Advent IM helps celebrate IISP’s 10th anniversary 


The Institute of Information Security Professionals (IISP) celebrates a ten year anniversary in October and Advent IM Ltd are joining the celebrations as Gold Sponsors of the commemorative event.


The celebration plans for the tenth anniversary of the Institute are well underway and Advent IM Ltd – Independent Information and Cyber Security Consultancy, today announced their sponsorship of the evening event in London on October18th 2016.


Advent IM Director and IISP Member Mike Gillespie said, “We have been keen supporters of IISP for many years. We know the part the Institute plays, and will continue to play, in helping security professionals and businesses develop and enhance their information security knowledge and practices as the threats to one of our most important corporate assets – information – continue to evolve and challenge organisations. The threat is not abating and the skills gap we are currently experiencing in the cyber security industry means we have to maximise every opportunity for training, growth and enhancement of our policies and procedures. But every once in a while it is great to take stock of how far we have come, in terms of our capability, our reputation and our professionalism. That is why we at Advent IM are delighted to have the opportunity to be Gold Sponsors for IISP’s tenth anniversary celebration. It will be a time to reflect on the great work the Institute has done in the last decade and to consider the future with continued confidence and enthusiasm.”


With the growth of cyber threat and cybercrime, the world is increasingly aware of the need for good quality, security professionals to help secure its assets and people. The IISP is a professional membership body that represents and focuses the professionalism of many cyber security experts.  Working with business, government and academia alike, it has spent ten years raising standards and providing a touchstone in the fight against cyber and information threat.
