Join us at ITWeb’s Security Summit

ITWeb’s Security Summit is taking place at the Sandton Convention Centre this year between 7 and 9 May, and we hope you’ll be joining us there.

Telspace Systems has been involved with this event almost since its inception in 2005. Initially, we presented talks on topics such as Bluetooth Hacking to the local and international delegates, and more recently, we've been involved as sponsors and exhibitors.

A few years ago, as some of you might remember, we were involved in a very successful charity drive for renowned computer security expert Johnny Long’s (j0hnnyhax) Hackers For Charity initiative.

Whatever our involvement, though, one thing has stayed the same - Telspace Systems always has a lot of fun at ITWeb’s Security Summits. Not only that, but we find the event to be a great place for us to keep up-to-date with the local IT security community and to get in touch with our customers face-to-face. It also always gives us the opportunity to discuss industry issues and solutions in-depth, which helps us better figure out what our clients want from us on a service level.

According to the website, at ITWeb’s eighth annual Security Summit, “We take a stand, and assert that while some battles have been lost, we need not lose the war. With informed strategy, and effective tactics, as well as a better understanding of the enemy, we may yet turn the tide of the growing cyber security threat.”

This year’s international keynote speaker will be Misha Glenny, investigative journalist and leading expert on cybercrime and on global mafia networks, and he will be contextualising the current information security challenges faced by organisations across the globe.

Other speakers include: Richard Bejtlich, chief security officer at MANDIANT; Adam Ely, founder and chief operations officer of Bluebox; Runa Sandvik, developer, security researcher, and translation co-ordinator, at The Tor Project; Ben Gatti, independent software hacker; and Robert Weiss, founder of Password Crackers.

The event will not only showcase expert insights, but will also feature interactive workshops, valuable networking opportunities, sought-after SANS training, and practical solutions.

With less than a week to go, we hope you’ve registered and are gearing up to attend this top-level local event. But most importantly, we hope you are as excited as we are!  

Come visit us at Stand 2, it would be great to catch up with you all!
