During the first day of the event, VeriSign announced the UK launch of ‘VeriSign Security Risk Profiling Service, an applied intelligence service and new Managed Security Services Offering, designed to identify, quantify and visualise security risk'
The service which was presented during a series of VeriSign seminars presented in the London rooms, is designed to help Security/risk officers reduce the time spent trying to identify the latest threats and vulnerabilities, and helps to determine how to prioritize response activities. During the presentation VeriSign demonstrated real world scenarios, and how the right combination of people, process, technology, and intelligence can enable effective risk management and help identify and mitigate both external and internal threats.
VeriSign presented four vendor keynote sessions in the London rooms on the first day - Read on to review and download the London room seminars.
