8. Risky Business Event

Date TBC

In recent years, IRM started producing “Risky Business” reports. We gather the thoughts and ideas of info security and cybersecurity professionals from across the globe with a simple survey. The survey results allow us to present back to the industry the latest thought-leading opinions and trends. Soon we will release the Risky Business Survey to begin collating trends for 2019. Additionally, we will announce the findings of the survey with an event. If you are interested in completing the survey and/or attending the Risky Business Event, please register your interest by emailing hello@irmsecurity.com. We will update this page with more event information soon.

That’s all of our events for now, but keep an eye on this page for the latest additions as the year progresses. If you have any questions about upcoming events or IRM services, get in touch.
