Summary of Cybersecurity Conferences Happening This Week [Week 35, 2016]

Henry Dalziel | Information Security Conferences | August 30, 2016

There is normally a pause in cyber security conferences between September and early 2017, not a bad thing since it allows us all to surface for air and try and digest everything we’ve learned! So, as a result, there’s not really a ton of events happening this week – but here goes:

Here’s a round-up of Cyber Events and news that caught our eye:

Here’s a round-up of talks and videos that caught our eye:

So, from week #35 (August 29th – September 4th, 2016) we note the following:

The Air Force Information Technology & Cyberpower Conference, August 29 – 31, 2016, 201 Tallapoosa St, Montgomery, AL 36104, United States
The Air Force Information Technology & Cyberpower Conference brings together Air Force IT experts, prominent IT academics, and America’s “best cybersecurity vendors” for 3 days of exhibits. According to the organizers this event hosts, “…speakers, education, and discussion about the ways we can better defend America from cyber-attacks, advanced persistent threats, and proactively lead in this in this increasingly digital world…” Sounds good enough to us. Obviously, if you work in a Cyber Military capacity (and have the associated military clearance) then attending this event is a no brainer.

IBM i2 Summit For A Safer Planet, August 30 – August 31, 2016, Capital Hilton, Washington, DC, United States
This is actually quite an interesting event and we’d encourage you to check it out. The organizers claim that you’ll hear; “….directly from experts who are using all forms of data, including “dark data,” to outthink threats…” Anything ‘dark-web’ related always sounds interesting. IBM also claim to offer to present “…innovative and advanced intelligence analysis solutions [to] outthink physical, fraudulent and cyber threats; and optimize emergency preparedness and response…” Interesting….check it out if you’re in the DC area this week. Hit the link to see if they still have tickets. Also! They’ve got Frank Abagnale talking! For those that don’t know – get to know.

The 9th International Workshop on Digital Forensics, August 31 – September 2, 2016, 5412 Puch, Austria
The goal of this workshop is to give a relaxing environment that promotes discussion and exchange of thoughts while giving a sound academic backing. The workshop also concentrates on addressing security applications such as fraud prevention and investigation, log analysis, policy and governance.
