In this resource we list, literally, every British Cybersecurity Conferences, event and seminar taking place this year and next. After the United States, the UK is the second most popular country for InfoSec Events. There are dozens of Cyber events in literally every niche with an emphasis on finance, cybercrime, SCADA and healthcare.
Is It Just A London Thing?
No! Whilst it is true that most Cybersecurity Conferences in the UK are held in London we’ve noticed that there are plenty of other events in Manchester, Birmingham and other prominent cities.
To search for InfoSec events taking place in other UK cities in 2020 just hit the links below.
You might feel somewhat swamped when deciding on which conferences to attend this year. If you do, then we’d encourage you to use our filter on this page which will help you search events by niche, date, as well as geographical region or city.
There’s no doubt that the UK is a major epicenter of Global Cybersecurity. We’d happily argue that Washington DC (Maryland) along with London and Israel are the three major drivers of Cybersecurity Resilience. The National Cyber Security Centre and its’ more highbrow GCHQ rule the waves with InfoSec Progression and Protection in the UK and for that, we are all thankful!
Attending Cybersecurity Conferences in the UK
Our research shows that the UK is second in having the most amount of conferences taking place in 2020. There’s no doubt that the UK continues to pioneer groundbreaking InfoSec research and one of the best ways to experience that is by attending Cyber events.
Whilst we don’t have any specific "best UK conferences to attend in 2020" resource, we’d certainly like to draw your attention to BSides London, Glasgow, and Leeds. We are also fans of the mini-conferences DEF CON event in London knows as "DC4420 Conference Series".
Another reason we’d recommend DC4420 (aside from having visited years ago) is that they happen (we believe) once a month! So, if you can’t make it this month then be sure to catch the friendly folk that attends next time! We’re biased in our mentioning of DC4420 because it’s more of a London-based Hacker Conference, and that’s what we’re into.
