-Stephen McCormack - Maxol Limited

“ISO27001 Ireland 2016 was a very worth while event with engaging speakers and topics.
It gave insight, perspective and shared challenges. It is well worth taking time out of the office to attend. Often such conferences can have a slump in the afternoon. This one did not.
BTW: Another plus. The presentations were available ultra-quick as everyone marches on to the next thing’ Looking forward to the next one..”
