If you thought symposiums on information security and risk were all the same, look again! COSAC is an entirely different experience. Conceived by practising professionals for experienced professionals, it is the most participative and productive event of the year.

Undoubtedly the world's best annual source of advice in Information Security, COSAC makes available to you, in a fully residential format, presenters and facilitators who are the very best in the world. Collectively they have many hundreds of years of practical experience, have published thousands of major articles and books, and have proven records of success all over the globe.


The 24th International COSAC will run from Sunday 1 October through Thursday 5 October 2017.

As a participative event, numbers at COSAC are strictly limited - jump to our registration page to book now! Participation is global - delegates come from across Europe, UK & Ireland, Australia, Asia, Africa and North America. Numbers are strictly limited in order to maintain high levels of personal attention, peer interaction and networking, and to maximise access to fellow experts.

High Value:

COSAC is run by volunteers not by a profit-seeking conference company. For similar registration fees to leading 2-day international events held in London, COSAC provides, in addition to a panel of world respected presenters and facilitators, 3 or 4 days of conference activities, luxury accommodation, superb evening meals, full breakfasts and lunches, receptions every evening and networking events - it even includes collection from Dublin airport.


COSAC provides a choice of 4 full day forums or Master Classes, world-leading plenary sessions and evening forums, and a wide range of conference sessions organised in 3 streams, with 2 optional half-day workshops. Participants average well in excess of 15 years direct experience in Information Security, Risk Management, or a closely-related discipline.


Unique Session Style:

COSAC sessions are designed to be fully interactive giving participants every possible opportunity to get involved with development and assessment of new strategies, solutions and research.

By the Profession for the Profession:

COSAC is organised and run by experienced volunteers from inside the profession not by a commercial conference company seeking profits.

No Time Wasting Sales Pitches:

At COSAC vendor pitches are strictly prohibited and participants are not required to run the gauntlet of an exhibition hall.

Refreshing Return on Investment:

Dedicated to ensuring your needs are met, COSAC provides access to a world-wide peer group with real experience in solving the challenges you face. Participants typically hold senior influential position, and have more than 15 years of experience each in the fields of Information Security, Risk Management, IT Management or Audit.

Truly Independent:

COSAC is entirely vendor neutral and the agenda is selected by the conference participants.

World Class Professional Networking:

COSAC provides a full programme of networking events and its fully residential format provides extensive opportunities to discuss the issues of the day.

Committed Sponsorship and Support:

We are grateful to our sponsors for what promises to be a unique and outstanding event.

Best wishes
