International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems, April 11 – 14, 2016, Michaelerkuppel, 1010 Wien, Austria
We don’t get that many cyber events happening in Austria so it’s great to have this one in our list – espeically this very unique event.

Likely you haven’t heard much about ‘Cyber-Physical Systems’ (CPS), so let’s take a quick moment to explain what they are: Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are integrations of computation, networking, and physical processes. In summary, “embedded computers and networks monitor and control the physical processes, with feedback loops where physical processes affect computations and vice versa”. So, if that sounds like your area then clearly you need to follow up on events happening in Wien, Vienna, this week!

The objective of ICCPS, the ACM/IEEE International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems, is to serve as a single-track forum for reporting advances in all aspects of cyber-physical systems. To learn more about CPS hit this link.

Australian Cyber Security Centre, April 12 – 14, 2016, 31 Constitution Ave, Canberra ACT 2601, Australia
The Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) Conference will bring cyber security experts from Australia and abroad to discuss the latest trends, mitigations and advances in cyber security. This event from our understanding is typically attended by government types so it could be an excellent networking oppotunity.

QuBit 2016 Cybersecurity Conference, April 12 – 14, 2016, Na Porici 42, 110 00 Praha 1, Czech Republic
QuBit is a cybersecurity community event for cyber industry professionals and academics that [their words] “….creates a unique Central European hub supporting the growth of new ideas…” Their mission it appears is to maintain an atmosphere of “community spirit” where cyber pro’s meet and talk cyber stuff! Sounds like an excellent event.

SANS Threat Hunting and Incident Response Summit 2016, April 12 – 19, 2016, 300 Canal Street, New Orleans, LA 70130, United States
The Threat Hunting & Incident Response Summit 2016 focuses on specific hunting and incident response techniques and capabilities that can be used to identify, contain, and eliminate adversaries targeting your networks. The organizers claim that by attending this summit, as well as all the other SANS events, you’ll learn skills directly from incident response and detection experts who are uncovering and preventing the most recent, sophisticated, and dangerous attacks against organizations from 2015 to the present day, April week 15, 2016.

Rock Stars of Risk-Based Security, April 12, 2016, 18980 Upper Belmont Pl, Leesburg, VA 20176, United States
This conference is a practica; and ‘hands-on’ event. Rock Stars of Risk-Based Security (which is possibly one of the best names for cyber conferences out there) addresses real-life cyber threats and importantly, how to prepare your organization from the threats. All speakers are experienced within the cyber risk-based security niche.

APAC Cyber Security Summit 2016, April 14 – 15, 2016, 183 Jalan Bukit Bintang Kuala Lumpur 55100 Malaysia
In their own words, “….APAC Cyber Security Summit will be the largest gathering for “C- Level” security professionals to network and discuss latest cyber security strategies and improve collaborations with various relevant stakeholders to prioritise the protection of critical infrastructure…” Clearly an excellent event for networking, not least if you live and work in Asia. Singapore isn’t that far away so if you can’t make this year’s APAC event book your calendar for next year’s 2017 APAC Cyber Security Summit!
