London to host security conference

Excel London is to host the annual RSA Conference Europe, a leading information security conference, for the next three years. It is the first time London has been chosen as a location for the conference, expected this year to draw 1,500 – 1,800 international delegates. Organisers have decided to base the conference at Excel London for the next three years, to capitalise on London being the home to the European headquarters of 33% of the Fortune Global 500 and the base for 25% of Europe’s software security companies. RSA Conference Europe manager Linda Lynch said: "Excel London was the perfect choice for RSA Conference Europe as it has the capacity, facilities, location, transport links and flexibility to ensure that RSA Conference Europe is a leading security industry event not only for 2007 but over the next three years." This year, more than 60 sessions of knowledge sharing, including breakout sessions and tutorials will be on offer at the conference, being held on 22-24 October. The latest security products, technology and solutions will be showcased by more 40 vendors. The conference will offer networking opportunities and global authority on fraud and identity theft Frank Abagnale is to deliver a keynote speech. The event is aimed at the information security professions and most delegates are expected to come from the financial services, Government, telecommunications, security services, software development and education, academia and research sectors. Excel London conference and events division managing director Vanessa Cotton, said: "We are delighted that RSA Conference Europe has chosen London and our venue for this highly important event. This is a real flagship event for London and we’ll be working extremely hard over the next three years to ensure its success."
