This year’s (ISC)² Security Congress – with the theme “Leaders of Tomorrow” – will take place September 25-27 in Austin, Texas at the JW Marriott. For the first time, Security Congress will be a stand-alone event, without former partner ASIS International.
“We value the partnership we had with ASIS International for the past six years, but it was time for Security Congress to stand on its own to address the programming needs expressed by our members,” says (ISC)² CEO David Shearer.
The cybersecurity conference will host more than 90 educational sessions, as well as a town hall meeting, career center and casual networking events. By hosting the event alone, (ISC)² can bring you more of what you want and expect from our event: rich continuing professional education (CPE) opportunities, vendors who understand your field and the chance to meet other members.
Our call for speakers remains open until February 24, and (ISC)² is encouraging leaders in cybersecurity to share their knowledge with attendees. All selected speakers receive a free all-access pass to attend the conference, as well as admission to the speaker’s reception. Speakers also receive discount pricing on pre-conference training.
Session proposals should offer strong content and actionable takeaways to ensure that seasoned cybersecurity professionals, as well as industry leaders, will benefit. All security and privacy topics and ideas are welcome, including the following:
- Cloud Security
- Cyber Crime
- Critical Infrastructure
- Diversity in the Workforce
- Governance, Regulation and Compliance
- Healthcare Security
- Identity/Access Management
- Mobile Devices
- People-centric Security
- Professional Development
- Research Findings
- Software Assurance & Application Security
- Swiss Army Knife
- Threats – Management, Detection & Intelligence
- Women in Security
