A look back at 2022
CIISEC Live 2022 took place at the quintessentially Scottish Craiglockhart Campus of Edinburgh Napier University. The event took place across 3 days and received nothing short of excellent reviews with 100% of attendees reporting that they would recommend the event to a colleague. The event has even been featured as a ‘must attend’ cybersecurity conference by MSN and TechRadar Pro in their ‘top tech conferences guide for 2023’.

The 2022 event being situated in Scotland for the first time really allowed delegates and exhibitors alike to harness Scottish connections and to build new relationships within the Scottish Cyber Community. As the first CIISEC LIVE since 2019, we achieved our vision to bring the community together and focus on the networking and knowledge sharing aspect of the incredible talent our industry has to offer. We plan to do the same this year in Manchester. Here are some snippets from 2022, and we hope to see you in Manchester for an even bigger and better CIISEC LIVE for 2023.
