The 9th European Cyber Security Conference 2022

This conference will be held under a Hybrid Format. To ensure the health and safety of our speakers, attendees, sponsors and staff while maximising interaction amongst participants, in-person attendance at this event will be limited to 120 attendees.

There will be a significant in-person component to this event with demand likely to be high. If you are interested in participating in the conference in person we recommend that you apply for your spot as soon as possible. For those not attending on site, sessions will be live streamed to our events platform.

We will continue to monitor developments around the COVID-19 pandemic, follow recommendations regarding masks, social distancing, and sanitation set out by the venue and local authorities and may revise the capacity limit based on the advice received.
