HIGHLIGHTS FROM DAY THREE OF INFOSECURITY EUROPE 2022-01

On the third and final day of Infosecurity Europe 2022 Jenny Radcliffe became the latest industry luminary to be inducted into the Infosecurity Hall of Fame. Known as ‘The People Hacker’, Jenny is founder and director of Human Factor Security, which helps organisations address the human element of cybersecurity; often considered the weakest link. Jenny then delivered the Infosecurity Hall of Fame Annual Lecture 2022 – Facta Non Verba – Six Life Lessons from a Social Engineer – in which she reflected on a lifetime of social engineering and physical infiltration work, and shared her thoughts on how her profession, and the industry as a whole, might continue into the future. Watch a video interview with Jenny here.

Audience members in the Keynote Theatre were kept on the edge of their seats by the opening presentation, delivered by Suzanne Williams, International Hostage and Kidnap Negotiation Expert. In her session, Lessons Learnt From the World of Hostage Negotiation, she shared her unique perspectives on remaining resilient in difficult situations, decision making under pressure, calculated risk taking, and the critical role of humans in advanced systems. Watch a video interview with Suzanne here.

A presentation from the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) – Threat Brief: Hacks and Adversaries Unveiled – also drew a large crowd, keen to hear about the key threats and issues the organisation has encountered as it seeks to make the UK the safest place to live and work online.

The conference programme closed with a forward-looking panel discussion, Next Generation, Next Challenges, New Opportunities, featuring Eleanor Dallaway of Infosecurity Magazine, Dr Sanjana Mehta of ISC², Marc Avery of the Cyber Chain Alliance, and Jonathan Kidd from Computershare. The panel explored whether the industry has what it takes to prepare for the challenges and opportunities of the coming decade.

Footfall was high in the exhibition’s two specialist showcase areas. In the Innovation Showcase visitors came to meet the newly-crowned winner of the DCMS UK’s Most Innovative Cyber SME Competition – TryHackMe – along with its fellow 13 finalists. There were also presentations from Scytale, eShard, Quarkslab, Island, Algosec Europe, Ermetic, Hunters, Lookout, and IONOS Cloud.

In the Technology Showcase visitors were busy discovering the latest products, services and solutions. They also had the chance to learn about solving technical problems ranging from optimising governance and data security in Microsoft365 to battling endpoint cybercrime, courtesy of experts from Orca Security, Hornetsecurity, Google Cloud, Semperis, Allot, ManageEngine, Jamf, Quest, and archTIS.

Nicole Mills, Exhibition Director at Infosecurity Group, says: “The theme we selected for Infosecurity Europe 2022 was ‘Stronger Together’, and we’ve seen this philosophy brought to life countless time over the last three days. The cybersecurity industry must become more collaborative in its efforts to keep society safe and secure, and our visitors grasped every opportunity to do just that – from networking events to roundtable discussions, and from on-stand meetings to informal offsite get-togethers. A quarter century on from the first event, Infosecurity Europe continues to play a vital role in bringing the infosec community together to do business, exchange knowledge, ideas and experiences, and learn from each other.”

“Impact is an ideal partner for our Policygenius Pro platform,” Jennifer Fitzgerald, CEO and co-founder of Policygenius, said. “They’re an innovative FMO that experiences the exact pain point that Policygenius Pro is designed to solve: helping financial advisors and independent agents provide essential term life coverage for their clients, without the complexities and time-consuming process. The speed with which Impact has implemented Policygenius Pro and driven adoption shows how committed they are to better serving their advisory network and end clients.”

To date, Policygenius Pro has helped partners cut placement times by half, on average, and reduced the average time an advisor spends on an application from 2.5 hours to 15-20 minutes.

“This isn’t just a way for us to offload term life – we expect Policygenius Pro to help us more than double our term production,” Eschrich said. “Simply by allowing partners to save so much time managing the logistics of getting their clients covered, they’ll be able to focus on higher-value work and increase their overall profitability. We now feel we’re in a position to make term life a profit center rather than a cost center.”
