ISSA-UK Dragon's Den

Security in the Spotlight

HMS President, River Thames

London, United Kingdom

Thursday 10th July, 2014



(5 CPEs) 

In the Dragon's Den event, ten security software/solution vendors battle it out for the best Speaker and best Product prizes, as voted by the audience. We offer each vendor a 10 minute speaking pitch to tell us what makes their product the best, in a fast-paced and lively environment.  This unique format enables delegates to understand existing and emerging technologies on the market, and each Dragon will have a stand so you can find out more about their solutions.

After hours, we will enjoy a networking drinks reception on deck and sample the British weather at it's finest!
