“I felt it was a very good event with lots of technical and practical advice for those embarking on or in the process of ISO27001 certification. I wish I had attended a similar event before we started our project as it would have saved me lots of time.”

-Stephen McCormack - Maxol Limited

“ISO27001 Ireland 2016 was a very worthwhile event with engaging speakers and topics. It gave insight, perspective and shared challenges. It is well worth taking time out of the office to attend. Often such conferences can have a slump in the afternoon. This one did not. BTW: Another plus. The presentations were available ultra-quick as everyone marches on to the next thing’ Looking forward to the next one.”
