About the group

Information and Communications Security technology is a growth industry in a rapidly changing environment - we help people to come together and develop new solutions to meet these challenges. We arrange regular meetings that take the lead in identifying new areas for innovation in security technology.

Our approach is open and collaborative with participation from government agencies, manufacturers, engineers, consumers, business and legal experts.

We highlight the importance of security engineering in all relevant industries including communications, consumer devices and national infrastructure.

Our meetings provide a convenient platform to network with key people and to gain access to the latest issues in ICT security whether you are a manufacturer, service provider or enterprise customer of devices and services.

We aim to create the initiatives that keep businesses from making the news for the wrong reasons.
