Discover our 2018 Conference Theme

“Prediction is very difficult, especially if it’s about the future,” says the Danish proverb. But the process of predicting—challenging and uncertain as it is—is always worthwhile. And there’s no time like now for our InfoSec community to be doing exactly that. We can’t afford not to.

Which is why we’ve made this the theme of our 2018 conference season: “FAST FORWARD ⏩ Predicting & Preparing for Our Cyber Future.” Join us as leading futurists, innovators, and defenders cast a vision for what’s ahead in cybersecurity in 2018, and the decades to come!
