Jisc Security Conference 2019

Venue: Hilton Newcastle Gateshead Hotel, Gateshead, Newcastle, NE8 2AR

Sorry, this event has now ended.

Join us in Newcastle for our fourth annual conference for security professionals within research, further and higher education. This year’s theme "discovering the next generation of cyber security, together" will explore emerging trends and threats we face as a community. 

The two-day conference is our opportunity as network and security professionals in UK higher education, further education and research to network with peers, share best practice and address common challenges we all face together.

The core streams this year's event will cover include:

  • Governance
  • Compliance
  • Regulation
  • Business continuity and disaster recovery
  • Threat intelligence

What can you look forward to?

  • Day one: national and regional experts will present on a spectrum of high level security topics across the five core themes
  • Day two: a safe space where you can engage in frank and open conversations. Expect debate and discussion on controversial topics, secure in the knowledge that all information released will be kept confidentially and within the confines of the conference. It is very much a closed, exclusive experience. For this reason, exhibitors are not able to attend day two
  • Additional training opportunities: on Monday 4 November we're running two training courses in Newcastle so you can make the most of your stay - hands-on incident response training and penetration testing - think like a hacker. Once you've booked your security conference ticket, you will receive a 10% discount code for these.
