FST: LiVE and kicking
Written by Sophie Baker
Financial Sector Technology’s (FST) annual conference is just two weeks away, and we’re all getting a bit excited (and nervous) here at FST HQ.
We have an exclusive set of speakers lined up for you, covering a range of topics in our multi-stream event: IT Security boasts presentations from the two extremes of the scale – a representative from the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA), and a hacker; while those of you leaning towards the Data, Storage and Cloud side will hear from the European Director at the PCI Security Standards Council and the Director of the Business Continuity Institute (BCI).
While I am looking forward to each topic, I’m particularly looking forward to the presentation from Andy Baker, deputy director at SOCA, and am planning on feeding my newfound interest in the cloud by dropping into Raj Samani, EMEA Strategy Advisor, Cloud Security Alliance’s (CSA) presentation in the IT Security stream.
On the Data, Storage and Cloud side, I’m looking forward to the session on Green IT from Dai Davis, partner at Brooke North LLP, who will update you on the big environmental issues affecting IT departments in financial institutions.
If last year’s conference is anything to go by, I’m sure you’ll find plenty of interesting talks at the event. But please remember to drop in on the Expo and have a look around at the stands. We’ll have a few break-out sessions where you can pick up a coffee, network and have a talk with our sponsors.
I look forward to meeting you on 31st March at FST LiVE – come armed with your tricky questions for our experts to answer, and please come and say hello over a coffee, 3-course lunch or a glass of wine at the drinks reception!
The event is free to attend for members of financial institutions – please contact Hayley.firstname.lastname@example.org for details, or book through our website.
