    Link11 in London at the LINX117 event

    We are live at events again and are happy to be on tour after a long break. After exhibiting at it-sa in Nuremberg at the end of October and at the Cyber Security Strategy Summit in Berlin at the beginning of November, the Link11 team is heading to London next. On November 23rd and 24th 2022 you will find us at the Park Plaza, Victoria London at the LINX117 event.

    In the British capital, Ken MacIntyre, Link11 Sales Director in the UK, will be presenting a short keynote speech on the second day of the conference. Entitled “Operating in the zero-outage era leaves no room for system failure: Why an AI based system is key to success”, it promises to provide a brief and detailed insight into why using AI-based technology is now mandatory.

    Artificial intelligence – faster and more precise

    By now, it is clear to almost all companies that serious cyber incidents and their consequences are to be avoided in any case. The title of the Link11 talk puts it in a nutshell: in the zero-outage age, there is no room for system failures. And this is exactly where AI-based IT security solutions demonstrate their strengths.

    These systems are operational “24/7” and manage to identify anomalies in large amounts of data almost in real time. In addition, they learn independently when a situation should be classified as critical. As a result, they detect cyber threats such as DDoS attacks faster and more precisely than any human would be able to.

    LINX117 with dense and diverse program

    However, the LINX117 event offers guests even more. In addition to two-time Olympian Chris Cook taking guests on a journey through the highlights and pitfalls of his Olympic career, the two-day event will focus primarily on technical presentations.

    These will focus on topics such as updates to the LINX network and associated strategies. There will also be reports on the new UK regulations and legislation, the Telecoms Security Act and the Online Safety Bill, and how the Keep Ukraine Connected Taskforce has managed to keep the Ukrainian Internet running. The dense program offers a variety of touch points for each guest to enjoy informative discussions during the breaks.
