RANT Forum Manchester – We Broke the Industry!

21st September 2016


In September we’re back on the road and returning to Manchester for our next northern RANT Forum. Hosted in our usual Manchester haunt; Revolución de Cuba on Peter Street.

This time around we’ll be joined by Jay Abbott from Falanx Cyber Defence to bring you another evening of white-hot debate and thought-leading industry insight, all with a bit of food and beer thrown in for good measure.

We broke the industry!

InfoSec Rockstars, Bug Bounties, self-professed “hackers” and an almost cult-like status combined with a skills chasm and resource shortage like no other has created a monster. How the hell did we get here and how do we fix it?! Come along and share your thoughts.

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!

There's a genuine air of conviction (of the right sort) around the challenges you get from the audience when speaking at a RANT event. Quite happy to come away with two falls and a submission rather than the usual conference group therapy.
