Summary of Cybersecurity Conferences Happening This Week [Week 47, 2016]

Henry Dalziel | Information Security Conferences | November 22, 2016


This post is a summary of Information Security (InfoSec) events, conferences and meetings that are taking place this week: business week# 47 (November 21 – November 27, 2016).

Here’s our updated list for (all events) for 2017.

Here’s the week’s latest cyber security conference, event news & recommended talks:

Cyber Security for Critical Assets MENA Region, November 21 – 26, 2016, Dubai UAE
The conference, which takes place in the Middle East, will connect senior level thought leaders across the Oil and Gas, Energy, Utility, Chemical and Petrochemical, Water and Aerospace industries (i.e. SCADA/ ICS), and allow them to discuss industry challenges, share experiences and investigate the best practice guidelines; moving from recovery-focused to proactive and forward-thinking discussions that will bridge the gap between government, IT and OT senior leaders. Clearly if you work in Saudi Arabia or Oman – two countries that are prominent in SCADA/ ICS and cybersecurity then we’d recommend that you go to either this event or the one in 2017.

Cyber Security Conclave, November 21 – 23, 2016, Hyderabad, India
There are a ton of cybersecurity conferences in India and this is one that we think is particularly interesting since it addresses hacking prevention, incident handling, forensics and post-event public relations. This event lasts for two days and, according to the organizers, it “brings together hundreds of cyber security experts, senior officials and policy-makers from across the public and private sector to provide an update on cyber security instances; all of whom share best practice strategies designed to help India combat cyber threats”. The Twitter handle for this event is: @SCSC_event

North Africa Oil & Gas Security and Risk Forum, November 23 – 24, 2016 Rome, Italy
Interestingly here’s another SCADA event that is also taking place this week. The forum will bring together policymakers, oil and gas industry leaders, risk managers and technology and security experts to discuss and assess the political and security dynamics in the North Africa region.

All-over-IP Expo 2016, November 23 – 24, 2016, Moscow, Russia
We don’t list too many events in Russia so we are glad to have this one in our weekly summary: the New All-over-IP Expo 2016, which according to the organizers delivers innovative content that is relevant to the industry’s challenges, goals and targets; enhances services to revolutionize networking, leads generation, customer ROI and visitor experience; creates new business opportunities; converges market players into a community.

Conference on Cybersecurity, November 25, 2016, Cambodia Phnom Penh
This will be the first Banking Conference on Cybersecurity dedicated to the Banking and Financial Sector in Cambodia that is co-organised with the Association of Banks in Cambodia (ABC) and prestigious partner Deloitte. We have a list of other cybersecurity conferences and events that take place in Asia here.
