Panel Debate in association with

Tech Trailblazers

Most product development by cyber security vendors is really just old technology in new tins. Genuine innovation is rare. Meanwhile, global IT companies market expensive services and consultancy options to manage the cyber security threat instead of focusing on security R&D.

So where are the affordable technology breakthroughs the information security community desperately needs to defeat cyber crime? If the giant corporations are too big, too bloated to innovate, does salvation lie in the security start-up community? Probably, but are these businesses getting the support they need? Can they succeed in the market, even disrupt the market, before they become acquired and diluted as part of bigger security businesses?

This special lunchtime panel, made up of Tech Trailblazers judges, will seek to answer these questions and more.
