John Craddock Belfast Event: Building End-to-End Infrastructure Security

I'm delighted to announce that I'm bringing John Craddock and Sally Storey to Belfast to host an event on End-to-End Infrastructure Security on June 27th in the Water Front Hall.

Like many IT professionals, you’ve probably attended security seminars and sessions over the years and gained an appreciation of the various security technologies available. But when, where and how these technologies can and should be leveraged can often be confusing.


Infrastructure security is frequently only considered once server roles and network connectivity has been implemented, a problem made worse by inadequate training.  When security technologies are not deployed until late in a project, the result can be poor implementation, weak documentation and compliance testing.
