This year, the international IFIP TC3 Information Security conference and exhibition will run alongside Futurex & Equip, giving visitors the opportunity to learn more about the vital security aspect of IT while enjoying the full spread of experiences offered by the full exhibition. 


"This is the first time in many years that a show like IFIP has been available to South African delegates. The fact that the organisers have chosen to run it alongside Futurex & Equip is a vote of confidence in our show."
The IFIP TC3 conference to be held in May is just the second time this prestigious global event has been run in South Africa, the last time being in 1995.
While the programme of events is still under review, event organiser Peter Aspinal confirms that one of the keynotes will be delivered by Judge Mervyn King, and deal with corporate governance; and another will be by Professor Ross Anderson or Cambridge University, a world authority on data security.
Other presentations will cover areas such as cryptography, key management and PKI; security, privacy and trust; fraud management; identification management; social issues; change management; governance; forensics; education; networking; human/computer interaction; staganography; RFID; the wireless environment; international standards; privacy enhancing technologies; risk management; methodologies; trust models; and vulnerability assessments.
Futurex & Equip will be held from 15-18 May 2007 at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg.
