The United Kingdom is TES’s favourite country. It is the one where TES meetings are happening more frequently, even if sometimes things play against us: like in February, when the third UK TES meeting had to be postponed at the last minute due to a wave of bad weather that local media nicely dubbed “The Beast from the East”.
But on the 24th of May the UK TES group reconvened in central London, with guests from BT, Plusnet, TalkTalk, LGI/Virgin Media, and a Dutch delegation with KPN and Xs4all. The meeting involved Open-Xchange‘s Vittorio Bertola and Neil Cook presenting a wide range of email security issues, ranging from the usual transport security technologies to email authentication protocols, including new entries like ARC and BIMI. KPN and Dmarcian added a special focus on DMARC deployment, completing a very interesting meeting that ran over time due to the impressive amount of dialogue and exchange of experiences among all participants.
The event continued with a round of beer, a nice dinner sponsored by Scality, and more rounds of beer at several different pubs in the City. Feedback was excellent and people are already looking forward to a fourth UK TES meeting.
However, France is not going to be left behind; the second French TES meeting, as part of a broader Open-Xchange event, is scheduled for next week in Paris. TES will also continue its awareness campaign throughout the world, visiting two new countries: Colombia on June 21, and Japan on September 12. As usual, we welcome the involvement of more players; secure email is good for everyone!
