Infosec is back, bigger and bolder. The mood at the show is expected to be buoyant. The organisers are saying that this year promises more: more space, more content, more exhibitors at Earls Court.

Taking place on 28-30 April in London, Infosec is the largest security conference in Europe and attracts more than 12,000 visitors and 300 journalists.

Apart from the business seminars and multiple vendors exhibiting, this year also features a number of technical track seminars as well as the annual Hackers Panel – participants aren’t disclosed until the day of the event of course. (would love to attend this!)

New sessions this year include the Security Expert Forum with keynote sessions as well as interactive security cafes, essentially 1/2-day workshops, focusing on hot industry topics like: social engineering, web 2.0 threats, data loss and fraud/espionage.

As CRN pointed out this week, last year’s show marked the absence of some top names, including Symantec, Blue Coat and Trend Micro. This year, it looks like many bigger players have returned. I’m looking forward to meeting up with our journalist friends and catching up on what is hot in the world of e-crime prevention and detection.
