Call for Papers Information

InfoSec World is the “business of security” conference. To manage today’s threats, security practitioners—from entry-level admins to senior leadership—must have the skills to be both a business partner and business enabler as well as the technical skills to prevent, detect, and respond to security challenges.

For our 2019 event, we are looking for presenters and facilitators to cover topics addressing these themes:

  • Information Protection
  • Management & Strategies
  • Disruptive Technologies (IoT, AI, Blockchain, etc.)
  • Hackers & Threats
  • Governance, Risk & Compliance
  • Infrastructure & Operations
  • Cloud
  • Privacy
  • Hiring & Employee Retention

Alternative session formats such as facilitating a Security Roundtable or Tech Labs are available. To submit a Tech Lab, please visit our information page.
