London Cybersecurity Conferences In 2018

In this resource we list a bunch of regular events that take place in the UK each year. The events on this page are for 2018.

What’s This Post All About?

We list a ton of information regarding literally everything to do with Cybersecurity Conferences; indeed, you might even suspect that’d be forgiven for thinking that we are obsessed with this subject matter.

When we first started our conference directory we noticed that the majority of events take place in the United States, India – but – we also discovered that the UK (especially London) hosts a plethora of InfoSec Events so we felt somewhat compelled to this specific London Cybersecurity Conferences resource.

Other Resources For The UK Cybersecurity Conference Space:
– See Our Resource For Events in Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, Glasgow (and our favorite city in the whole world) – Edinburgh!
Mega Update!!!

In this resource we’re going to tell you about popular (and worthwhile) Cybersecurity conferences and events that take place in London each year.

This post is a ‘work-in-progress’; so we will almost certainly be adding, editing and yes possibly even removing events over the coming months and years – so don’t be fooled by the original published date of this post!

If you are interested to learn about InfoSec Events, Conferences and Seminars that take place in London then you’ve come to a useful resource, and one that we hope you enjoy and use. We should also quickly mention that this list is by no means complete; indeed, these are only the ones that we’d recommend.

Why And How Did We Select These Cyber Conferences?

The ‘why’ is based on fundamentally two criteria: firstly, is the conference reputable?, i.e. does it attract well-known and interesting speakers?

Secondly, does the conference happen each year or frequently? If the answer to these two questions is ‘yes’ then we will definitely consider adding it to this resource.

The ‘how’ is simple – either the event organizer contacts us, or, we found out about it and added it to this page.

Can I Add My (London) InfoSec Event To This Page?

Of course you can and we actively encourage it.

All you need to do is submit a form here.

#1 44CON London
Conference Location: UK, London
44CON London

Background to this event
Our list of London events starts with a bang: 44CON. 44CON is, like many other cyber conferences, a blend of training and speaking; indeed two ‘functions’ that really are the same thing, i.e. ‘education and learning.’ For cybersecurity learning and education then 44CON certainly provides enough of each of those ‘functions.’ If you live and work in cybersecurity in London then this a great venue to network and recruit local talent. Of notable interest, the organizers of 44CON state that one of their goals is to “encourage that delegates have time with the speakers, who are all willing to spend time and talk about their work.”

#2 Annual Industrial Control Cyber Security Europe
Conference Location: UK, London
Annual Industrial Control Cyber Security Europe

Background to this event
Also taking place in London is the annual ICS/ SCADA Cyber Security event. Typically this event takes place just after summer and the discussions revolve around vulnerability, mitigation, threat detection and planning for Utilities, Oil, Gas, Water, Power, Nuclear and Smart Grid sector. Methods in which organizations can further enhance priorities, methodologies, supply chain, etc. will also be discussed. Clearly if SCADA is your thing and you work in London then we’d recommend that you get yourself involved in this event.

#3 IP Expo Europe (Cyber Security Europe)
Conference Location: UK, London
IP Expo Europe (Cyber Security Europe)

Background to this event
These events are mega – and they are FREE! We’d absolutely recommend that you get yourself down to one of these events. They do actually take place throughout Europe and not just in London so be sure to check out there upcoming event listings. In the words of the organizers: “IP EXPO Europe 2016 incorporates six IT events under one roof – Cloud, Cyber Security, Networks and Infrastructure, Data Analytics, DevOps and Open Source. This year’s event will be the most comprehensive business-enhancing experience for those across the IT industry, including IT managers, CTOs, CDOs, network and storage engineers, CISOs, data analysts, developers and communications specialists.”

#4 Cyber Security Expo London (‘Job Recruitment Fair’)
Conference Location: UK, London
Cyber Security Expo London (‘Job Recruitment Fair’)

Background to this event
This isn’t really a cyber conference, rather, it’s a Job Recruitment event – but we’ve added it because these events do take place each year and they are an excellent resource to share and they do often have good talks and speakers too. As we all know there is a massive global demand for Cyber Professionals, not least in the UK.

#5 CSX Cybersecurity Nexus Conference Europe
Conference Location: UK, London
CSX Cybersecurity Nexus Conference Europe

Background to this event
We are sure that you’ve all heard about ISACA, if not, then they are a similar outfit to ISSA and ISC2. We’ve added their event because like the other ones listed on this page they take place each year. ISACA has been an decades long contributor to cyber security so we’ll always help them out to get the message across in the UK.

#6 RANT Conferences and Events
Conference Location: UK, London
RANT Conferences and Events

Background to this event
These guys are friends of ours and they organize very intimate and friendly cyber events in London, and also other parts of the UK (but please check that!). Their annual conference (which takes place in London Town) offers an educational networking and open discussion platform for 300 senior end user information security professionals. “Real-life, pertinent and controversial industry topics in a lively, entertaining, and sometimes irreverent manner will be discussed” – say the organizers!

#7 National Security & Resilience Conference
Conference Location: UK, London
National Security & Resilience Conference

Background to this event
Moving on to a slightly more ‘high-brow’ event is the annual “National Security & Resilience Conference” which takes place in London, UK. This cyber conference tackles recent issues and threats facing government agencies, organizations and businesses, and “thought provoking discussions on strategies and innovations to ensure your company meet these changing challenges.” Probably aimed more at the CISO, CTO, CIO level in our opinion.

#8 World Congress on Internet Security
Conference Location: UK, London
World Congress on Internet Security

Background to this event
Last but certainly not least is the World Congress Annual Internet Security event that like all the others above takes place in London. The WorldCIS (as it is abbreviated) is an international event that is “dedicated to the advancement of the theory and practical implementation of security on the Internet and Computer Networks.” You can think of these events as being more academic and theory based.

Do You Want To Be A Speaker In London?

It’s easy.

All you have to do is apply yourself, commit some time and you’ll be speaking at a conference in London in no time at all. Everybody has a story to tell and unique experience and the chances are high that your knowledge should be shared in front of an audience.

What’s The Benefit At Speaking At A Conference?

We know that you’re smart enough to list out a bunch of obvious reasons why speaking at a conference is a fantastic idea; anyway – here are a few to share:

  • Speaking at a conference puts your career networking on overdrive;
  • Associating yourself with subject matter is (obviously) a great idea;
  • Your boss will love you

So, How Do I Do It?

You’d contact conference organizers and ask whether they have a ‘Call For Papers’ (CFP) requirement. CFP’s are how conference (event or seminar) organizers plan and populate their events. In short: they need people like you!
