Top IT security conferences you should attend in 2020

Introduction: Why attend conferences? 

Conferences are a great way to gain information and knowledge about advances on cutting-edge technologies but are also opportunities to meet and connect with industry-foremost experts. Participants, in fact, can learn of innovative ideas and new solutions as well as share experiences of security challenges with like-minded people.

With so many conferences happening every year, how can professionals pick the right symposium? Here are a few things to consider:

  • Where’s this conference (North America, Europe, Asia) located?
  • What’s the cost to attend?
  • Who will be the speakers from the security industry?
  • Who organized it?
  • Which workshops will be available?

As expected, there are many different information security (infosec) and cybersecurity (cybersec) conferences in 2020 and you may have trouble deciding which ones are going to benefit your business or personal interests. In order to make it easier to find the right conferences for you, here’s a list of options by month.
