It may only be November, but as it's the last Manchester RANT of the year then we may as well have an end of year/Christmas celebration. As usual we'll have somthing very special lined up for you, cocktails will be involved.
We'll be having a short discussion with Tenable Network Security about 'Shadow IT', and how its making organisations vulnerable to attack.
5:30pm - Registration | 6:15pm - Discussion begins | 7:15pm - Food served, networking and drinks continue until the close at 10:00pm
Questions? We've got the answers:
Who can I contact with questions?
Luke can help at firstname.lastname@example.org
What if I've registered but can't come/want to send someone in my place?
Don't worry if you can't make it, just let us know! Likewise if you want to send someone in your place. Just make sure they meet our entry requirements.
What are your entry requirements?
I’m glad you asked, RANT is a community of information security professionals who work at end-user organisations, so no vendors or consultancies please!
Do I have to bring my ticket to the event?
We have a top-of-the-range delegate tracking system, (Luke with a clipboard and pen), so all we need is your name and you're good to go!
This sounds like a good event but I don’t know anyone!
We know how difficult it can be to start a conversation with people you don't know, we've all been there.
But don't worry, everyone attends our events to achieve the same goal: to talk about the industry, meet new people, and partake in a beer or two en route to said goal.
We encourage you to grab one of the RANT team and we'll do our best to introduce you to people who we think might interest you. If It’s your first time or you don’t know anyone, just let one of the team know prior to the event or at the front desk when you arrive. Or just shout “Tom!” loud enough and he will come and find you.
We've been running these types of event for 10 years now and we're quite proud of the community we've managed to build up over the years. We're certain you'll find the quality of the networking you can achieve at a RANT event unparalleled and a great way to dive deeper into the industry with your peers.
What is RANT? What’s the angle?
The RANT Forum provides a unique platform for the Information Security community to discuss and debate real-life, pertinent and controversial industry topics that encourage participation and controversial debate. All RANT Events operate under the Chatham House Rule. It's an opportunity for everyone to voice their opinions, views and suggestions throughout the talk in a relaxed environment and to network with likeminded professionals. You can have a beer on us too!
RANT prides itself on being a completely sales free zone and hence it is closed to security vendors and consultancies except for sponsorship.
RANT sounds awesome and I want contribute! How do I do it?
That’s great! We are always looking for interesting speakers, partners, sponsors and ideas to help our community to continue to grow. Just grab one of the team or drop an email to email@example.com so we can discuss things further.
