The aim of RANT is to provide a platform for all members to discuss and debate Information Security related issues in an open format. The relaxed networking environment provides guests with the opportunity to discuss relevant issues and to network with like-minded individuals. Launched over nine years ago,  RANT aims to provide the community with the opportunity to contribute to the topical and informative discussions with their experiences, opinions and questions.

RANT prides itself on being a completely sales-free zone and hence it is closed to security vendors and consultancies except for sponsorship. It aims to provoke participation and debate, and speakers at the RANT event are encouraged to discuss pertinent topics that engage our audience and stay true to the unique RANT vision.

The RANT event is held on the last Wednesday of every month in central London and quarterly in Manchester. Being a member of the RANT community is completely free, as are all of our events.

Great atmosphere and great conversation sparked by the RANT topic, irrespective of whether the speakers manage to hold their own or get demolished by the audience!

The other participants all seemed to be there to discuss, share and gain experience and it was refreshing that it didn't feel like anybody was showing off.
