After months of planning, Infosec is nearly here. The three-day event, taking place on 28-30 April in London, is the largest security conference in Europe and attracts more than 12,000 visitors and 300 journalists. We've seen several London-area trade shows cancelled recently in the wake of slashed marketing spend, yet Infosec organisers have moved the show to a bigger conference hall this year--Earls Court--and expect to break record numbers for attendance.
Despite new research from both Forrester and Gartner that predicts a grim year for global IT spending, the security industry shows fewer signs of stress than, say, retail tech. Infosec is still moving full steam ahead and the mood at the show is anticipated to be bouyant and focussed.
Over the next few weeks, in the Security PR blog, Schwartz London will be taking a look at some of the trends and issues we expect will be top of mind at Infosec this year, from mobile computing to cloud security to social media phishing. Then we'll give reports from the show floor on the people we meet, the sessions we watch and the parties we attend. Stay tuned!Tags: infosec 2009
