4:00 – Registration and refreshments

4.30 – ISSA-UK Annual General Meeting

As a not-for-profit association governed by bye-laws, this is our only annual compliance duty – there's no security audit, no pen test, no company returns, just a mandatory Annual General Meetings where the board will be available to discuss what they've been doing and members can question what they've not been doing.  This part is limited to members only, but feel free to turn up from 4, grab a coffee, network with other non-members (I should probably hint at something there!), and we'll be done as soon as we can.

5.00 –  Main event – Introduction – Tim Holman, ISSA-UK President

5.10  – Daniel Schatz, Director, Threat and Vulnerability Management, Thomson Reuters

Why threat predictions can help (but we still struggle to change)…

Daniel is currently working as Director of Threat & Vulnerability Management for Thomson Reuters in London/UK. He is a member of the International Systems Security Association (ISSA-UK) and holds several qualifications including CISSP, CISM, CEH, ISO27001 LA/LI and MSc Information Security & Computer Forensics. Daniel has been one of the organisers of the popular BSidesLondon security conference before he stepped down in 2013. Alongside the day job his focus is on pursuing his Professional Doctor in Information Security at the University of East London.

Daniel's presentation investigates the cyber security threat landscape 2013 based on some publicly reported data breach events and examines how security predictions from previous years may have assisted in the preparation for such events. From there we'll take a brief look at the market value impact of these events before moving on to explore if there are better ways to drive (security) change in organisations than relying on fear, uncertainty and doubt.

5.40 – Networking break
