The next Scottish branch of the Institute of Information Security Professionals (IISP) event on the 4th will be kindly hosted by Napier University in Edinburgh (room F.29 at the Merchiston campus) and will have 2 speakers:
IISP Member - Matthew Pemble: "Preparing for the End - Data Destruction". Matthew is a popular speaker at many conferences and events and from two aspects of his day job has a pretty unique take on this topic. Find out more at Idrach's website.
IISP Programmes Manager and Chief Operations Officer - Triona Tierney: "The IISP Graduate Development and University Outreach Programmes" - if seriously considering information security as a career this talk could be invaluable.
Kickoff is from 6 for 6.30. Please do come along and support your local branch, join in the lively discussion, and meet fellow IISP members in your area. For more information and to register for this meeting, please email email@example.com
The best source for joining instructions/maps etc is the Napier Merchiston page - it includes a link to Google Maps.
