What do we collect and why?

When you register for a BOPSIG event or join our mailing list we collect the following personal information from you:

  • First & Last Name,
  • Company (optional)
  • Email Address

We collect your personal information in order to:

  • Ensure the venue is a suitable size for the number of attendees.
  • Produce a personalised name badge for the event (to make it easier for you to network).
  • Send you additional/updated event details.
  • Send you confirmation/reminders about the event you have registered for.

For those that subscribe to our Mailing List we will also send you emails once or twice a month to inform you about upcoming BOPSIG/Cyber Security events in the region that may be of interest to you.
