National Information Security Conference (NISC)

The Westerwood Hotel, 11th – 13th October 2017



Now in its 18th year, the National Information Security Conference (NISC) provides insight into the most up-to-date cyber security trends, risks and defence strategies.

Cyber security no longer falls under the remit of the IT Manager. High profile security breaches such as Talk-Talk and Tesco have highlighted the impact an attack can have on your business.

The key to an effective defence strategy is to build a solid framework and strengthen your existing security practices. This can often be achieved by ensuring that security protocols are communicated clearly and delivered effectively.

NISC is a highly focused cyber security event designed to encourage peer-to-peer collaboration and thought-leading discussions in a relaxed but professional environment. It provides the proven practices and strategies needed by any cyber security professional to protect their enterprise.

Having carried out a survey of information security professionals from across the UK, NISC 2017 will address the areas cited as of ‘most concern’ in 2016. This will range from issues surrounding malware and cloud security, to the challenges of managing insider threats, a lack of visibility of meaningful security information, as well as compliance.


NISC 2016 featured speakers from The Co-operative Banking Group, Swiss-Re Services, Clydesdale Banking Group and the world renowned explorer, Sir Ranulph Fiennes. Join us at NISC 2017, learn how to enhance existing security protocols and develop defence strategies in line with the risk appetite of your business.
