UK Government CTO Liam Maxwell and Microsoft’s Adrienne Hall join IP EXPO Europe’s outstanding speaker line-up


IP EXPO Europe, Europe’s leading cloud and IT infrastructure event, today announces that government CTO Liam Maxwell and Microsoft’s general manager in Trustworthy Computing, Adrienne Hall will be keynote speakers at the event on 8th-9th October this year. Maxwell will speak at IP EXPO Europe’s keynote theatre, whilst Hall will present at Cyber Security EXPO’s keynote theatre.

Since his appointment in 2012, Liam Maxwell has become known for reforming IT management and protocols throughout government, challenging existing norms and ever looking towards future trends in industry. Offering a unique perspective on public sector IT issues and addressing key concerns regarding public services in the cloud, Liam is set to deliver an energising and enlightening talk at IP EXPO Europe for professionals across the IT spectrum.

Maxwell’s speech is expected to examine how the UK Government can build world-class digital services, saving time and money and stimulating a generation of world-beating British software and service businesses that can save billions for the taxpayer – provided that services are based on user needs. Underpinning Government work is a belief in openness everywhere – commitment to open standards and sharing work, methods, code and data. Being open levels the playing field so that all sorts of technologies and all sorts of suppliers can work with government.

Adrienne Hall is a general manager in Microsoft’s Trustworthy Computing group. She is a Cloud Security Alliance board member as well as a founding member of the Executive Women’s Forum for Security, Privacy and Risk Management Professionals. Tapping into her experience on how the cloud is shifting the way businesses think about IT, from reducing operational costs to freeing up resources in order to focus on innovation in a mobile-first, cloud-first world, Adrienne will offer unique insights at this year’s Cyber Security EXPO for any forward-thinking senior information security professionals and IT managers. She will also share Microsoft’s approach to providing secure and private cloud services in a world where trust is continually challenged.

Both of these speakers add to the already impressive line-up of speakers for the two day event, which includes inventor of the World Wide Web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, creator of Hadoop, Doug Cutting and security and privacy guru, Bruce Schneier.

Liam Maxwell will speak at the IP EXPO Europe keynote theatre on 8th October at 1pm. Adrienne Hall will speak at the Cyber Security EXPO keynote theatre, also on 8th October, at 16:20pm.

How to use a hashtag at your event


The #hashtag is an ambitious typographical sign. Relegated until now to a little-known function on our telephones, it’s time to shine has arrived. When Twitter appeared on scene, hashtags were primarily functional — a way of categorizing tweets by topic so that members of the Twittersphere could follow conversations of interest. But now, they are way more than that. Hashtags are now one of the most important tools when it comes to promoting, measuring, and taking part in events, and organizers know it very well. Here are the steps to using a hashtag for your event, and benefitting from the huge media exposure this can give you on social networks.


1. Choose your hashtag

There are four traits a successful event hashtag should have:

  • Easy to remember and write: keep it as simple and short as possible.
  • Relevant: for engaging other users that have no idea of what your event is about.
  • Short: try to take up as little of the 140 twitter characters as possible
  • Unique: it should be something that will only be used by the people at your event

2. Promote your hashtag before the event

According to an Amiando survey, 60% of the tweets at an event are sent during the event, and the other 40% is sent before or after, so make sure that your hashtag is included in all social promotions of your event to build awareness. Show the hashtag on your event registration page, and ask attendees to “Join in the conversation”. Then, read carefully to get a general idea of what the people are expecting from your event.

3. Encourage conversations during the event

Using a service like Eventstagram, you can have the conversation and/or images on a live slideshow on the projector or screen. This will entice others to join the conversation during the event, as well as allowing people who weren’t able to attend to find out what’s going on. Engage with the attendees by retweeting, and asking or answering questions, and have the speakers at the events remind people about the hashtag. If you don’t think you will have time, schedule a few inspiring tweets to send during the event.

4. Harvesting information and keeping track after the event

Keep a list of the attendees for other occasions, and thank them all individually for coming. You can then download a report on how many people shared something with your hashtag, what was the most engaging content, and access all the pictures, questions and remarks that people shared on social media. This provides valuable information about the behavior of the attendees, and how many people were aware of your event on Social Media, even if they weren’t attending. Keep the conversation going until it fades. Ask questions and share the most valuable pieces of information again, and you will be surprised how much more exposure you can get after the event is over.

Cyber Security EXPO calls for hacks


Cyber Security EXPO, part of IP EXPO Europe, is calling for contributors to the Cyber Hack, a live open source security lab arriving at the show this October.

The Hack area allows for true industry collaboration, giving you the opportunity to demonstrate hacks in real time and explain to audiences how to beat them. We’ll also have some of the best defence and security minds present for you to challenge.

Cyber security is arguably the biggest issue facing today’s IT industry – every week we hear about a new threat or compromise and the aftermath of damaging cyber-attacks that have left organisations – and often their customers too – vulnerable and exposed. For this reason, Cyber Security EXPO has developed a place for White Hat hackers, security gurus and industry professionals to come together to share ideas and showcase hacks in real time.

Whether it’s a hack demonstration, a new vulnerability, research findings or just something you want to get off your chest, fill out the Call for Hacks submission form here before 31st July and join this exciting new show experience.

Eison Technical Day – Transforming The Data Centre, 22nd July 2014 @ 9:30 – 13:15, Manchester.

Eison twitter

The ‘traditional’ Data Centre is often held back by separate silos of infrastructure and control, with servers, storage, networking resources, and management systems delivered individually to each application or group.

With few economies of scale to be found in this approach, a constrained, inflexible and complex IT infrastructure develops, that cannot keep pace with the new application and service requirements of today’s increasingly demanding and distributed workforce.

Love them or hate them, Cisco was the first to address this issue by unifying the data centre into one seamless environment that provides agile, simplified and efficient IT service delivery.

During this event we will be exploring the depth and functionality of the Cisco Unified Data Centre architecture. We will be examining the ways in which it overcomes the traditional data centre constraints by bringing together computing, networking, management and storage into a single integrated platform (a fabric-based infrastructure) that enables end-to-end server visibility, management, and control in both bare metal and virtual environments. We will also be looking at the practical steps to get the most from the technology and the financial benefits achieved from moving to a Unified Data Centre, finishing with a hands on demonstration.
