My Thoughts on my Recent Trip to Mexico and LATAM’s Position on Information Security: Bigger and More Expensive Means Better?

Most recently I traveled to Mexico City in large part to support a tradeshow and presentation I was to deliver at Segurinfo Mexico 2016.

My hat’s off to the organizers of Segurinfo Mexico 2016, which is held in Mexico City every year as they held a very powerful event! Over the past few years this event has continued to build attendance and interest at a brisk pace as they achieved a record high attendance and a wonderful gathering of vendors and practitioners alike. All-in-all, I believe that if one couldn’t learn something from the Segurinfo Mexico 2016 show then the problem probably laid more with the seeker than the organizers of this show!

As the saying goes in the real world, “necessity is the mother of invention.” However, those of us that work in the technology sector know that this isn’t always the starting point or source in our arena. There are volumes of cautionary tales and vast, virtual graveyards of “products looking for a problem to solve.” Often, these come about when vendors look across their technology portfolio and identify logical interactions that only they can see. Other times they occur through overzealous business development efforts, a sort of unfortunate “you got your chocolate in my peanut butter” scenario where the result tastes anything but sweet.
