The National Information Security Conference (NISC) is Sapphire's flagship event and each year brings together professionals to discuss current and evolving information security issues and threats.
NISC is one of the largest security specific conferences held in the UK each year and promotes all aspects of Information Assurance. Since 2000, NISC has attracted delegates from throughout the UK and Europe with various job roles from Audit and Finance, IT and Information Security, to Assurance, Policy and Compliance. The agenda covers all aspects of Information Assurance related issues and is open to all decision makers from both the public and private sectors.
