I’ll be there, not every day as I will be with my daughter. However I will be speaking on the Wednesday “Identity, Reputation & Privacy in the Organisational Context” 🙂

Looking forward to it and can’t wait to meet other alumni. The 3 day programme is here.

I don’t have many speaking engagements this year with a beautiful baby daughter to be distracted with 🙂 One I did have was last week at BCS Guildford in the U.K., that had to be cancelled unfortunately due to my flight being cancelled on preceding day. So my apologies to those that were planning to be there! My visit will be rescheduled for later this year.

However my next engagement in the U.K. will be at the beginning of July at the Royal Holloway Alumni Reunion Conference. I look forward to the networking with my esteemed RHUL colleagues. It will be a fun few days and I hope those of you that are visitors to Virtual Shadows blog are able to be there, there is a lot of catching up to do, and beers/wine to consume 😛

The programme for the event can be found here.

I’ve not been very active with speaking engagements this year, however there is one coming up during the last week of June at W-Tech. This is a womens’ networking event, mainly for women working in IT. It will be a real pleasure to be speaking here, and I do look forward to meeting all you fine ladies that happen to be attending 🙂

This week I was at a reunion held at the Royal Holloway University of London (RHUL) for the Information Security Group, and it was so cool! I met a whole load of security professionals over and above those that I had already had the pleasure of studying alongside with on the distance learning programme. I also had the pleasure of speaking on the Wednesday, I spoke about privacy and how perceptions are changing and why.

If any of you guys I met at this conference read this post, I would like to thank you for being there. It really was a pleasure to meet you all!

Following my visit to INFOSec in April I found an interesting article on what Bruce Schneier talked about when he spoke about security theatre.

Hi me again. Just thinking that I hadn’t shared with you that I have another speaking engagement lined up in mid-March at the HP Technology@Work 2008 in Barcelona. I will be speaking about Information Security Services Management (ISSM) Reference Model. I hope to see you there if you are lucky enough to be coming!

I’m going to be presenting at HP’s Software Universe in Barcelona end of November. I will be talking about HP’s ISSM framework for Information Security Management. (ISSM stands for Information Security Systems Management.) This is a new concept developed of which I am part of the team in formalizing -just as we did with ITIL using ITSM- the process of information security management. So see you there, if are planning to come. Should be fun!
