The NIS Directive issued by government to essential infrastructure providers has raised a myriad of questions about reporting and compliance.

At this flagship event, we'll walk you through the key points of the directive and share our thoughts on strategies to assist.

Our keynote speaker is John Noble, ex-director of GCHQ's NCSC who will be talking about the guidelines which were written by his team. We'll also be joined by speakers from industry. 

If you'd like more information about what the NIS Directive means for you and your organisation, this is a perfect forum to learn more in a small gathering of like-minded companies. Expect lots of opportunity for Q&A and discussion around the practical aspects of implementing the guidelines. 

The event is free to attend but places are limited, so please sign up early.
