The Cyber Security Summit Series began last 2013 in New York and is considered as one of the top 50 must attend conferences by the software company, Digital Guardian. If you’re living in the United States, you don’t have to worry about travelling far to attend because these conferences happens once every month in different cities of the United States. Joining the conference will earn you 6 CPE Credits and you will have the chance to connect to C-Level & Senior Executives who are responsible for protecting the critical infrastructures of their organization.
An event for C-Level Executives, gain better understanding on how to DISCOVER threats before they happen, PROTECT critical business assets and build a robust strategy to RECOVER from an attack.
Good thing about this conference is that they the organizers carefully select the topics and speakers to make sure that they provide the best quality to attendees. Major trends like Artificial Intelligence and Home Automation are discussed on this event.
The Digital Government Summit offers a staggering 150+ events each year for State and Local Government IT Leaders. If you’re working for the government, we encourage you to attend for one of the two reasons: Advance the goals of your organizations or for your own career paths.
ISC2 (the organization behind CISSP) also run a bunch of global Cybersecurity Conferences and Events – well, more like “mini-conferences”. We’re recommended ISC2 events this year owing to some positive feedback we’ve heard on our travels. Florida has a bunch of events this year so if you’re an InfoSec Expert living and working in Orlando we’d encourage you to get on down to this years ISC2 event.
Whether you are are new to the field or not, we recommend attending this conference because you’ll end up discussing and helping in improving the state of cyber security on both a domestic and international level.
Another conference for C-Level Executives which focuses on the current issues facing the industry. One of the features of this conference is the peer-to-peer Executive Roundtable Sessions that have been proven to be a great resource for executives which provides real answers to issues facing their organizations and industry.
Even though this is an invitation-only event, we like this conference because you will meet a lot of CXO level professionals where you will learn the current issues faced by Cyber Security Leaders and how to develop the next-level strategy.
Probably one of the largest information security event in the area where you will about the importance of information security. Good thing about the organizers is that they support the Cyber Patriot program that is geared toward getting high school students interested and involved in Information Security and provide scholarships to local schools in support of Information Security curriculums.
We like this event because it has a fun atmosphere while networking with your peers. Every year, GrrCon attendees are limited to 1500+.
