Whether you work at a startup or in the information security department of a well-established company, you need to attend cybersecurity events to meet with the world’s leading cybersecurity experts and vendors. These events, where meeting with the latest technologies, expanding the knowledge base, and talking about innovative ideas, are held regularly every year.
We think that these conferences, which allow the opportunity to meet face-to-face with the cyber security industry leaders, are a great blessing, especially for CISOs.
So, without further ado, let’s move on to our list of the world’s most prestigious cybersecurity events.
10 Most Esteemed Cybersecurity Events

3. RSA Conference
It wouldn’t be too much if we say that the RSA Conference is the event that sets the world’s cyber security plan. Don’t be fooled by the fact that the event, held for 31 years, still has a “conference” in its name. They’ve been doing so much more over the years.
The RSA Conference is not just an environment where industry professionals come together to exchange ideas or introduce new products and solutions. It is like a compass for those who want to improve themselves in cyber intelligence.
This year the RSA Conference is in San Francisco, June 6th – 9th. If you haven’t registered yet, catch up before it ends: https://www.rsaconference.com/usa

5. The International Conference on Cyber Conflict (CyCon)
The International Conference on Cyber Conflict, aka CyCon, has a 13-year history. In addition to aiming to strengthen the cyber security community, it also stands out from other events with its structure that supports academic research on information security.
CyCon can be considered an interdisciplinary conference series that offers the opportunity to express themselves to many speakers who discuss cyber security from a technical, political, legal, military, and strategic perspective. For detailed information about CyCon: https://ccdcoe.org/cycon/
6. Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit
The Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit offers organizations new visions to profile risk and develop new defensive methodologies. It shows how they can rethink the changing cyber security needs of the changing age and put forward an actionable management approach.
Let’s take those who want to create a more agile information security architecture by benefiting from the ideas of both Gartner and the leading security leaders of the industry at the event held between June 7th and 10th this year: https://www.gartner.com/en/conferences/na/security-risk-management-us
7. IT Defense
One cyber security event that comes to mind when information security is mentioned is IT-DEFENSE. The difference of this event from the others is that it hosts top-class speakers who cover various topics with in-depth and academic interest, not through sponsorships or promotional lectures. It is a great pleasure to listen to these competent speakers who discuss cyber security technical, strategic, and easy-to-understand.
IT-DEFENSE, which should be followed by information security experts, software developers, hackers, and anyone interested in the subject, has passed, but looking at the 2022 program can give you an idea: https://www.it-defense.de/en/it-defense-2022/program
