Theale, Reading, UK, 8th October 2012. Integralis, a global provider of IT Security and Information Risk Management solutions, is pleased to announce that former Director General of MI5 and best-selling author, Dame Stella Rimington, has been confirmed as the keynote speaker at Integralis Security World 2012. The one day conference will discuss the prevention, diagnosis and cure required to deal with current and future IT security issues at The Royal College of Physicians, London, on Tuesday 16th October 2012.
At Integralis Security World UK 2012, Dame Stella will speak about her life and career at MI5. She will highlight the changes which were made as a result of the Government's new policy of Open-ness and how these were implemented within an organisation that was, by its very definition, secretive.
Also joining Integralis at the event are IT security experts, solution providers and their customers, representing the cutting edge of innovation in IT security. They will share their experiences and expertise through customer case study presentations, keynote speakers, panel debates and small, relevant discussion groups split into business, technical and security strategy streams, to deliberate on a range of strategic and technical information security topics. These include the evolution of DDos attacks, the implications of IPV6, the risks of social engineering, cyber threats and securing the mobile workforce.
The event is aimed at Chief Information Security Officers, Senior Executives responsible for security and Senior Security Strategists. Confirmed sponsors and participants include F5, Juniper Networks, Checkpoint Software Technologies, RSA, Arbor Networks, Q1 Labs, Tufin, Websense, Fortinet, Sourcefire, NTT Communications, Log Rhythmn, Algosec and BlueCoat.

About Dame Stella Rimmington:

In the late 1980’s she was in charge of the Service’s work against International and Irish terrorism. Stella Rimington pursued a policy of greater openness at MI5, seeking to explain to the public what the Service was and the extent of its responsibilities.
