Infosecurity Europe 2024, held at ExCeL London, brought together the brightest minds in cybersecurity. This year’s event was a powerhouse of infosec knowledge and networking, offering pivotal insights into how to navigate the present and protect the future of the sector.

Here’s a rundown of some of the highlights that made this year's Infosecurity Europe unforgettable for everyone who attended.

Keynote Speakers

Henry Ajder, a leading authority in generative AI, delivered a keynote that captivated the audience from the outset. His insights into the future of AI and its implications for cybersecurity were both enlightening and thought-provoking. Ajder's ability to break down complex AI concepts into understandable terms helped professionals grasp both the risks and rewards of this rapidly evolving technology.

Adding a unique twist to the lineup, Jake Humphrey and Damian Hughes, renowned for their High Performance Podcast, shared their expertise on resilience and crisis management. Their session was packed with practical tips that cybersecurity professionals can apply to enhance their strategic thinking and operational effectiveness, gleaned from top tech leaders the dynamic duo have interviewed on their podcast.

Finally, Claire Williams, celebrated for her leadership in Formula 1, brought a fresh perspective on leadership dynamics and high-pressure decision-making. Her talk resonated strongly with attendees, emphasising the importance of building a stable team when maintaining a robust cybersecurity posture.

Women in Cybersecurity

This year’s Women in Cybersecurity event was a resounding success. Held on the Keynote Stage, the session, hosted by Infosecurity Magazine, highlighted the contributions of women in the industry. Keynote Speaker Stephanie Hare captured the audience’s imagination with her compelling speech, inspiring women to continue breaking down barriers in cybersecurity. This was followed by an unmissable panel discussion, hosted by Infosecurity Magazine Editor, Beth Maundrill, with some of information security’s most influential women.

Thank you to all the wonderful attendees, our sponsors Akamai FLAME and 1Password, and partners ISC2, ISACA, Wicys & LT Harper, for making the event such a hit. Diversity and inclusion are a key part of closing the cyber skills gap, and Infosecurity Europe is proud to play a small part in helping with that journey.
