Mack Brooks Exhibitions has announced that inter airport Europe, the airport exhibition, will be rescheduled once more after the last date change announced in April. The 23rd edition of the event will take place from 9 - 12 November 2021 following extensive conversations with all exhibitors, visitors and partners over recent weeks who have expressed their preference to hold the next show as early as possible in November 2021, in order to avoid clashes with other events and holidays. Exhibitors to present indoors Speaking about the announcement, Nicola Hamann, Managing Director of Mack Brooks Exhibitions, said: “Following the consideration of feedback we have received from all stakeholders after the postponement in April, we have been able to secure the earliest slot to hold inter airport Europe in November 2021 and are pleased to announce this new date. The November slot is not an ideal solution for us; however, one week ahead of the previous announcement fits a lot better into the overall event schedule. All outdoor exhibitors who have concerns over the weather in November will be able to present their equipment indoors in 2021.” Recovery of the airport industry The past months have been challenging, in particular for the airport industry. There has been a drastic drop in air travel, orders for new equipment and terminal extensions have been postponed indefinitely, which poses a lot of challenges for equipment and technology providers as well as airports worldwide in dealing with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. inter airport Europe, as the world’s platform for this community and a partner of the airport industry, will be supporting the recovery and reflect the current state of the industry. New concept for the upcoming shows “We believe it is our duty to assist through these extraordinary times by offering a flexible approach and concept for inter airport Europe for the next few years which we are currently developing. Our commitment is to offer our industry the marketplace it needs to emerge from this crisis quicker and stronger,” said Nicola Hamann about the current developments in the airport industry and how inter airport Europe will be adjusting as part of the recovery journey of the industry. Further information on the new concept for the upcoming shows will be available from September. The inter airport Europe Team will communicate closely with customers and partners over the coming weeks and months and thank their exhibitors, partners, suppliers and visitors for their support during this time.
During the Black Hat USA 2020 Virtual Event, Exabeam, the Smarter SIEM™ company, announced that customers can now licence its cloud SIEM technology by use case, beginning with licensable use cases for expedited insider threat and compromised credential detection. In addition, to simplify the process of acquiring and installing critical security content, the company is unveiling the new Exabeam Content Library, an easy-to-use security content repository to help organisations deploy advanced use cases more efficiently. Exabeam use case content increases threat visibility and enables security operations centre (SOC) teams to extract more value from their SIEM. According to the ‘Exabeam 2020 State of the SOC Report,’ security managers and analysts rated their ability to create content the lowest among all hard skills, yet creating rules and models to detect advanced threats, like lateral movement and credential switching, is critical to their security maturity. By providing a simple way to acquire the content needed to detect and remediate these critical security use cases, Exabeam is speeding the time to maturity for organisations. Security business needs “Security use cases for a SIEM tool should be a priority in the CISO’s tool box, and should not only cater to basic security hygiene, for which best practices exist, but also cater to the business needs of the organisation,” wrote Gorka Sadowski, senior director analyst at Gartner in a Gartner report. The Content Library is an online repository of knowledge and content that organisations can use to roll out new use cases. The initial release allows customers to quickly map data sources to security use cases and to download the necessary parsers. Exabeam is also announcing new, easy-to-implement content and tools to help customers maintain security as they adapt to a remote workforce. Investigate data exfiltration Exabeam is further enabling security teams to rapidly obtain value by detecting insider threats" Exabeam Cloud Connector for Code42 allows security teams to quickly detect and investigate data exfiltration by departing and remote employees, as well as the leak of high value data during a merger or acquisition. This announcement follows the previous release of the Exabeam Cloud Connector for Zoom. The ability for Exabeam solutions to easily plug into existing security environments enhances SOC team speed and efficacy. “New research shows that one-third of organisations have been hit with successful cyberattacks since the forced move to work from home. As security teams rush to respond to the pandemic and the increase in threats, it is critical that they find cost-effective ways to strengthen and mature their security posture,” commented Adam Geller, chief product officer, Exabeam. “In announcing these innovations, Exabeam is further enabling security teams to rapidly obtain value by detecting insider threats and compromised credentials and improving their security posture for remote employees.” Turnkey Playbooks “Unlike other SIEM vendors, Exabeam has allowed us to quickly add analytics to detect and investigate insider threats without having to replace our existing log management investment,” explained Director Damien Manuel, Cyber Security Research and Innovation Centre at Deakin University. “That’s a critical capability in the context of constantly evolving risks and potential vulnerabilities, and it gives us a smarter strategy to protect our organisation, employees, customers and data.” Exabeam has also released the first of its previously announced Turnkey Playbooks, automated solutions for common security investigations that do not require third-party licences or configuration. The new Turnkey Playbook for Threat Intelligence automatically identifies malicious domains, IP addresses, URLs, files, and email addresses with no additional configuration or third-party threat intelligence licences required.

Alcatraz Founder and CEO Vince Gaydarzhiev will be featured in the Security Industry Association’s (SIA) AcceleRISE 2020 virtual conference on Friday, July 31, 2020. The event highlights rising young security professionals under the age of 40. It is designed for tomorrow’s security providers to share their current successes in the field, gain momentum for the future, and connect with other rising stars in the industry. “Our RISE committee has truly outdone themselves in designing an agenda that is relevant, engaging and valuable to young professionals and their career development,” said Matt Feenan, SIA RISE chair. Disruptive Technologies panel discussion The AcceleRISE 2020 panel discussion is focused on Disruptive Technologies and how emerging technologies are providing new opportunities in the security sector. Gaydarzhiev will present at the AcceleRISE event on Friday, July 31, 2020. Gaydarzhiev’s journey into the security industry came about as a young hardware engineer while working at Apple on hardware prototyping in the iPhone’s FaceID infancy stages. Vince saw how prolific frictionless and secure access control could be managed via a mobile application. Vince noticed the experience in physical environment was still dependent on badging, turnstiles, and security guards. Gaydarzhiev’s aimed to bring technology to provide more secure access control without the added friction or high personnel costs. Access control platform integration Our goal is to help businesses affordably and seamlessly deliver the highest level of security" Gaydarzhiev went to work developing the Alcatraz Rock platform using 3D facial authentication and AI-based continuous learning and improvement. The Rock works with any access control platform and replaces or augments badging as a credential with facial authentication, 3D sensing, and artificial intelligence to enable highly secure touchless entry into physical locations. The Rock uses passive 3D sensing, machine learning for increased security, and accurate tailgating detection while intelligently enrolling employees as they are badging in, creating a seamless access control experience. Since the Rock also detects masks, it has become the perfect post-COVID solution for businesses that want to deliver touchless security while observing state and local mask mandates. Latest technology for security Apple was not Vince’s first stint with big tech. He has also worked for some of the most renowned tech companies in the world including Planet and NVIDIA where he designed graphically-intensive solutions for Tesla, BMW, and Audi. Because Gaydarzhiev likes to learn just as much as machines, he has earned advanced engineering degrees from Stanford and the University of Southern California and has a bachelor’s in electrical engineering from the University of Central Florida. He lives in San Francisco with his wife and daughter. “I’m honoured to be chosen to present at AcceleRISE 2020,” said Gaydarzhiev. “Our customers tell us, and I truly believe, we are revolutionising access control by delivering a truly autonomous security team on the edge. Our goal is to help businesses affordably and seamlessly deliver the highest level of security with the latest in technology.”
