About ISSE

Information Security Solutions Europe (ISSE), Europe’s leading independent, interdisciplinary security conference and exhibition, was founded in 1999 as an initiative of EEMA and the European Commission Directorate General Information Society.

Aimed at ICT security professionals, governments and legal communities wishing to understand more about specific aspects of ICT security ISSE brings together international experts from industry, research and politics to discuss interdisciplinary, technical, organisational and legal aspects of information security.

From 1999 to 2016 EEMA and TeleTrusT worked together with the successful format. TeleTrusT held responsibility for the management of the ISSE Program Committee, compiled the conference programme and awarded the TeleTrusT Innovation Award. In 2016 TeleTrusT decided to move forward in a different direction and will no longer be associated with ISSE.

From 2017 ISSE will continue with EEMA taking responsibility for the conference programme and organisation of the event.
