The NIGF holds at least three events per year across different locations in the North of England and Scotland. These events are open to anyone working in Data Protection and IT Security and provide a forum for networking and learning more about how other organisations are implementing improvements in this area.
Events usually last half a day and are themed around a specific topic area. In addition, online webinars and networking opportunities will also take place between face to face events.
Here’s a list of our planned events. Seats are limited so if you would like to attend, sign up by clicking on the Eventbrite link (when it is available) in the event description.
The Northern Information Governance Forum is pleased to welcome Peter Loomes from the IASME Consortium who will be giving members the chance to find out more about the IASME Governance standard and CyberEssentials certification and how these can support improved governance and accountability within organisations and potential benefits and challenges of implementation. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions about these standards and also discuss how these might work in their own organisation and share their experiences of implementing these or other standards in the past.
If you would like to attend this event for data protection and IT Security professionals in the North of England and Scotland, which will be held at 2pm on the 29th October and are not already a member of NIGF, then please get in touch via email@example.com to be added to our members list.
Unfortunately due to the current Covid-19 situation, we have decided to postpone the next NIGF event, which was to be held on June 9th in Edinburgh. We are keen to ensure that our next event is in Scotland as planned with a focus on IT Security, so further information will be provided as soon as possible on a revised date for this event and any affect this may have on dates for the Carlisle event which was planned for 21st September 2020. In the meantime we will be reviewing our current website to ensure we can improve the way the Forum works in future and will provide updates on any new developments as and when they occur.
