Cyber Security Conferences

Cyber security conferences or seminars are crucial for continuous learning. But the number of annual held cybersecurity events is immense. So on this blog page you will find an opinionated collection of exiting cyber security events worldwide.

I love conferences that are open. This means open access to slides or videos for everyone who is interested in a subject , but was unable to attend. My experience is that conferences that have pay walled access to conference slides, videos or proceedings are seldom worth the effort. It are often not only the talks but the conversations with peers that make it really valuable to go to an in-person security conference or meetups.

Please tip me if you have a non-commercial cybersecurity conference that you would like to see in this collection.
