IP EXPO spotlights security with new dedicated IT security focus Wednesday 29 June 2011 PDF Print IP EXPO spotlights security with new dedicated IT security focus Infosecurity and other IT professionals have a new date to add to their diaries: SECURITY 11, 19th – 20th October, London’s Earls Court 2 London, UK – 29th June 2011 – The UK’s end-to-end infrastructure show, IP EXPO, has added a new dedicated focus: SECURITY 11, which will cover IT security in a wider computing context. SECURITY 11 will cover information security alongside exhibitors from the worlds of cloud computing, storage, wireless, virtualization and IP networking. Attendees can explore the impact security has on developing IT infrastructure and discuss the latest tools and procedures being developed to meet the security challenges posed by these disparate—yet interconnected—technology areas. “We developed SECURITY 11 because delegates at last year’s IP EXPO told us security was intrinsically linked to other decisions they would be making about their IT infrastructures that year,” explained Giles Mallon, Commercial Director at Imago Techmedia, the event organiser. “According to Gartner’s CIO Agenda survey, improving business continuity, risk and security is one of the top ten business strategies for CIOs this year. However, security is only one part of a broader conversation about how infrastructure can support an agile business. These are some of the issues we’ll be exploring this year at IP EXPO and SECURITY 11.” Imago Techmedia has made some other exciting changes to the IP EXPO programme this year.
