2019 is a year where we need to sit up, listen and book tickets to several cyber security events- and not just for the freebies.
Cybersecurity is edging its way into every facet of our daily lives and we must try and get as much information, make as many connections and be at the cutting-edge of every legal, political and economic cyber security update.
The best way to do this, is to rub shoulders with (or listen to) the top dogs in the industry, and all of them will be attending at least a few events this year.
Here are our top five cybersecurity events of 2019:
Cyber Hub Summit: Atlanta, Georgia
September 11 - 12, 2019
If the 2018 Summit, is anything to go by, the Cyber Hub Summit is an absolute must – packed with thought leaders, workshops and break-out sessions, this event is the perfect place to schmooze with the most updated and innovative minds in cyber security.
The top challenges will be discussed, analyzed and dissected and a perfect atmosphere is provided for C- level executives to build relationships and grow cyber know-how.
Women in CyberSecurity (WiCyS) 2019: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
