Our Recommended 2020 UK InfoSec Events

Every year we receive over 1,000 different Cyber Security events submitted to our site, and the majority of these take place in the United States and the United Kingdom.

So, because we are in the good fortune of having a bunch of organizers submit their events to our directory we’ve gotten to know a bunch of them. In the spirit of community, we, therefore, decided to share our experiences and list a “best UK events list”.

Is This A Top Ten List?

Sure, why not – but we don’t want to be restricted to ten. We certainly anticipate moving events to and from this list over time.

We’ve tried to make sure that the events are not only in London, however – as an FYI – we do have a dedicated 2020 London InfoSec Events List here.

Who’s Made The Grade?

If you’d like to see full UK listings for 2020 then hit this link. We’ve chosen these as being the most “in-demand” security events to attend in the UK:

BSides London

BSides London takes place in, funnily enough, London! BSides events (there are many) are excellent and “BSides London” will be no different. For those that don’t know, BSides is a chapter-based “franchise” that takes place in hundreds of cities throughout the world. BSides events are unique for being laid-back, very informative and rammed full of great content. I see there being two major benefits for attending BSides London, firstly, you’ll meet a ton of interesting InfoSec Professionals living and working in London (and thereby boost your personal network) and secondly, you’ll learn a lot as well. The content that is shared at BSides events are typically vendor-free and focus more on the pioneering side of research. Whilst we haven’t been to this event we’d imagine that it is one of the larger BSides events that take place within their ecosystem. One of the largest (or “best known”) events is BSides Vegas.


44CON

September 9th, 2020 - September 11th, 2020
Best of Breed, United Kingdom

The event (also) takes place in London. 44CON is complimentary to BSides and DC4420 as being a “UK Hacker Conference” with good reason; they’ve been very good at recruiting excellent speakers and creating a fantastic atmosphere. We’ve known about 44CON for many years now and have only heard positive things about the conference. One of the interesting things about 44CON is that (by my understanding) they’ve spawned into an “open all year” type of organization in the sense that they seem to offer InfoSec training throughout the year which is very interesting.
