Personal Devices And The Law; Understand Where The Buck Stops Here And How To Never Fall Foul Of The Regulators
In this session hear who's to blame in the eyes of the law if a personal device goes missing or is compromised. Also, as the person responsible for security in your organisation, understand your rights if the worst happens; who owns the data and can you examine or wipe your staff's personal devices?
Speakers: Peter Gibbons, Head of Information Security, Network Rail

In the third of our webinars showcasing presentations from the PMB 60th Anniversary Symposium, Bas Raaymakers examines the use of image guidance during radiation therapy. He will describe the various options available for radiotherapy guidance, including in-room CT-on-rails, MV imaging, fluoroscopy, ultrasound, tracking of implanted beacons and cone-beam CT. In particular, he will discuss the use of MRI for real-time visualization of the tumour and its surroundings during treatment.Read more >
Digital payments saw an increase in popularity last year and doesn't show any signs of slowing down. With more and more countries supporting the fight to go cashless, will 2017 truly be the year of digital payments?
Join this panel where industry experts will discuss:
· Digital Payments v the need of the consumer for instant gratification are they compatible.
· Consumers say they want to deal with banks for security v Fintech and understanding consumers what they want
· Data and the limitations of what goes down card scheme rails
· Closed loop digital payment solutions v new schemes v open loop who will win
· How long until the majority of consumers no longer feel the need to carry some cash, or is that an unrealistic expectation
· Will increasing regulation mean frictionless digital payments become a mirage
FinTech doesn’t just sit in London or New York or Singapore. It sit inside every industry and every country – it is the rails and the platforms for which money is moved and spent and saved and loaned. FinTech is not the preserve of old, white men (the stale, male and pale crowd as some call it) but It improves the lives of women in the third world, allows a teenager to check their balance before a trip to the mall and makes it easier for fund managers to process reporting.
Financial services, as an industry, plays a part in almost every major life decision from buying a home, to starting a business to retirement. FinTech aims to make the part banks and financial services play easier and more efficient. For FinTech to have the most affective impact, from global to the local, it has to create a place where a wide variety of experiences and voices are welcomed to shape the future of our world.
Join us and our exciting panel as we discuss ‘Finding your place in the FinTech Future’

Historically, gearboxes and main bearings have been a headache for wind farm operators and owners. They have failed to meet service expectations within such a dynamic operating environment.
So how do your main bearings measure up? Is your bearing system reliable? How can you reduce costs without compromising reliability?
In this live Windpower Monthly webcast, we take a detailed look at the material issues and the true wear and tear of bearings.
Tune in live to learn:
- How to get the best from inspections and existing data
- How to classify bearing damage
- Strategies to address the root problem of failed bearings and extend their life
- When you should replace bearings
- The secrets to increase drivetrain performance
Don’t miss this opportunity to hear our expert speakers discuss how software and services can help you increase drivetrain performance, increase reliability, reduce costs and solve existing issues.

Ground source energy from energy piles or vertical boreholes is an increasingly popular method of providing renewable heat energy for building. What about using tunnels as an energy source? Is it feasible, worthwhile and what are the benefits? This seminar explores the issues and looks at some project examples where energy has been extracted from road and rail tunnels.Read more >
Kieran McKenna, London Storage Manager at global engineering firm Arup, shares his experiences in how to manage data storage infrastructures to reduce space, hardware and power requirements.
Arup has an ever increasing data load as it constantly creates and updates plans for high profile projects like London Heathrow Terminal 5, the Beijing Olympic Stadium and the Channel Tunnel Rail Link. Engineers need instant access to current as well as historical plans, sometimes dating back decades, which equates to a vast amount of data that needs to be stored, backed-up, regulated and recovered in the event of a disaster.
Kieran will detail four IT projects including data and mail consolidation, tapeless back-up, virtualisation and lifecycle management that have enabled Arup to work leaner, smarter, cheaper, and greener whilst still meeting storage requirements.
