e-Crime & cyber security news
Featured event: Online gaming

The online gaming industry depends for its growth, and indeed its existence, on maintaining customer confidence in these card-based, internet and mobile payments processes. And, as recent hacks have shown, these processes are vulnerable.

Today's online gaming industry understands the need to upgrade its payment architecture as technology advances.

Companies are looking for the latest risk management and fraud prevention solutions. And they want them to be cost-effective, easy to implement and manage and scaleable.

To meet this need we will gather key decision-makers from the online gaming industry. They will use the event to evaluate the cyber-security solutions available to them in payments and in the overall security of their digital businesses.

About The CyberSpotlight series
Cyber security is in transition. Digital is just the way we all now do business. Mobile and tablet are replacing the desktop. At every level, physical infrastructure is increasingly networked, remote-controlled and internet-enabled. In this world, generic overviews of network security can only achieve so much. As specific industries develop their own operating models, they are finding they need industry-specific advice and solutions. 

To meet this need, AKJ has developed The CyberSpotlight - a new series of in-depth, one-day summits. Each Spotlight looks in detail at the cyber security issues of a single industry vertical, delivering the latest analysis of sector-specific threats and solutions. In this way, The CyberSpotlight can deliver specific, actionable and relevant information to time-constrained industry professionals. And it gives solution providers an opportunity to deliver tailored advice to the right audience.
About the Organisers
AKJ Associates team is passionate about bringing end users together with service suppliers who can help solve the security, compliance and risk management challenges that face large enterprises, global companies and governments. 
Staffed by a highly skilled team of professionals the company’s ability to fully understand key event objectives, communicate the benefits and value of participation to a prospective audience, and execute operational deliverables ‘on the day’ ensures that our events consistently deliver and exceed client expectations.
Our reputation as the foremost provider of conferences and meetings on technology risk and security matters has been earned over a decade of hosting market-leading events.
Why sponsor
The CyberSpotlight format is designed to deliver a focused, engaged audience. We will deliver concentrated and relevant content that attracts key decision-makers. Each event represents a targeted opportunity to address the needs of a unique community.

Sponsors do not need to be all things to all companies; instead they can pre-prepare their materials and messages to the needs of an audience all of whom share similar concerns and challenges, all of whom are looking for solutions now.

We work with sponsors to ensure they meet their commercial aims. We offer a number of sponsorship options, each providing specific brand and solution visibility as well as audience engagement.

We will format our CyberSpotlights to provide sponsors with a unique platform to showcase solutions, as well as provide advice and thought leadership on how best to solve our delegates’ challenges.

Events are structured to reflect the needs of each industry sector agenda. Networking opportunities are also scheduled over the course of the day. All refreshment breaks and meals are served in the exhibition area to further ensure your company representatives maximise visibility and networking opportunities.  more
The Cyber Spotlight Focus
Online Gaming
6 October 2015, London, UK

This CyberSpotlight will illuminate the $100 billion a year online gaming and gambling sector, with a special focus on securing the payment and personal data process. Gaming and gambling are superficially different, but both depend on the secrity of their systems and prtecting their players against fraud. This event will look at the systems, processes, solutions and regulations that companies across all forms of online gaming must keep on top of.

7 October 2015, London, UK

This CyberSpotlight will shine on Cyber Insurance. With daily news of data breaches, DDoS attacks and control system hijacks, most companies have realized they must incorporate cyber security into their wider risk management processes. They are therefore starting to look at buying insurance to cover the key losses they face from cyber attacks. But market participants on all sides need more information and advice and they need to share their experiences and needs with each other.

November 2015, London, UK

This CyberSpotlight will shed light on the complexities of cyber security in the Maritime industry. Maritime is the linchpin of world trade, economic prosperity and border security. It is also a vast, interconnected web of networked computer and control systems that run the shipping, oil and gas and port industries. Significant disruption to any part of this ecosystem could have catastrophic consequences.
