprise Architect at Digital Ducttape Ltd., and Stephen Cobb, CISSP at Researcher.

An Afternoon of Cyber Learning

Following lunch and time for browsing the exhibits, track two will feature two concurrent sessions. In one, Adam Bateman, Co-founder and CEO of Push Security, will lead the discussion on securing employee-adopted SaaS apps. Knowing that employees often sign up for the apps, skipping the usual security checks and procedures, this session will look at the risks to modern enterprise and how to approach security in the age of self-service. 

In the second track two session, Ashley Nurcombe, Senior Cyber Security Consultant at Corelight, will get the conversation started about cloud network monitoring and explore with the group whether it’s still relevant in security operations. The discussion will look at the growth of encryption, digital transformation from non-IP to IP networks, Zero Trust architectures and secure access service edge (SASE).

Rounding out the day, in the first of two panel discussions, security executives will share their insights on leadership, cloud security and governance, risk and compliance. Moderated by Ed Parsons, CISSP, UK and Europe Director, ISC2, the panel will include Alister Shepherd, CISO of the Financial Conduct Authority; Bridget Kenyon, CISSP, CISM, CISO of Shared Services Connected Ltd.; Dave Cartright, CISSP, Head of Technology Operations and Risk/ Chief Information Security Officer at Santander International; and a senior representative from the National Cyber Security Centre.

The ISC2 Insights Panel will conclude the day’s sessions as senior leadership and board members take questions about the future of the association, industry trends and the cybersecurity landscape, both regionally and globally — and what it all means for ISC2 and the ways it supports members. Clar Rosso, CEO of ISC2, will be joined by Laurie-Anne Bourdain, CISSP, Data Protection Officer of Isabel Group and Secretary of the ISC2 Board of Directors and Jon France, CISSP, CISO of ISC2. Ed Parsons, CISSP, UK & Europe Director of ISC2 will moderate the discussion.
