Description

IISP & Cyber Security Challenge UK: Cyber Career Development Event

As part of the IISP Academic Partner Programme we are inviting students studying within Universities to a free Cyber Security Career Development Event to look at how the profession is evolving, what are the most sought after skills, how leading organisations are meeting their skills deficit and most importantly, what you should be thinking about to take charge and frame your personal career development. We will also be running a series of workshops which will be bookable once you have signed up to register.

Tickets for the event will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.



Our all-day event will show you:

  • Where our profession is heading
  • What leading employers are looking for
  • Which cyber security skills are scarce
  • What to expect when you join the industry
  • How to best manage your career
  • An opportunity to meet with practitioners & employers


On the day:

We welcome you to come and meet with your professional Institute and gain invaluable information about the state of the profession and what you need to consider in your career.

There will be a series of talks on the hot topics for those either currently studying for an information security related degree or those about to enter the profession.

Our speakers will include leading practitioners from the worlds of commerce and academia – which will both inspire and assist you in deciding which direction your career should take.

The day will end with an open question and answer session with our guest panellists, followed by an opportunity for you to meet with several of our corporate member organisations who are sponsoring our event.

Refreshments will be available through the day & lunch is provided.

On the evening:

We welcome students to stay through to the evening and we also welcome recent job/career changers or new starters to come along and learn about the profession and where your career may lead to.
