itSMF Ireland are running our first conference in conjunction with
ISACA. As a member of the board of directors of itSMF Ireland,  I am delighted that we have the opportunity to run this event for our members. We are looking forward to hearing from some excellent speakers.

The event is open for both members and non-members of itSMF Ireland and ISACA. The cost for attending the event represents great value for money considering how much other day long events and conferences cost.
