Cyber Security and Data Protection Conference

Cyber security and data protection conference

The Islands Data Governance Forum and the Channel Islands Information Security Forum (CIISF) is kicking off an exciting cyber security awareness month in October with an engaging headline conference featuring local experts and renowned off-island keynote speakers.

Data Protection and Cyber security are team games, in which everyone has a part to play. From the headline speakers to the least technical in the audience – this event will teach all something new.


Join us in person in Guernsey at Les Côtils. We also aim to provide a remote option for off-island attendees who are unable to travel. Please note that capacity both in person and online is limited, so we recommend signing up as early as possible.
