44CON Cyber Security 2016 Cancelled

Unfortunately we’ve had some problems with the 44CON Cyber Security event that we just couldn’t overcome. Some of these issues were small, like crew numbers, while others such as unexpected price hikes for us were simply insurmountable without breaking the cost model. Furthermore, the presence of so many great events in the UK from BSides London and Manchester, through to Securitay meant that a separate event was becoming harder to justify in an already busy calendar.

When we started 44CON Cyber Security last year, we set out to create an exhibition for the Infosec community without the infosuck. We wanted to create an event that was free (or at least super cheap), that was different to 44CON London but had its spirit (if not its Gin) and a place where people more involved in end-user business security functions could come together without the fear of heavy-handed barcode scanning. We believe we mostly succeeded, but only as a result of the enormous effort our crew of volunteers put in and Adrian’s hard work.

Unfortunately this year both Adrian and Steve have had less time to work on 44CON Cyber Security, and with fewer volunteers able to plug the gaps, we felt that if we couldn’t deliver an event on par with last year that perhaps it would be better to focus on making 44CON London an even better event, which is what we’re going to do.

We’ll be in touch with everyone with a ticket for 44CON Cyber Security to let them know that it’s not going ahead, and to give them the option of a full refund or discounted entry to 44CON London, and of course to apologise for any inconvenience. But it’s not all bad news…

Traditionally, 44CON London has had an Infosec track and a technical track. Last year had no Infosec track because of 44CON Cyber Security. This year, the Infosec track will be back with a vengeance.

It’s going to be awesome.

If you have any questions, please email 44con@44con.com, and we’ll do our best.

Adrian & Steve

44CON Cyber Security F-Secure After Party

We know how you all like a drink or two and, with that in mind, 44CON are delighted to announce F-Secure will be sponsoring the bar and Gin O’Clock at this year’s 44CON Cyber Security.

We are sure most of you have heard of Edward Snowden. Well, it’s been almost two years since he blew the whistle on the US and Britain’s spying programmes, bringing the issue of mass surveillance to the fore.

Last year, F-Secure supported the launch of the Edward Snowden Oscar-winning documentary CITIZENFOUR. To celebrate the success of the film and the hard work of Britain’s privacy advocates, F-Secure will be hosting an after party. Taking place straight after Gin O’Clock, the party will continue on until 21:30, and will include a number of VIP guests including Ewen MacAskill (of The Guardian and CITIZENFOUR) and Jess Search (of film-backer Britdoc). F-Secure’s chief research officer Mikko Hypponen will also be conducting a short Q&A during the evening. All of our sponsors and attendees are invited to join in the celebrations.

F-Secure is an online security and privacy company trusted by millions of users worldwide. F-Secure is a pioneer in providing security as a service to SMBs, as well as one of the first to introduce mobile security to the market.
