Speaking Opportunity: Infosecurity Conference Europe (21 – 23 June in London) has opened its call for presenters. They are seeking ideas for Strategy Talks, “a series of inspiring, bite-sized presentations addressing the latest technical and strategic challenges, and sharing up-to-the minute information security and cyber security insight, knowledge and best-practice.” The Talks form a key part of the Infosecurity Europe conference program.  Vendor companies must sponsor or exhibit in order to submit a speaker, but sponsorship does not guarantee a speaking slot – it is still a competitive process. Each company may submit up to three submissions but only one may be accepted.  The deadline is Wednesday, 30 November. Speaker notifications will be sent in February 2023.

Lunchtime Learning: Code Conference (which many readers will remember came from those who produced D: All Things Digital Conference) has been celebrated since 2014 for addressing the impact of digital technology on our lives and businesses.

For an sharp recap, summarizing key talking points and featuring video clips on what’s next in tech regulation, the global economy, the future of work, and the climate crisis, check out this piece published by Code’s producing outfit Vox Media.
