In March 2017 I visited Hannover in Germany for the Security BSides conference. My first Bsides. I had the opportunity to present one of my favourite subjects, how security can help business grow. The venue was nice, and the presentations were very interesting and some of them eye-opening. Overall I really enjoyed the conference; the setup and organisation was very good and all the participants were friendly. That helped having interesting discussions; always useful if you are eager to learn more things and see other peoples’ perspectives.
In October of 2016 I travelled to Dublin in Ireland, to present at the two-day event organized by (ISC)2. I took advantage of the pre-congress workshops which were eye - opening in many aspects. The event, (ISC2) Security Congress EMEA 2016, titled “Advancing Security Leaders” took place at the Croke Park Stadium and it was a huge success.
In 2016 I was lucky enough to be able to present at the (ISC)2 SecureNetherlands event in Amsterdam titled “Securing the Virtual Organization”. The event had a high number of attendants, more than I expected. The weather was wonderful, and the event was taking place at the Greenest building in the world, the Edge where Deloitte is placed.
