Information Security Interest Group

We are a professional interest group for people working in information security in Aotearoa. Membership is informal and in 2023 we continue to host casual monthly events, usually including short presentations from members of the community.


If you're interested in joining us at one of these events please e-mail and we'll add you to the mailing list. For the Christchurch group please see the Meetup page. In general talks will start about 6:00 PM but people usually arrive from around 5:30 to socialise.

Currently we accept local members only, you may be asked to verify your location so we can point you towards the right ISIG chapter.

Mailing lists:

ISIG operates an announce-only mailing list to advise members of upcoming meetings in Auckland, Hamilton and Wellington. To join the list or unsubscribe please e-mail

There is also an IRC channel where ISIG members sometimes hang out available at ircs://

"We promote awareness and understanding of information security issues in an independent and unbiased manner"
