Event Details

Following an extended absence from Edinburgh, the Scottish branch of the IISP are delighted to have secured an alternative venue in the big smoke: The Mad Hatter, just round the corner from Haymarket Station.

Please save the date: 13/06/2017 and note that this is a Tuesday and not our "normal" Wednesday slot. Kick off is at 18:00.

As usual, the event is open to all information security professionals, whether members of the IISP or not and tickets remain free.

Following the press coverage of WannaCry, a small part of this meeting will be devoted to a debate on over-reaction versus proportionate action. Needless to say, the fact that the patch had been out for about six weeks, but hadn't been installed on many systems tells one story. The fact that Microsoft released a patch for Windows XP tells another. Was this entirely the fault of the NSA? Was it over-due?

Following this, an update from the Accreditors' Forum will be provided.

Admittance is strictly by pre-registration only. For Health & Safety reasons you must register, as we have to provide the number of attendees to the venue.

Please note: BladeSec IA Services are administrating this event on behalf of the Institute of Information Security Professionals. Any information you provide to BladeSec IA will not be used for any purpose except as required to keep you informed of the event and to help you. Your contact information will be provided to the IISP following the event.
