“(ISC)2 EMEA has delivered educational conferences across the region for nearly 10 years, allowing us to develop a strong network of top-notch speakers that can offer real insight into the issues we are all facing,” says John Colley, CISSP, managing director, (ISC)2 EMEA. “What makes this initiative really interesting is the opportunity we have to showcase the wealth of experience within the membership. This event presents a unique opportunity for professionals at all levels to come together, share what they are experiencing on the front lines, and learn from each other. I anticipate strong, informative, and really useful sessions across the five designated conference tracks.”
