City University London in spotlight at Infosecurity Europe 2012
City's Centre for Software Reliability and Centre for Cyber Security Sciences received heightened visibility at this year's Infosecurity Europe exhibition, with high levels of footfall and enquiries to the attractive CSR booth. Infosecurity Europe took place at Earl's Court from April 23 to 26.
The annual Infosecurity Europe exhibition is Europe's premier information security event, enabling the world's major information security suppliers to showcase a comprehensive range of products and services. The event also allows security professionals such as chief information security officers, as well as business managers, to select the most appropriate solutions for managing risks to their company's assets and reputation.
According to Kevin Jones, Professor of Dependability and Security: "This is our third year at Infosecurity Europe. We have been attending this important security industry exhibition, precisely because it is one of the key events for information security professionals and a good place to increase awareness of our course offering."
One of the important highlights of City's participation at the exhibition was Professor Jones' interview with Deputy Editor of Infosecurity magazine, Drew Amorosi, on the role of City University London in addressing the skills gap in the cyber security arena.
Underscoring City's vital role in the provision of information security education, Professor Jones says: "We had more than 250 people come by the booth for discussions of one form or another, including many enquiries about course offerings. A key fact is that many of them were specifically looking for the MSc. in Information Security and Risk (MISR) programme and were a good match for our intake criteria."
