This two-day security conference is an opportunity for network and security professionals in UK higher education, further education and research to network with peers, share best practice and address common challenges.
You'll also learn more about emerging trends and how we can support members through our range of security products and services.
National and regional experts will present on a spectrum of high level security topics including governance, compliance, regulation and business continuity/disaster recovery.
This first day will be of interest to chief information security officers, IT directors, chief information officers and information security managers.
You'll have the opportunity to meet some of the suppliers who provide security products and services in the exhibition area, and find out what solutions they can provide to your university or college.
There will be a drinks reception at the end of the day one from 17:00-19:30 so you can relax and continue your discussions with speakers, peers, exhibitors and Jisc colleagues.
Hear first-hand how your colleagues in universities and colleges have responded to, and managed, security incidences such as DDoS attacks, phishing and other network security vulnerabilities and developed security best practice to mitigate future incidents.
This second day is likely to be of particular interest to network and security managers and technical staff, including incident response teams.
Hands-on incident response training - Tuesday 6 November
The day before the conference we're running a one-day course at the same venue on how to handle a crisis situation under pressure and manage the aftermath of a security breach. Read more about the course.
