Introduction: Why attend conferences?
This year will bring plenty of opportunities for professionals to attend conferences, getting them exposed to new products and tools showcased by companies active in the cybersecurity arena. The socializing opportunities afforded by such gatherings enable attendees to connect with industry experts while they network with like-minded professionals. It’s also during these events that participants will want to partake in hands-on activities, workshops and round-table discussions, enabling members to keep on the cutting edge of best practices and research in their field.
With many IT professions requiring a certain number of continuing education (CE) credits per year in order to maintain their certification or licensure, conferences may also provide some of those needed credits. How many depends on the session and if the conference offers it. This makes conferences an easy way to meet their personal development requirements.
Here is a list of some of the top IT security conferences available in the United States that are really worth your time and money to attend. As you’ll see, there are many options to choose from.
