Best Web Application Conferences 2021 – 2022

"Best In Category" Series

European Identity

Web application security is central to the operations of any online business, eCommerce site, or indeed anything at all that’s online. The ubiquitous nature of the Internet means that hackers can discover vulnerabilities and attack weak points. I generalize greatly but in essence, the importance of securing your web app is obvious. Attending a conference, virtual, or “in-person” is clearly key to your success as a software developer or programmer.

In this post, like all the others in our “best-of” series is a mix of all the events that we’ve found in our directory for this year.

Like all other security events in 2021, the majority of all conferences including Web Application events (DevOps/SecOps) were all converted to virtual.

So far, I’ve identified none, but don’t worry, this section will be populated with events as the year rolls on. Typically by Q1 2021, this section will get filled up!

These are the events that I’ve flagged as being the “Best Web Application Security Events of 2020”. We’d like to extend our thanks to the organizers for having (for the most part) submitted their events to our directory and also to wish them the best of luck for 2021 and beyond.

This list will be updated as new and notable Web App conferences are submitted to our directory.

About This List

As the year progresses, we will add more recommended activities for the next year; usually, this is determined by conferences submitted to our directory.

If you work in this vital area, I highly urge you to attend these events. You must attend any of these activities.

Conference Summary

This is one of the premier Cybersecurity events taking place in Norway. If you’re a security professional in Norway then we’d certainly recommend that you attend IT-SECPRO.

SANS Open-Source Intelligence Summit 2021

United States
More Info & Event Link

Conference Summary

SANS put on a lot of security mini-events every year – most of them are security training events.

I’ve happily included this Web Security Conference (“Application Security”) because of its’ emphasis on Open-Source Intelligence.

This (OSINT) Summit brings together leading security experts and investigators that will share proven methodologies and tools that can be applied to collecting OSINT data for analysis. This is useful because OSINT is part of the Web Application Process, i.e. understanding what’s out there and what’s been looked at for vulnerabilities by hackers is all-important to know.

Conference Summary

I’ve added this event because it’s by OWASP.

Frankly, I could have included any of their dozens of security events but I added this one to share some love for security events in Ireland!

For those working with any niche with SecOps and DecSecOps then events like this are extremely helpful.

All OWASP events – here’s a list – are highly recommended for security professionals involved with any type of penetration or defensive responsibilities.

I’ve also added the OWASP Foundation in our Cybersecurity Companies list.

The Web Application Security conference is an event rammed full of tutorials, and two days of security talks, and countless opportunities to mingle and communicate through virtual cocktails, online gaming, and web-based board games comprise the highly engaging format!
