Infosec trade shows are not dead!

Have IT fairs become obsolete? No, absolutely not! [Video]

Unexpectedly high visitor interest for the LUCY Testing and Awareness Server at it-sa 2017.

Three days in Nuremberg. Three people at the booth. There’s always something going on. Demos are made, questions answered and business cards exchanged. Lunchtime will be cancelled and at the end of the first day the first printed matter will be sold out.  The young company LUCY Security started to exhibit at IT-Security fairs / tradeshows in year 3 of its existence. The stand at this year’s it-sa is already the fourth appearance of this year. Every exhibition has been a success so far! The interest was great everywhere, you could make a lot more LUCY presentations than normal and you could feel the pulse of the market at every trade show!

Itsa – The pulse of the information security market is pounding! Or maybe he’s even furious. With 630 exhibitors and just under 13,000 visitors, the it-sa trade fair 2017 in Nuremberg was able to record an increase of more than 25% in both key figures compared to the previous year! All of these visitors felt at LUCY’s stand; -) In any case, the interest was enormous and we don’t regret the decision to exhibit at the probably most important European Security Fair in any way.

LUCY Security is on the right track with its product: Employee awareness will become a key InfoSec topic of the year 2018, we are convinced! The 45 seconds clip below gives a good impression of the fair:

PITS 2017 - Public IT Security im Hotel Adlon Berlin 12/13. September 2017

LUCY at PITS 2017: “The best action against social engineering is own social engineering!”

Have you ever prepared and launched a phishing attack in 15 minutes? Vaccine your staff with realistic phishing simulations and active training against malware and ransomware! We show this at PITS 2017, organized by the mighty german “Behördenspiegel”.

On September 13th, 2017, we will show live at PITS – the Public IT Security Fair 2017 at Hotel Adlon – how to set up, implement, execute and monitor a web-based phishing campaign in LUCY for training purposes. Our LUCY founder, Oliver Münchow, shows how she:

  • Create a web based phishing scenario, using your own website as a template
  • Insert additional “layers” in the scenario, so that you can capture username and password
  • Configure and personalize the phishing mail messages
  • Start, run and monitor the campaign including the behaviour when a user is trapped. We show also how the data input is tracked and stored
  • Analyze the results of the phishing campaign

And all this within 15 minutes! Sign up below!
