Upcoming RANT Forum to focus on communication and collaboration

Upcoming RANT Forum to focus on communication and collaboration

Last month’s RANT Forum was one of the best attended so far, and saw Sarb Sembhi, director of IncomingThought, present on EU Data Protection Regulation.

This month’s event will be held at The Counting House, London on Wednesday August 28th 2013 and is set to be just as interesting, with a new speaker and an engaging topic.

Darren Hodder, vice-president of cyber fraud intelligence at the Centre for Strategic Cyberspace & Security Science, will give a talk about just how important the crossover between information security and anti-fraud is, entitled ‘Different Disciplines, Same Goals: Where is the Communication & Collaboration?’.

Mr Hodder has attended RANT previously and was surprised to find he did not know many of the attendees personally, especially considering he is so well connected and spoken at numerous industry events.

“Perhaps we need to get better at communication, rather ironic since our disciplines facilitate global communication on an unprecedented scale! In order to be better understood by the board we need to get back to what is at the heart of all the problems we are trying to solve and in my view it is all about people.”

He believes IT security professionals can get so caught up in the latest technical trends and challenges that they may forget there is always a human behind these threats and that technology is simply a facilitator for age-old crimes and scams.

Mr Hodder wants IT professionals to get to know one another better in order to reach their overall goals more effectively.

RANT is certainly the perfect location for this subject as the event encourages interaction and engagement by making the whole thing a little less formal.

The idea of the event  is to put people at ease so that key issues can really be explored in an open forum. It gives a great opportunity for people to network and get to know each other, something Mr Hodder would like to see more of in the coming months.

There are many threats facing the IT security industry and many of these will be discussed at the next RANT Forum on August 28th.
