Recommended US Events, 2019

December 11th, 2019

(ISC)2 Security Congress
October 28th, 2019 - October 30th, 2019
South, USA » Florida
ISC2 (the organization behind CISSP) also run a bunch of global Cybersecurity Conferences and Events – well, more like “mini-conferences”. We’re recommended ISC2 events this year owing to some positive feedback we’ve heard on our travels. Florida has a bunch of events this year so if you’re an InfoSec Expert living and working in Orlando we’d encourage you to get on down to this years ISC2 event.
October 10th, 2019 - October 11th, 2019
South, USA » Georgia
Hacker Halted was literally the first ever Cybersecurity Conference we ever attended in Miami and we’re fans of the “Hacker Halted” series that they’ve been running since, we believe, 2012. We like these events because of the duration and commitment they’ve shown to the community. If you work in the Cybersecurity industry in Atlanta, Georgia, then we’d encourage you to get involved.
October 8th, 2019 - October 9th, 2019
Midwest, USA » Illinois
Live and work in Digital Forensics or Cybercrime in Chicago? If yes, then get yourself down to this event. Taking place in mid-October, this Cybercrime Conference promises to be rammed full of valuable content for Security Professionals.
Techno Security & Digital Forensics Conference San Antonio
September 30th, 2019 - October 2nd, 2019
South, USA » Texas
This is another Digital Forensics Conference that we’re recommended this year. Along with MANUSEC USA in Chicago, we also think that this event has a bunch of awesome speakers and a depth of valuable content relating to Cybercrime and Forensics. If you live and work in the Forensics industry in San Antonio Texas then clearly this is a must attend.
USENIX Security Symposium
August 14th, 2019 - August 16th, 2019

We ran a test and the USENIX (The Advanced Computing Systems Association) domain was registered 21 years ago. Yup, that’s impressive, as is their commitment to IT and the Security Industry.
DEF CON 27
August 8th, 2019 - August 11th, 2019
West, USA » Nevada
Needless to say, DEF CON is a major event on the InfoSec event calendar. We’ve always recommended the DEF CON hacker conference as a must attend since 2013 when we first started this directory. FYI, we published a post a while back relating to other Hacker Conferences in the US, UK India and Israel which you might find of interest.
Black Hat USA
August 3rd, 2019 - August 8th, 2019
South, USA » Nevada
Black Hat and DEF CON used to be the same organization and were both founded by Jeff Moss. DEF CON is still more of a HackerCon whilst Black Hat went a bit more corporate, but, having said that Black Hat USA, Europe, and Asia are must-attend events for any serious Cybersecurity Practioner. We’ve always listed Black Hat events are “recommended”.
June 25th, 2019 - June 28th, 2019
South, USA » Maryland
We’ve added this as a recommend Security Event in DC because of the four clear speaker tracks the organizers have put on, which are: Digital Identity, Customer Identity, ‘Devices and Things’ (which we take as being IoT, Enterprise and Identity Security and Privacy. If any of these niches are up your street and you live and work in DC then we’d encourage you to learn more about this Conference.
23rd CISSE: Colloquium for Information Systems Security Education
June 10th, 2019 - June 12th, 2019
West, USA » Nevada
Strictly speaking, this is not an Information Security Conference like the others in our directory but we think it is worthy of being recommended owing to its longevity. This event, like many other InfoSec Events, takes place in Las Vegas
Ignite Conference USA
June 3rd, 2019 - June 6th, 2019
South, USA » Texas
We’ve flagged this as being a particular good Cybersecurity Conference to attend in Austin, Texas. The main focus seems to be on Network Security, Endpoint Security, and Cloud Security.
Techno Security & Digital Forensics Conference
June 2nd, 2019 - June 5th, 2019
South, USA » South Carolina
This is a four-day Digital Forensics Conference taking place in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Our understanding is that this Conference attracts some of the brightest minds, not just from the US, that are pioneering research in Digital Forensics.
May 31st, 2019 - June 2nd, 2019
Midwest, USA » Indiana
There are not that many Cybersecurity Conferences that take place in Indianapolis so we’re delighted to list this as being a recommend event for 2019. We’ve recommended this Security Event because it looks like it could be a lot of fun.
Recommended UK Events, 2019
July 16th, 2019 - July 17th, 2019
The UK Cybersecurity Conference has presentations from what appears to be a bunch of innovative researchers coming from over 50+ countries! if you live and work in Cybersecurity in London then we’d certainly encourage you to consider attending this event.
31st Annual FIRST Conference
June 16th, 2019 - June 21st, 2019
We’ve included this event in our UK recommended events of 2019 because of its’ longevity within IT Security. The organizers have gone a long way to ensuring that so many Cybersecurity niches are covered. If you live and work in Edinburgh, within Cybersecurity, then we’d certainly encourage you to attend this conference. The other amazing thing about this event is that it lasts for five days which, as far as we know, is one of the longest InfoSec events to take place in the United Kingdom.
June 4th, 2019 - June 6th, 2019
This is one of the UK’s largest Cybersecurity Conferences of 2019 so we’ve obviously had to include this one. This conference has over 400 vendors. Whilst not strictly speaking a “conference” in the traditional sense this event does have a ton of talks.
Cyber Security & Cloud Expo
April 25th, 2019 - April 26th, 2019
This event is the largest and most attended Cloud Event. We might be wrong in our assumption but we feel that this event is likely one of the biggest Cybersecurity Cloud events in Europe.
IoT Tech Expo Global
April 25th, 2019 - April 26th, 2019
Say no more: this is the (apparently) world’s ‘largest’ IoT event and we believe them. Judging by the number of speakers they’ve brought together it’s likely that this is a larget IoT event in the world, certainly in the UK. If you are at all associated with IoT then we’d certainly recommend that you attend this event; and that’s why its been included in our “recommended UK InfoSec List for 2019”.
April 24th, 2019 - April 25th, 2019
This is the most “high brow” Cybersecurity event in the UK since it is organized by the British Government (via NCSC and GCHQ). There’s no doubt that you’ll rub shoulders with some of the brightest minds in the UK Cybersecurity Industry. If you’re looking to network and work for the GCHQ then we’d certainly recommend trying to get yourself to this event. If you do attend this conference we’d love to hear all about it so please drop a comment below.
Cyber Security Manchester
April 3rd, 2019 - April 4th, 2019
We’re adamant to include as many events in the UK as possible that take place outside London and here’s one that jumped out: “Cyber Security Manchester”. Worth also noting that there’s a BSides Manchester as well.
Security and Policing
March 5th, 2019 - March 7th, 2019
This is a real “Spooks” kind of event with it being an official UK Government Cybersecurity Conference. Get an invite and you’ll meet some pretty interesting folk. If you do attend then let us know how you get on by dropping a comment in our event page that lists more info (link below).
Cyber Defence & Network Security (CDANS)
January 29th, 2019 - January 31st, 2019
We’ve labeled this as a “recommended event” because of their Cyberwarfare Panel of speakers, including, Major General John B. Morrison, Commanding General of the US Army Cyber Centre of Excellence, Air Commodore Tim Neal-Hopes, Head Joint User C4ISR & Cyber UK Ministry of Defence and Mr. Donald Heckman, Principal Director, Deputy CIO for Cybersecurity in the US DoD.
International Conference on Global Security, Safety & Sustainability
January 16th, 2019 - January 18th, 2019
We recommend this event for 2019 because it encompasses everything to do with Cybersecurity. Northumbria University, which has an excellent Cybersecurity Programme, has created an excellent conference. We’ve also included this UK InfoSec event in our recommended list because of Brexit; there’s no doubt that a Hard Brexit will have severe security issues for the United Kingdom.

December 18th, 2019 - December 21st, 2019

October 13th, 2019 - October 13th, 2019
Taking place in Indore, India, this is a fascinating Cybersecurity Conference that focuses on AI and Robotics. This event is certainly one of the more interesting ones taking place in 2019.
October 11th, 2019
We love BSides events. We like them because they’re a great opportunity to meet local Professional InfoSec Practitioners.

Typically BSides are either free or are priced affordably.
c0c0n Hacking and Cyber Security Briefing

Kenes Exhibitions Cyber Security Conference
September 4th, 2019 - September 5th, 2019
If you have an association with Cybercrime in India and live in Hyderabad, then this is an event that you ought to attend.

International Conference on Machine Learning, Image Processing, Networks and Data Sciences (MIND)
March 3rd, 2019 - March 4th, 2019
