This Year's Speaker Highlights

The conference this year can promise both controversy and deep knowledge in the form of its major keynote speakers. Here are three...

Chief security technology officer at BT, Bruce Schneier will no doubt bring his own very individual take on where information security is today, as signalled by a speech entitled ‘Security, privacy and the generation gap'. Tuesday, 10.40

Former White House advisor on cyber terrorism and cyber security, Richard A Clarke, will be able to call on 11 consecutive years' service under three different US presidents when he delivers his keynote on how to counter cyber crime, cyber espionage and cyber war. Wednesday, 10.45

Finally, something completely different, after all the serious business of RSA 2010 is done. Star of BBC TV programme, The Real Hustle, Alexis Conran is described as part raconteur, part magician, part cardsharp and hustler! He will close RSA Conference Europe 2010 with what will undoubtedly be a highly entertaining take on social engineering. Thursday, 16.00

New for 2010

Joining Paul on the panel will be: Flemming Faber, senior adviser, National IT and Telecom Agency; Ian Glover, president, Council of Registered Ethical Security Testers (CREST); Stephen Bonner, head of information risk management (IRM), Barclays Bank; and Chris Batten, managing director, Acumin Consulting.
