Cybersecurity Conferences and Events in India

In this post, we take a look at Cybersecurity Conferences taking place in India, specifically throughout 2019.

All events and conferences that are listed on this page are in descending order.

Cybersecurity In India

According to the United National Global Cybersecurity Index (GCI) India is ranked 23rd in their rankings (however please bear in mind that rank hasn’t been updated for 2019).

There’s no doubt that India’s Cybersecurity community is booming. Growth in the InfoSec space in India is expected to be driven by dozens of government initiatives towards digitizing (modernizing) key economic sectors. The┬árapid uptake of Social Media, Mobile, Analytics, Cloud & IoT technologies et al have all boosted the demand for cybersecurity solutions and services across the country.

Cybersecurity Conferences in India

By our reckoning, there are over 40 major Indian InfoSec events in Mumbai, Delhi, and Hyderabad. There are also a decent amount of events in Bangalore, primarily due to the fact that over 35 percent of all the IT companies present in India is located within that region.

Inevitably, with tech being such an important driver to the Indian economy it is hardly surprising that Cybersecurity Conferences are also growing in tandem with events.

In addition, NULLCON also takes place in Goa, India and as far as InfoSec conference locations goes it is difficult to beat Goa as a venue!

How Do We Select These Events?

It’s actually very simple. We just take a look at the quality of speakers, the longevity of the event, the subject matter and a few other variables.

When an event is added by a conference organizer we make a decision as to whether it should be awarded a ‘recommended status’. If it is, then it is automatically included within this post. You can learn more about our process here and about our company here.
