Security Matters Forums
InTech Forums' regular 'Security Matters' speaker events expose, explore and examine the escalating challenges facing the insurance industry's IT systems, processes and protections, as they face internal misuse and external attack. The rapid technology developments that have provided new data-handling and process efficiencies have also brought unprecedented threats: 'Security Matters' reviews the real-world experiences of insurance practitioners and previews the solutions available to CIOs and senior IT management within the Lloyd's and London insurance market.
Our raison d'être
“The London Market has been undergoing and continues to undergo radical change in its practices, processes and technologies. IT change is rarely easy, for anybody, but especially so in a business sector that is steeped in over 350 years of heritage and tradition. Practitioners from this Market involved in the IT and operational change process will know only too well what a difficult task they face on a daily basis.
The overriding aim of the Security Matters forums is to inform, engage, educate and encourage professional interchange of concepts, ideas and practices, by way of presentations and interactive discussions led by respected academics, authors and sector professionals from the world of IT security, and commercial operations. The hope is that these forums will arm those responsible for business improvement and change with new tools, ideas, concepts and best practice.”
When we talk about ‘data security’ what do we actually mean?
"The practice of defending information from unauthorised access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, perusal, inspection, recording or destruction – so only those with a legitimate need to access it can do so. Data security means protecting data, such as a database, from destructive forces and from the unwanted actions of unauthorised users.”
What are the costs of attending?
Security Matters forums and their companion round table “drill-down” breakfast briefings are free-to-attend-events.
Who should attend?
Management, IT professionals, security officers, finance heads, underwriters, brokers, business process planners, system architects, legal, regulatory and compliance executives and business analysts, these events are proving to be a valuable source of information and reference.
What's in it for me?
Knowledge, education, opinions, questions and panel discussions and social interaction.
Where and when are the forums held?
Security Matters Forums take place quarterly, usually in the prestigious, oak-panelled Lloyd's Library, which is the meeting place of the community and located at the landmark Lloyd's building in Lime Street, London EC3. For the convenience of delegates, Forums are convened as 'breakfast time briefings' (8.30-10.00) or 'lunch time forums' (12.00 – 14.00) and include an introduction; presentation by experts in the field; and a lively Q&A session, in all, extending to a focused and demanding 90-minutes.
The follow-up 75-minute Security Matters Companion Roundtable “drill-down” briefing sessions are held either in the Lloyd's Building or other prime City/EC3 locations.
