#1 DC / Metro Cyber Security Summit
Conference Location: USA, Washington, DC

Background to this event
Organized by a very professional and friendly team, these events are packed full of career-networking opportunities as well as Interactive Panels, Round Tables Discussions and more! You can expect to meet CISO’s, CTO’s and CIO’s. If you work as a CXO in Washington DC then this is absolutely an event that you should consider. Also worth mentioning that the organizers have events in Atlanta, Dallas, DC / Metro, Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles.



#2 CIO Washington D.C. Summit
Conference Location: USA, Washington, DC

Background to this event
Whereas the Cyber Summit USA event in DC takes place in June, this ‘CIO Event’ is scheduled for November and we suspect that it is an annual event. Organized by CDM Media, this event is also a CXO level cyber seminar. If you live and work in Cyber Security within the DC Metro Area then you should consider attending this event especially since all delegates will have similar ‘war-stories!’



#3 BSidesDC
Conference Location: USA, Washington, DC

Background to this event
Happening around October time is BSides DC. BSides is awesome and by far the DC chapter will have a ton of fantastic speakers and as ever these events represent a great opportunity to network. One of the main differences with this particular BSides event is the amount of people organizing it. There are a ton of cyber professionals living and working in DC that have a vested interest in BSides DC so as ever with BSides you’ll learn a lot. SANS NetWarswas also associated with BSidesDC, along with a CTF event, lockpicking, ‘Destruction Village’, Internet of Things Village, a Gaming Village and a Crypto Village.



#4 SANS Cyber Defense Initiative
Conference Location: USA, Washington, DC

Background to this event
We believe that this event takes place around December each year. SANS events, for those that don’t know, are superb information security training opportunities that take place throughout the US as well as other countries. Their event in Washington DC titled “SANS Cyber Defense Initiative (CDI)” offers hands-on, immersion-style cyber security training courses taught by real-life experienced practitioners. One of the things we like most about this event is their NetWars Tournaments.



#5 Billington Corporate Cybersecurity Summit
Conference Location: USA, Washington, DC

Background to this event
Next up is the ‘Annual Billington Corporate Cybersecurity Summit’. This event took place May 21st 2015 and is likely set to continue in 2016 and onwards. If you want to get into the senior Cybersecurity management (CISO/ CTO/ CIO etc) then this is a recommended conference. The President’s emphasis on cybersecurity in the State of the Union(January 2015) stems from the onslaught of major breaches impacting Sony, Target and Home Depot among others. Like the other conferences listed above, the Billington Corporate Cybersecurity Summit is another excellent cybersecurity networking opportunity to attend if you live and work within the New York region.
