What can I say, it was truly a very inspiring and educational experience. The knowledge of the speakers is exceptional and network opportunities aplenty.
Once again, PCI London provided the opportunity to gain insights from industry experts into PCI, GDPR and general IT security. The event was well organised, informative and enjoyable. The main presentations covered general aspects of compliance and security whilst the break-out sessions offered a good choice of more in-depth insights with industry vendors.
I thought the event had good attendance from a networking perspective and had an array of good speakers helping attendees tread a careful path between regulation, standards and best practice. The education seminars were a good complement and an opportunity for deep dives in specific areas too.
I found the event extremely useful in getting an industry perspective on what is going on in the world of PCI and GDPR. Speakers were knowledgeable on their respective areas and the 20 minute sessions were just enough to get the information required but not so much that attention spans were stretched!! Many thanks again for a great event.
The presentations and educational breakouts are always interesting, whether you are learning from experts or real-life cases. Whether you learn something new or have decisions you have made confirmed these sessions are always valuable.
This event was yet another triumph. I know the format is tried and tested, but it works really well. From a personal perspective I bumped into a couple of old colleagues, and was able to meet up with 2 vendors – one old, one new – in the breaks. Your speakers were outstanding, some of them inspirational, and as ever the topics were spot on for their relevance. The seminars I attended were excellent and gave me a number of ideas which I now need to follow up. For me it was a thoroughly worthwhile day. Congratulations and thank you. See you all next time!
I thought this was the best of the PCI events that I have attended to date. I particularly enjoyed the Chairman’s assessment of the current state of security and security vendors.
PCI London was perfect for me this year - the right level of presentations and hosted by very relevant and good selection of relevant vendors - many thanks.
Once again I thoroughly enjoyed the event and thought the organisation was absolutely first class. The opportunity to speak directly to vendors who understand the issues and complexity around PCI was extremely beneficial. I also thought the openness and honesty of the presenters, to share their experiences and guidance was extremely insightful. The education sessions were very relevant and informative with an openness that made the event extremely worthwhile to attend.
[...] I found the conference extremely informative, professionally put together and has increased my knowledge around both PCI DSS and GDPR. I thought the length of the individuals segments was just right, and I felt informed without the dreaded information overload. I also liked the way the day was split into break out sessions and group talks - giving us the opportunity to listen to industry speakers talking about what was most relevant to our individual jobs. [...] Again, thank you for all the hard work your team put in, to make it such a success I look forward to hopefully attending another conference at a later date.
Even with changes to the agenda and the content of some of the presentations due to the EU leave decision, which were deftly and professionally handled, the whole day was informative from start to end. Some of the speakers were able to introduce real passion and fun into what could be seen as a dry topic to the outsider. The breakout sessions I went to were packed out and were delivered by knowledgeable speakers, authorities in their own area who engaged their audiences well. Expect to be challenged in your thinking; meet some new people facing similar issues to you and enjoy being looked after by the catering team.
Once again a great opportunity to network with industry experts, vendors and merchants and immerse ourselves in the world of PCI.
I found the PCI London 2017 event a great stage for learning more about the impact that the changes in regulations, legislation will be having, not only on the payment card industry but in general for all businesses. The presentation were good and presented a good mix of organisations. The ability to talk with Vendors in a non-pressured environment and network with other likeminded individuals from different companies was an opportunity that doesn’t happen on a day to day basis. For this alone it is very valuable.
I thought yesterday’s event was excellent … There was obviously a fair amount of angst surrounding GDPR and how businesses should approach this legislation. However, the speakers who covered this subject (plus how their respective service/product propositions could smooth the way) did a great job, presenting creative, well-balanced and informative guidance which I found particularly helpful. See you next year!
The event was of great benefit as I had the opportunity to speak to different vendors about their solutions and have discussions with a number of QSAs.
As usual PCI London provided insightful sessions, excellent networking opportunities, and a focused selection of exhibitors offering PCI related products and services. With industry attention now on GDPR, the content allowed attendees to position PCI compliance as a building block to meeting the latest regulations. Unmissable!
PCI London provided me with unique access to PCI specialists, vendors and peers facing into the same challenges that I have; not just PCI compliance itself but related e-commerce security topics including GDPR and post-Brexit strategy. A very well organised and run event.
Informative, interesting, intriguing, inspirational. The speakers and break-out sessions were excellent, as was the overall theme of the conference. A well organised event and one to which I will definitely plan to return.
Very useful is an understatement! Great presentations, superb event organisation and many opportunities to network. Will definitely attend the next event.
In my view I thoroughly enjoyed the PCI London event with some excellent presentations from a number of speakers. This gave a good opportunity to interact with a number of product companies who are providing state of the art PCI solutions for large contact centre operations. Gave good insight of Tokenisation and GDPR. All in all, a very productive day. I also wanted to appreciate AKJ Associates for planning the event very well (Time management, logistics and the food).
PCI London is the best forum available both for merchants to keep abreast of the standards and issues; and also for sponsors to network with customers and partners.
Well done! I enjoyed the whole event. It was informative, thought-provoking and well managed throughout the day. I’m definitely going to visit next year's event.
Thanks again for a great PCI London event. It was great to participate in such an interesting event with many interesting people and good facilities & logistics
The PCI London Conference was and excellent and very well organised event providing a great mix of seminars and networking opportunities. The networking with both the exhibitors and other attendees at the conference was really valuable and I have picked up several really useful contacts.
It was my first experience at PCI London and it brought an immense value for me from both learning and networking perspective as a founder for a new startup. I aimed to learn about online payment solutions, industry standards and regulations and network with peers and potential vendors. PCI London lived up to my expectation and I do highly recommend it for anyone in the field.
The quality and breadth of knowledge of the speakers was excellent and provided much food for thought which we will apply to our PCI-DSS environment. It’s always interesting to talk to suppliers and peers in the industry and share information on how to protect CHD.
As always the event was very well organised - I really cannot fault anything about your events, I really mean it !!
FireHost was pleased to return to PCI London this year and found the event to be very well attended. We had a very positive experience and look forward to participating in the future. Great job by AKJ in putting on this high quality PCI event!
I found this years' conference provided some timely, insightful messages which will no doubt inform our future cyber risk strategy not just across the PCI front but across all our theatre of risk.
It was a pleasure to work with AKJ and i really enjoyed the day and the selection and quality of content in the presentations throughout the day.
This was my first PCI London event. I found it to be a very professionally run conference held within an exceptional venue. I was extremely impressed with the variety of the presentations the content and the array of subjects that were covered throughout the day. It was an opportunity to meet, discuss and share experiences with colleagues and peers. The format of the event was particularly pleasing as it allowed for interaction and change of approach at regular intervals which maintained a good level of interest in the topics from start to finish. I am looking forward to the next PCI London event in January already.
PCI London is a well organised, professional event. It gives you the opportunity to meet likeminded people and organisations who really care about cyber security.
It was properly organised and I am very happy to say that the conference has provided a platform to meet likeminded people around the industry. I can say that I got an opportunity to meet people from wide industry background. Moreover, the educational seminars gave me an opportunity to find different products and services available in market for PCI. I will highly recommend this conference to all the professionals working on PCI DSS in his/her organisation. This is a right platform not only to meet people but also to understand different trends, legislation, products, services etc. related to PCI DSS.
[...] I found the event very informative and also hope that from one of the seminars we can implement a solution to help us with our ongoing PCI requirements. One of the main benefits was the information coming out of the ICO regarding the GDPR and the impact it is going to have irrespective of the UK coming out of the EU. The event was an ideal platform to show the industry how PCI also pushes you along the road to becoming compliant with the GDPR where the two frameworks complement each other.
PCI London was a dynamic and well organised event and with the GDPR being so topical at the moment I am sure it was helpful to many security professionals to enable them to understand how this can work alongside the PCI DSS to help protect data in our organisations.
I attended the PCI London event as a speaker. The event was well run, and I was very well looked after by the conference director and the audio team. My slot started and finished exactly on schedule. I’d like to thank the team for the opportunity to speak and I am sure that my company would love to be part of this event in the future.
Another valuable PCI London event which provided real-world PCI advice and guidance from professionals across the industry.
It was very useful and informative event. This gave an opportunity to interact with a number of industry experts to understand the PCI roadmap / any impacts from GDPR and get their experience. Some of the speakers conveyed some good real life examples which was very useful. Provided an opportunity to chat with a number of solution providers who are providing PCI services.
Highly focused PCI professionals, many of which had real needs.. Overall it seemed like a great coming together of people with pain points, and people with solutions!
Good exposure to an audience of PCI experts, while offering a worthwhile opportunity to network and engage with potential clients and partners.
It was a splendid event, as they all are of course, but I felt that the line-up of speakers in both the main conference and in the seminars was very good at this event. All very relevant to the issues we all face, well presented and interesting. The networking was the cream on the top, and worked very well for me.
PCI London was extremely well attended as has to be the premier showcase event for anyone in the PCI space in Europe.
I have found the spotless organisation of PCI London extremely pleasant and interesting. The quantity and quality of the presentations have been masterfully balanced with the detailed contents of the seminars, which I personally appreciated as a learning and thought opportunity.
I found the event a particularly useful one, with a good range of professional speakers from merchants, banks, suppliers and, of course, the brands, in the form of Visa. The presentation sessions were interesting and didn't seem rushed, and the optional seminars I attended were also excellent, with the chance to interact with authoritative practitioners. I have a number of helpful take-aways from all of these.
I am glad I came, I found the event interesting and informative, the speakers where excellent and I intend to visit again.
We are always delighted to meet so may delegates at PCI London with a genuine interest in de-scoping call centres, home workers and outsourcers from PCI DSS regulations and audits, whilst maintaining customer service and sales.
I had the pleasure of attending the PCI conference on the 1st July in London. The main speakers, case studies and the additional “break-out sessions” were informative and interesting. I also had some very productive conversations with the suppliers who were exhibiting. I have identified at least 5 points that will aid our PCI compliance programme in FY15.
