Three years after my last appearance in a conference due to COVID-19 lockdowns, I was invited to present to the 9th Information Security Conference in Greece.

CyberCentral 2019

On April 4th and 5th I had the honour to participate in the 2019 CyberCentral Summit in Prague. A conference brilliantly organized by Michaela Stranovska and Alexander Nevski of EBCG. It is the first big conference I attend in Prague although this is the city I live in the last five years!!!

The conference was nicely balanced. The content included some very technical presentations such as Milan Pikula's presentation about the lack of security in IoT and Solomon Sonya's "Securing the perimeter - one IDS at a time".

I'm invited in the Geneva Information Security Day 2018 to participate in a panel in which we will discuss myths and reality around artificial intelligence and machine learning. You may request to join us if you are interested in either this subject, or GDPR or GRC strategy on a IOT and Cloud era. Respected colleagues will share their knowledge and experience and I personally cannot wait to discuss and engage in open discussions around all these topics.

Bsides Hannover 2017

In March 2017 I visited Hannover in Germany for the Security BSides conference. My first Bsides. I had the opportunity to present one of my favourite subjects, how security can help business grow. The venue was nice, and the presentations were very interesting and some of them eye-opening. Overall I really enjoyed the conference; the setup and organisation was very good and all the participants were friendly. That helped having interesting discussions; always useful if you are eager to learn more things and see other peoples' perspectives.

Mobile Application Infrastructure Security

In October of 2016 I travelled to Dublin in Ireland, to present at the two-day event organized by (ISC)2. I took advantage of the pre-congress workshops which were eye - opening in many aspects. The event, (ISC2) Security Congress EMEA 2016, titled "Advancing Security Leaders" took place at the Croke Park Stadium and it was a huge success.

Infomation Security as Business Enabler

In 2016 I was lucky enough to be able to present at the (ISC)2 SecureNetherlands event in Amsterdam titled "Securing the Virtual Organization". The event had a high number of attendants, more than I expected. The weather was wonderful, and the event was taking place at the Greenest building in the world, the Edge where Deloitte is placed.
