SIG-ISM: Information Security Management

Developing security expertise and excellence within the NREN community​.


SIG-ISM offers CISOs (Chief Information Security Officers) of national research and education network (NREN) organisations the opportunity to share best practices and learn from each others' experience, to safeguard their NREN against security incidents and threats.

 

The CISO role has become increasingly important as organisations become almost totally reliant on IT information systems. As the role of NRENs expands and the range of services operating across the networks grows, information security is vital ​and users will expect NRENs to safeguard their network connection, online assets and resources against security threats and risks.

 

Taking part in SIG-ISM can help equip NRENs with the skills to manage information security within their research and education community.
