Channel Islands Security Conference 2014: From Cyber Threat to Opportunity

The Channel Islands Information Security Forum (CIISF) are giving business leaders and security professionals an opportunity on 30 May 2014 to address the cyber security agenda with world-renowned security experts at the Royal Yacht Hotel in St Helier, Jersey.

The Channel Islands Information Security Forum (CIISF) exists to promote understanding of information security, cyber security and privacy, and work towards a global centre of excellence in the islands.

Lunch & Headline Conference 12-4.30pm

Headlining some of the leading names in security, join us for informative and engaging seminars and debate on how to respond to the cybersecurity challenge.

The event will help both business leaders and security professionals understand the rapidly changing cyber security threat landscape, and provide practical tools and insights to help you respond successfully.

Combining leading UK speakers with local insights, this one-day event is your opportunity to gain the advantage and learn how to respond wisely and positively to a complex challenge.

Who should attend?
Cyber security is one of the highest profile topics on today's board agendas. However, without the right insights both business leaders and professionals can find developing the right response to be an insurmountable task.
