Best Security Transport Conferences 2021 – 2022

"Best In Category" Series

Privileged Access Management

Cybersecurity is becoming increasingly important for logistics. We have to only look at the carnage that COVID-19 caused to the logistics infrastructures we have in place and cybercrime (“hacking”) of those networks and systems can reap untold mayhem. I’ve seen an increase in the number of transport events being posted in our directory and here’s our recommended list of transports events this year.

About This List

As this year rolls out we will add more recommended events for next year as well; typically this is dependent on conferences that are submitted to our directory.

If you work within this important sector then I’d encourage you to get involved with these events. Some of these would be vital for you to attend.

This list is regularly added over the course of the year.

Past Recommended Transport Conferences

Automotive Cybersecurity Online
October 6th, 2020
United States

• Past Review •

As the technology fueling the connectivity of autonomous vehicles continues to develop so does the necessity for security.

If you work in the automotive industry from a Cybesecuuirty perspective then you can certainly consider the Automotive Cybersecurity Detriot event as being a premier conference to attend.

The folks at IQ Automotive (organizers of this event) have a lot of events planned for 2020 (most of which are virtual) so be sure to check them out. The one we have listed, I believe, is one of their larger ones.

These events typically attract CIOs, CISOs, product owners, chief engineers, heads of cybersecurity and enterprise from OEMs, tier 1s, disruptors, and all automotive community stakeholders.

• Past Review •

The automotive industry in China has been the largest in the world in terms of automobile unit production since 2008 and although we saw demand plummet in 2020 due to COVID-19, we can expect their annual production to continue to exceed that of the European Union, United States or Japan.

The China Automotive Cyber Security Summit (ACSS) is one of the larger international events.

If interest to tech professionals within this space the ACSS also facilitates introductions between automotive OEMs, tier 1s and network and cybersecurity solutions provider meeting to discuss ways to secure discovered and potential vulnerabilities

Typical discussions often revolve around enterprise-level safety, upcoming automotive legislation and regulations, end-to-end cloud safety, and many other automotive topics.

WCX (World Congress Experience) is one of the leading automotive events of the year.

The 2020 event was pushed online (but I could be wrong with that), but we ought to see this automotive conference being back to normal in 2021.
