(ISC)²’s 2018 Security Congress will take place October 8-10 in New Orleans. Last year’s sold-out event was in Austin and included 185 speakers and 2,000 attendees. We expect Congress in the Big Easy, as New Orleans is called, to be even bigger!
“Security Congress is built by the most prominent professionals in the cybersecurity industry – our members,” said (ISC)² Managing Director for North America Brian Correia. “It’s an annual event that’s uniquely aimed at the day-to-day cybersecurity practitioner. We had record attendance last year at our first independent Security Congress with 2,000 attendees, and we hope to grow the event tremendously in 2018.”
The theme for conference is “Enrich. Enable. Excel.” – which will encompass not only Security Congress, but (ISC)²’s focus for the entire year. Our goal at the event is to advance security leaders, by arming you with the knowledge, tools and expertise you need to protect your organizations.
We are accepting both individual and panel presentations. You can submit up to two proposals as a primary presenter, but can be a participant on additional panels. How do you get your proposal approved? Here are some helpful hints!
- Have a catchy title. Try asking an interesting question, or present a startling statistic.
- Keep it short. You’re limited to 125 words for your description, so make them count!
- Present learning objectives. List the three things attendees will take away from your session.
- Don’t sound like sales. Be sure your proposals are not sales or marketing-oriented, as (ISC)² remains vendor-neutral for the benefit of our members and the industry at large.
If you want to share your cybersecurity expertise with thousands of professionals – and enjoy some beignets and jazz – submit your proposal to be a speaker at 2018’s event. We’ll be accepting submissions until February 23, 2018. Get a jump on your new year’s resolution of speaking at an event and submit today!
