Spirent Security Experts to Speak at Upcoming Industry Events in the UK

Company will Present at UK Security Expo, London Metropolitan University, and Black Hat Europe 2017

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 27, 2017 — Building on its momentum in the worldwide cyber security market, Spirent Communications plc (LSE:SPT) today announced a series of speaking engagements in London at the UK Security Expo, London Metropolitan University, and Black Hat Europe 2017. The company will also demonstrate its portfolio of security solutions for testing and identifying security vulnerabilities at these venues.

Spirent’s thought leadership sessions follow its recent announcement that it achieved global CREST certification for penetration testing services—considered to be the gold standard for penetration testing in EMEA, the Americas, Asia, and Australasia.

“The cyber security threat landscape is constantly changing, and these events give security professionals a unique opportunity to share insights and experiences” said Sameer Dixit, senior director, SecurityLabs at Spirent. “As a new CREST-certified global member, we embrace the opportunity to extend our thought leadership in the European region. Borders are transparent in the digital world, and as security professionals we must take proactive measures to give customers peace of mind that they are receiving the highest quality technical services, with their privacy secure. This is even more relevant as Europe, and any company doing business in Europe, prepares for the new GDPR data protection law to take effect next May.”
