Promo Cybersecurity software firm Sophos is inviting IT professionals to "See the Future" at The Brewery, near the Barbican in London, on Tuesday 9 October.

Starting at 8.45am and continuing until 4.15pm, this free event will include lunch in elegant 18th century surroundings. In between talks and breakout sessions, the experts from Sophos will cover everything from the latest ransomware threats to current trends in IT security and how to future-proof your organisation.

Attendees will gain an insider’s view on the company’s latest technology developments, the innovations it has in the pipeline and its business strategy.

Sophos CEO Kris Hagerman and Dan Schiappa, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Products, will be the main speakers. They will also be available for informal talks and questions.

Likely to be the star attraction will be keynote speaker Alexis Conran, best known for his appearances on The Real Hustle, the BBC3 programme exposing scams and cons. Cook, raconteur, magician, card-shark and hustler, Alexis will tell you everything you need to know about risk, communication and body language.
