At Trend Micro we’ve been protecting our customers continuously for the past 31 years. For much of that time, Infosecurity Europe has been the leading industry event in the region for cybersecurity professionals, offering a fantastic opportunity to network, share best practices and war stories, and hear about the latest trends in threat defence.
That’s why Trend Micro will be at the show again this year: we hope you’ll be able to catch our experts speaking at some of the shows must-see keynotes, and drop by our stand to find out more.
An avalanche of
Modern security professionals have a thankless task. They’re expected to support digital transformation efforts which expand the corporate attack surface, whilst battling a combination of voluminous commodity attacks and more sophisticated targeted malware. Trend Micro alone blocked over 48 billion threats in 2018. IT security pros must do all of this with fewer colleagues to help out thanks to chronic industry skills shortages, and an increasingly complex patchwork of regulatory compliance requirements to meet. Over 11,400 breaches have been reported to regulator the ICO since the GDPR came into force in May 2018.
It’s not just the threat of data loss either: we recorded a year-on-year surge in crypto-mining detections of 237% in 2018, a 28% increase in BEC attacks and fileless malware growth of over 800%. Ransomware detections may be falling, but the malware is becoming an increasingly targeted threat for organisations. Attacks can come from anywhere. That’s why Trend Micro offers protection for cloud apps, infrastructure platforms like Azure and AWS, and even right down to the container level — as well as networks, endpoints and more.
At the show
At Infosecurity Europe 2019 in June, our keynote speakers will be focusing on the threat to organisations from Internet of Things (IoT) deployments:
Securing Smarter Cities: Practical Protocol & Policy
06 Jun 2019, 10:00 – 10:25 Tech Talks
VP of Infrastructure Strategies, Bill Malik, will explain where current threats lie in smart city projects, and how they might be mitigated cost-effectively over the coming decade. These efforts will become increasingly important as local authorities look to build safer, more efficient, and environmentally friendly urban centres for their citizens.

Feel the Flow: Where Water & Energy Industries are Most Vulnerable
06 Jun 2019, 11:45 – 12:30 Geek Street
Director of Trend Micro’s Forward-Looking Threat Research (FTR) team, Robert McArdle, will explore some myths about the vulnerability of connected critical infrastructure in utilities. And then he’ll explain how IT teams can profile their own organisation, understanding different attacker profiles and building a more resilient and robust cyber response strategy.

Our outreach at Infosecurity Europe this year is also influenced by Trend Micro’s new Art of Cybersecurity campaign. At our stand you’ll be able to see some examples of the pieces we commissioned from leading global artists, who created their fantastic designs based on our threat data. It’s all part of an effort to redefine cybersecurity as an art form: something to create beauty and order out of the chaotic, malware-saturated world around us. It’s also about us saying that, over three decades on, we’re still thinking in new ways about how to solve some of the biggest online challenges of our day.
