Your perpetual edge over protection

Identity needs to be treated as the cornerstone of all security; it provides the foundation for all application access, data access, technical controls and policy – and should take centre stage in your cyber strategy.

Our inaugural Cyber Forum taking place on Wednesday 1st May will focus on identity solutions and explore the threats and opportunities facing businesses.

Guest Speakers

We are delighted to be joined by some leading industry experts who will share their insights, knowledge and expertise with our audience.

Paul Risk CTO & Co-Founder, Ignition Technology
Paul specialises in the discovery and adoption of innovative, market-leading, next-generation IT security and networking solutions. Paul’s presentation will explore and demystify many of the ‘3 letter acronyms’ that exist in the security landscape and explain the benefits and relevance of them: IAM, PAM, SSO, MFA, IGA.

Neil Kell, Director of Evolve Secure Solutions
One of the UK’s leading security advisors, Neil operates at Board level as a strategic security resource for several government and commercial sector customers.
