Free To Attend InfoSec Events For 2020

Henry Dalziel, Co-Founder InfoSec Conferences

– C|EH, Security+, MSc Marketing Management;
– Cybersecurity Pro & Growth Hacker
– Lives in Hong Kong
– Connect on LinkedIn

Kinda obvious, but who doesn’t like free?

It’s always quite a challenge making these niche-or-theme related Cybersecurity Conference lists for 2020, because they’re tricky to update. So, to get around that, what I’ve done is I’ve created a system in which every event that we have tagged as being “free” will be streamed into this resource.

If you would like to add your event please do so here, or if your event is free then let us know and we will change your listing to be included within this resource.

It’s also likely that some of these events have been canceled due to Coronavirus but as many of our community will have realized by now, a lot of these events have been placed online.

January 2020

Annual PCI London Summit
January 23rd, 2020
United Kingdom » London
FinSec
If you work with PII then this PCI Conference in the UK will float your boat. This is a must-have skill and necessity within ecommerce hence why we’ve pinned it to our homepage.

Securing the Law Firm Summit, Special Session
January 23rd, 2020
United Kingdom » London
FinSec and Legal
Cybersecurity Legal Conferences are relatively rare so we jumped all of this one to pin it to our homepage and certainly one we’d recommend. There are dozens of examples of Law Firms being hacked, not least the Panama Papers hack which whilst not strictly a “Law Firm” it has close associations within that space.
