In recent years the annual Infosecurity Europe conference has been accused of being too tech heavy. And while that is still certainly the case on the main floor, this year there was a fresh approach to holding such a huge and overwhelming event with a host of interesting talks, panel discussions and presentations that focused on the challenges and pain points, and future ideas rather than just heavy going marketplace.

You know the drill. An email pops into your account from “HMRC”, your bank, Amazon’s “CustomerCare” or another familiar company. The sender format is identical to something you would associate with such recognisable organisations, but you smell a rat. Yep, it’s another phishing scam waiting for you to take their bait and click on a link. Report, delete and you’ve dodged another bullet from the murky world of cyberattacks.

The world of emerging tech is complex and often daunting. We can quickly get used to shutting ourselves away, confined within our own working environment and left to deal with all the various struggles and challenges that arise by ourselves - or if you’re lucky enough, with a supportive team.

Despite all the new ways to share and receive, email remains the tool of choice for most business communication. From sending important documents to day to day collaboration and always on, anywhere access, email is central to productivity.
