The computer was invented to hack. Remember that Alan Turing’s Enigma machine was created to breach the German High Command Cryptography. With that being said we can all appreciate that this subject-matter is at the core of everything related to Cybersecurity and Information Security. I hope you enjoy my list of recommended Cryptography events and conferences.

Conference Summary

The RSA conference is a regular calendar fixture for cryptologists and Cybersecurity professionals. It would be strange not to include the RSA conference in our cryptology conferences “round up” because, after all, the event itself is named after one of the most important cryptology innovations.

Whilst RSA conference has evolved into dozens of tracks cryptology still remains at the core all of this must attend conference for cryptologists.

The RSA conference takes place at the start of every year, and also now takes place in other cities around the world.
