The Risk and Network Threat Conference

We are pleased to announce that the next RANT Conference will take place on 9th July 2015 at the London Hilton on Park Lane.

The RANT Conference provides a unique platform for the End User Information Security community to discuss and debate real-life, pertinent and controversial industry topics in a range of formats that encourage participation and controversial debate. All RANT Events operate under the Chatham House Rule. By attending the RANT Conference you are guaranteed a full day of enlightening and informative presentations and intriguing and interactive panel debates presented by a selection of the industry’s best thought leaders, evangelists and entertaining speakers.

It is a chance to network with likeminded professionals in an informal environment. Guests are encouraged to pitch in with their opinions, views, and suggestions throughout the talks.

Why Attend?

If you have been to one of our monthly London RANT Forums over the past eight years, or have heard of the London RANT Forums, you will have discovered that we like a controversial debate, we like interesting speakers, we like real life examples of hot, challenging topics and, of course, we like to have a beer and a chat in the pub with the Infosec community. The annual RANT Conference provides a full day of just this, but replace the beer with coffee for the first couple of hours at least!

The annual Conference will cater for 250 delegates and, as most places for the 2014 event were taken up very quickly, we recommend that you register as soon as possible.

Who Attends?

The RANT Conference is for Information Security Managers, Directors, CISO’s and other senior information security and risk professionals who work within End User organisations.  Please click here to register now.
