The Top 50 Must-Attend Information Security Conferences

By Nate Lord

Our list of the top 50 infosec conferences happening around the world – check them out and update your calendar!

Conferences are important events in almost every industry, giving professionals the opportunity to learn about new developments, get valuable insights from leading experts, and network with other professionals. In few fields do conferences play as important a role as they do in information security. This ever-changing industry places high demands on professionals to stay abreast of the latest best practices, trends, and research findings that impact their day-to-day responsibilities and help them perform at their best.

Information security conferences take place all over the world, with events happening year round. We’ve compiled this list of what we feel are the 50 most valuable, educational information security conferences that are must-attend events for leading professionals in infosec. The following 50 events are not ranked in terms of value or importance, but instead are listed chronologically, beginning with events that take place in January. Event series with multiple dates and locations are listed last, not to be interpreted as being of less value than those listed towards the beginning of the list.

Please note, some of these events have already taken place for 2015. They’re included here as established events proven to offer value to attendees year after year — meaning you should add them to your events list for 2016 and beyond. In these instances, we’ve listed the dates during which the 2015 event took place. Keep in mind that specific dates and locations can change from year to year. Be sure to visit event websites for specifics and registration information for 2016. Events that have not yet taken place in 2015 include the most up-to-date information available at the time of writing.
