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 17:00-19:00 so you can relax and continue your discussions with speakers, peers, exhibitors and Jisc colleagues.
