National Information Security Conference (NISC)

10th – 12th October 2018

The National Information Security Conference (NISC) is the UK’s largest independent cyber security conference. Established in the year 2000 and now celebrating its 19th year, NISC continues to go from strength to strength. Designed for information security professionals, by information security professionals, 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. 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.

Join us at NISC 2018, learn how to enhance existing security protocols and develop defence strategies in line with the risk appetite of your business.
