UK Information Security Conferences, 2020

Every UK InfoSec event in 2020 is automatically streamed into this resource

Legal Cyber Security Expo

 December 2nd, 2020 - December 3rd, 2020
 Recommended Event

We love these super-niche events and this is clearly aimed at Legal Cybersecurity Professionals, or perhaps better said, lawyers that have an interest in InfoSec.

Enterprise Security and Risk Management (ESRM) November

 November 25th, 2020  

ESRM not only explores traditional security such as loss and prevention, but it also explores technological trends and competences, cyber risk deterrence and response, as well as leadership and business strategies.

Cyber Security & Data Protection Summit 2020

 November 19th, 2020 
 Recommended Event

The United Kingdom is without question a city that pioneers with Cybersecurity research and cutting-edge protective measures. This conference, which takes place in London, is on our view one of the best events of the year. If you are working within IT Security then we’d absolutely encourage you to attend this event.

Digital Expo Manchester

 November 4th, 2020 - November 5th, 2020
 Recommended Event

One of the largest events in the United Kingdom. It is aimed at practitioners who are working in the cybersecurity, AI, cloud, and infrastructure, IoT, data analytics, blockchain and software development field.

BSides London

 October 24th, 2020 
 Recommended Event

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.

Cybersecurity and Fraud Summit: London

 October 20th, 2020 
 Recommended Event

This meeting will span four continents and the focus of the topics to be discussed will be fraud and breach prevention in different sectors such as the government. You will be able to learn from industry influencers as well as interact with them and generally be a part of the cybersecurity and fraud summit community.

Cyber Security for Critical Assets (CS4CA) Europe

 October 6th, 2020 - October 7th, 2020
 Recommended Event

Accelerate your cybersecurity techniques by attending this conference to discover the important issues facing Information and Technology environments.

Technology Leaders Club UK CISO Summit 2020

 September 20th, 2020 - September 22nd, 2020
 Recommended Event

This is part of a series aimed at Senior IT Security Professionals. If you are one, then go ahead and check out this security event as well as the others taking place by the same organizers this year.

44CON

 September 9th, 2020 - September 11th, 2020
 Recommended Event

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.

Fraud and Financial Crime Europe

 September 1st, 2020 - September 2nd, 2020
 Recommended Event

This event is aimed at Cybercrime Professionals in London. If you work in this field and want to learn more on how to combat cybercriminals, then this event would be ideal.
