The event was a big success providing insightful information on measures to improve cybersecurity protocols and a fertile ground for networking.
As stated by Pat Keogh after the conference:

‘Attending conferences such as ‘Zero Day Conference’ helps us to keep up-to-date with security sector developments and implement lessons learned in our daily operations. The upcoming GDPR regulations will have a major impact on our processes and procedures. Structures will need to be planned and implemented over the next 6 months to be compliant with European law and above all keep our client’s data as secure as possible’ – Pat Keogh, Arema Connect CEO
