Just back from my hols and it’s heartening to see that whilst I’ve been away so many great movers and shakers in the IT security world have signed up to get involved in Security Serious Week in October. So many of the CISO community have already committed their time for free to offer seminars and webinars on a host of great subjects including Unilever, BT, Canon, Lloyds Bank, HSBC, GSK, Publicis Groupe, Markit, Willis and The Economist to name but a few! Our loyal analysts including Ovum, Quocirca and IDC are on board and yesterday I was delighted that the Department for Culture, Media and Sports have agreed to get stuck in with events during the week and rally other Government departments to do so too – way to go! The week should be incredibly insightful to any organisation wishing to become more security savvy! So if you’re an IT security specialist or IT security organisation that wishes to impart your pearls of wisdom to other businesses to make them more Security Serious then why not organise a webinar or seminar. We’ll promote it for you on www.itsecurityguru.org and www.securityserious.com. We’ve also got loads of companies participating in the press photocall at 12 noon on 26th October outside the Tower of London (find out more at www.securityserious.com) – where everyone will have a banner with their logo on it to show the world they’re “Taking Security Seriously”. By participating in the day not only will you be counted as a company that’s Security Serious but it’ll be a great networking event as we’re all going to meet in the pub after the photocall – CISOs, analysts, press, vendors and other IT security professionals. Hopefully, by getting together new contacts will be made and we can work together to make UK Plc a safer place to do trade Online! If you want to brainstorm how you can get involved then email me Yvonne@eskenzipr.com!
