IDG Security Day: Sydney infosec leaders

​Welcome to 2017 IDG Security Day. This was one of nine event running on the 21st June right across the world.

  • Welcome to 2017 IDG Security Day. This is one of nine events running today right across the world. And, because of the magic of time differences and the international date line we are the first IDG Security Day event running. As it's the sumer solstice in the Northern hemisphere, it's also the longest day so it makes sense to fill it with as much infosec goodness as we possibly can. As well as Sydney right now, there are IDG Security Day events running in Amsterdam, Frankfurt, London, Madrid, Mumbai, Paris, Stockholm, and Washington, DC making this a truly global event. That also means that after you get home from here later today, you can tune in to the events in the other eight cities and hear from experts from across the globe. Our three partners today are Mimecast, Sophos and Dark Trace.
