Information security is a hot topic right now, as businesses are becoming more aware of the challenges of protecting vital systems and data.

Countering these challenges is high on the agenda at InfoSecurity Europe 2016, which we were pleased to exhibit at this week.

The event is Europe’s leading information security event, with over 315 exhibitors showcasing products and services to 12,000 visitors.

We attended the event with Invest Northern Ireland and a host of other great businesses from Northern Ireland.

We enjoyed discussing the benefits of our unique ECG biometric authentication in securing company devices, data and apps.

There were several other key trends which came out of the event.

CBRonline provides a great write-up that outlines some of the key themes, one being ransomware.

The Ransomware Threat

Ransomware is increasingly becoming an issue for businesses as employees continue to use personal devices in work, without the stringent security protocols in place usually found in company-issue devices.

The feeling from the event seems to be that paying ransoms to access encrypted data needs to be discouraged and a more proactive response is required.

Protecting the IoT

Another interesting perspective came from technologist and security writer Bruce Schneier, who warned that the IoT could be the next area of cyber risk, as more and more enterprise and national level devices and systems become interconnected:

If we cannot secure complex systems we can’t build a world where everything is connected and computerized.
