The programme is jam-packed, we have keynote lectures, sound-bite talks and presentations as well as activities and demonstrations.

We aim is to showcase and present many different aspects of information security,  the achievements and the widely recognised contribution of the ISG in the field of Information Security, as well as current opportunities for cyber security training and research.  There will be an exhibit of one of the famous Enigma Machines from Bletchley Park, which were used during World War Two and there are talks and activities on a variety of themes from our research groups: cryptography, smart cards and the Internet of Things, systems security, people and security, and many more!

Parking spaces will be freely available on campus, you will be able to enjoy free refreshments on our newly built Founder's Square, and a street food lunch in the iconic Founder's building quad.
