(ISC)2 Announces Inaugural Security Congress for EMEA 8-10 Dec in London

Call for presentations open for (ISC)2 Security Congress EMEA 2014, a unique international platform for information security professionals

London, U.K., 12 June 2014: International information security professionals have a unique opportunity to meet, learn, and get ahead of industry developments with the announcement of the inaugural (ISC)² Security Congress EMEA. Organised in partnership with MIS Training Institute, (ISC)² Security Congress EMEA 2014 is the first multi-day conference within the Europe, Midde East and Africa (EMEA) region to be hosted by (ISC)²® (ISC-squared), the largest not-for-profit membership body of certified information and software security professionals with over 100,000 members worldwide. Submissions for presentations are now being accepted until 4 July for the 8-10 December 2014 event, which is to be held at The Bloomsbury Hotel in London.

“(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.”

Set to the overall theme of Strengthening Cybersecurity Defenders, (ISC)² Security Congress EMEA 2014 is open to all interested industry professionals. Building on the experience of the US-based (ISC)² Security Congress, now in its fourth year, (ISC)² Security Congress EMEA will offer a comprehensive seminar programme, over five focussed tracks, a pre-conference day of training workshops, and special interest sessions, along with a gala dinner. Keynotes and plenaries will be complemented by a broad review of current industry concerns in the following tracks: Governance, Risk & Compliance; Mobile Security; Human Factor; Architecture; and Data Security.

(ISC)² Security Congress EMEA 2014 is the latest development in (ISC)²'s successful and growing global event programme, which currently includes 14 one-day (ISC)² information and software security events held in major cities throughout EMEA.
