WHAT TO EXPECT ABOUT MANCHESTER S.COM 2019

Helping Secure Digital Business

Manchester S.COM is designed to help organisations to better understand, plan for and implement sustainable security strategies that meet the pace and scale of today’s security challenge.

This is an educational event, creating thought-provoking open discussion, challenging vendor claims and equipping attendees with the practical resources and constructive tools to meet demands for a more secure digital business.

Most importantly there will be no product or sales pitches, this event will put the vendors in the hot seat.

Comments From Previous S.COM Events

I would say that the event was very well run, with a host of interesting and very knowledgeable company representatives. The technology used, and on display was excellent, and the informal atmosphere created enabled relaxed approach to networking and vendor discussions. I would certainly attend another event in the future.

Internal Audit Manager

Global Brewer

All the vendors were very agreeable, they didn’t push sales, they were enthusiastic about their products and the two different panels were fantastically well selected to gel together to produce excellent overall security coverage. Everyone was friendly and helpful and the location was perfect.
