Best CISO Conferences 2021 – 2022

"Best In Category" Series

Cybersecurity Leaders Summit

Most of the visitors to our tech security conference directory are CXO Level professionals, (CISO, CSO, CRO, etc.), so it stands to reason that we created this category and that I was to also create this list of recommended senior-level conferences and events. I hope you benefit from the list.

There are hundreds of Senior Cybersecurity Conferences within our directory: I have only included a bunch that I think are particularly excellent. I will be editing this list as the year progresses and notable conferences that match this category are submitted to our directory.

About This List

As the year progresses, we will add more recommended conferences for the upcoming year; usually, this is determined by events that are submitted to our directory.

If you work in this important sector, I strongly encourage you to attend these events. Some of these would be extremely important for you to attend.

American CIO and IT Summit
October 26th, 2020
United States

• Past Review •

The American CIO & IT Summit is clearly aimed at those working at a senior level within cyber security: CISO’s, CIO and all C-Level executives managing risk, privacy or indeed any aspect of security.

You can expect to learn the latest within senior-management expertise within Information Security and I suspect that the emphasis in the future will be on how to best work with the new normal following from the COVID pandemic of 2020.

CyberTech NYC

United States

• Past Review •

Attending CyberTech events is an excellent way of boosting your B2B network.

The folks at CyberTech, like many of the other C-Level security conferenes listed in our roundup, take place in various cities around the world.

As stated by the organizers, the main driver of attending a CyberTech event is that you’ll be able to network and learn the latest innovations in technology, different solutions to threats within the global InfoSec arena.

Cyber Security Summit: Los Angeles
December 10th, 2020
United States

• Past Review •

We have known the team at Cyber Security Summit for several years now and can attest to the quality and depth of their events. They are highly recommended events.

The conferences, many of which of course have been virtual in 2020, are invite-only and they always have some of the brightest minds speak on their circuit. Past speakers include government officials and representatives from the FBI.

In summary, make sure you go ahead and check out this years roster of events being organized by the folks at the Cyber Security Summit.

FutureCon New Jersey Cyber Security Conference
November 5th, 2020
United States

• Past Review •

FutureCon events are led by Kim Hakim, CEO/Founder, and are held in over 20 states around the United States.

Their conferences feature different CXO-level keynote InfoSec speakers who will teach participants the most recent security methodologies and how to manage risk in the ever-evolving changing cybersecurity threat workforce and workplace.

FutureCon, like Cyber Security Summit, are excellent events to attend as and when they come to your city.

SecureWorld Twin Cities
October 15th, 2020
United States

• Past Review •

For nearly two decades, SecureWorld has been providing a series of talks that are almost always engineered towards solving global IT security issues.

I’d consider SecureWorld as being aimed more to the corporate world compared to the slightly-more “Hacker” orientated conferences listed above.

Executive Alliance’s Security Leaders Summit DALLAS
December 3rd, 2020
United States

• Past Review •

Executive Alliance’s Security Leaders Summits is another conference series aimed at tech and Cybersecurity C-level professionals.

Like the other events, the intention behind their conferences is to share insights into the current status and future of cybersecurity.

Cybersecurity Summit: New York
August 18th, 2020
United States

• Past Review •

ISMG conferences take place in four continents, so they have a wide reach.

Typically their security events are aimed at the CXO level and focus on subjects such as fraud prevention, cybercrime, and other enterprise level cybersecurity issues.

The industries that ISMG conferences target are typically:

  • Government
  • Finance (FinSec)
  • Retail
  • Healthcare
  • Energy (SCADA/ICS)

The majority of the content is procured from the ISMG’s global editorial team and comes from their publications like BankInfoSecurity, DataBreachtoday, HealthcareInfoSecurity, and GovInfoSecurity.

Their publications, and events, as stated as very much aimed at the CISO/CSO level so if that fits your profile then I’d certainly recommend that you get to learn about ISMG.

The ISMG community has over 700,000 subscribers so you’ll be in good company.

CENGN Summit
November 12th, 2020

• Past Review •

Next Generation Networks organizes CENGN Summit.

CENGN Summit, like the other CXO-level conferences listed in my resource, is aimed at decision makers within Cybersecurity.

The CENGN Summit is one of Canada’s leading conferences devoted to promoting disruptive networking technologies; so if that’s an area you specialize in then you’d be very much at home at this event.

I included this senior level conference for our North American audience and those working in Canada.

World Legal AI Summit
October 8th, 2020

• Past Review •

Although this event is not strictly speaking an InfoSec event aimed uniquely at CISO-level executives, I’ve included this conference because the Luxatia Group specialises in B2B events.

The folks at Luxatia put on a bunch of fantastic events covering many industries (not just InfoSec) so I’d encourage you to learn more about them and see if an event fits your needs and interests.

✓ Previously Recommended In 2020
Legal Cyber Security Expo
December 2nd, 2020
United Kingdom

• Past Review •

I’ve included Legal Cybersecurity Expo because, by its’ very nature, this conference is aimed at senior decision makers.

We have a resource dedicated to listing some of the best legal conferences to attend, but I included this one because it is designed to help senior executives protect themselves against cyber attacks and threats. This event is co-located with Legalex, a conference designed to assist businesses to expand and evolve.

Data Connectors Nashville Tech-Security
December 10th, 2020
United States

• Past Review •

Data Connectors is in my opinion within the same realm as FutureCon, Cyber Security Summits and CyberTech.

Data Connectors have been organizing conferences in many states within the US since the early 2000’s. The team mostly invite C-level InfoSec and tech professionals who share their expertize on the latest cybersecurity threats and challanges.

As with other similar events listed in my resource, by attending expect to expand your personal network and learn a lot of actionable skills and tools.
