IPVM Live From ISC West 2013

Author: Carlton Purvis, Published on Apr 09, 2013

In this post, we bring updates from the show floor, highlighting the great and not-so-great trends we see at the show. UPDATE: Our full roundup of the whole show is now live: Best and Worst at ISC West 2013.

Attendance was strong but lumpy. Most areas had overflowing traffic, though some rows and sections were eerily quiet. We are not sure why, though we think the limited entrances are contributing to that.

Did you hear the Next Generation Security Leader session was so packed their wasn't enough seating? One end user I spoke with got there just before it started and had to sit behind a pillar. He ended up leaving with others as they couldn't see the presentation?

On another note, I was disappointed SIA doesn't have a flexible pricing option for the education sessions. There were 4 sessions on 3 days I was interested in attending, but paying full price for 4 sessions does not make financial sense for me.

Funny, I was just saying yesterday, if Longse or Cantook are at the show I am definitely paying a visit for one single reason . . . Get our company off your SPAM list. Hundreds of email a month!!!

Undisclosed, yes, it seemed to be packed to capacity. While the title has sizzle, it seems to be the equivalent of 'Tony Robins' for security. Here's a promo video for the program:

As for pricing, it's incredibly expensive to attend all the educational sessions ($399 for a day, $799 for the week) and they are not available a la carte. We've seen the statistics from previous ISCs that only a fraction of show attendees go to the educational events.

The session did trigger me to revisit our companies 10-K section of prospectus for risks.

I asked Longse to take me off the spam list, and they said 'okay'. But then they wanted to scan my badge afterward. The mortal coil.

I understand the concerns. Years ago, I actually attended some "classes" and found most were poorly disguised manufacturer promos.

It kind of reminds me of paying $10 to watch ads at a movie theater, but at least there you get two hours of entertainment along with your 30 minutes of commercials.
