Posted by Ana-Maria Lupu on 20-Jun-2019 12:18:37

PixelPin hit the westside of London for InfoSecurity 2019, and what a time it was! This year’s conference was one of the busiest, with over 15,000 security professionals navigating the floor space over three days. From the established corporations to the debuting start-ups, Olympia London lit up with creativity and passion for the future of the technology sector; however, the brightest spot for us, was our very own booth, Q140, in the UK Cyber Security Innovation Zone. This year marked PixelPin’s second turn exhibiting, and, just as the previous year, it was a humbling, enthralling, and educational experience.
