The annual Infosec Europe IT security exhibition and conference, every one of which which has been attended by London 2600 people over the years, is on again , this time at Earls Court rather than Olympia.
Earls Court Exhibition Centre
Tuesday 28th April: 9.30 - 17:30
Wednesday 29th April: 9.30 - 17:30
Thursday 30th April: 9.30 - 16.00
The opening Keynote Address on Tuesday morning is due to be by, wait for it, one of the architects of the UK police / database / surveillance state, the Rt. Hon. David Blunkett MP (twice disgraced as a Cabinet Minister) , who was temporarily on the payroll of Canadian encryption firm Entrust, and whose undeclared investments in a DNA fingerprinting laboratory led to one of his resignations from the Cabinet.
The Hackers Panel, is, as usual, on Thursday afternoon
As usual , there will probably be more freebie swag (but not necessarily more scantily clad booth bunnies) at the neighbouring Service Desk & IT Support Show 2009, (only Tuesday: 9.30-17.00 and Wednesday: 9.30-17.00) which you should also probably be able to visit.
