IT security is the topic of this year’s Secure 2012 Conference and .eu staff will be available at EURid’s exhibition stand to answer questions how the .eu top-level domain contributes to online safety and to discuss the benefits of being online with .eu.

IIS is a member of EURid and sits on the .eu registry’s Strategic Committee. In addition to being an event sponsor, EURid is exhibiting at stand 5.
