The annual RSA Conference Europe kicks off in London on Monday, with industry experts and legislators including European data protection supervisor Peter Hustinx and encryption expert Bruce Schneier slated to present.
This year's conference will again feature issues of data security in the track sessions and keynotes, according to conference manager Linda Lynch.
"There will be an opening panel debate on data security regulations with a panellist from the European Commission looking at the issue from a legal framework perspective," she explained.
"Meanwhile, Information Commissioner Richard Thomas will be looking at how we can learn from the mistakes made so spectacularly in recent months, and his strengthening role."
Other emerging themes to be covered at the conference include security-as-a-service, security virtualisation, and an update on the European Commission's plans to compel certain firms to disclose data breaches.
