SecureWorld conferences provide networking with results.
Speaker opportunities are available to non-vendor end users, consultants, and analysts. Limited speaking opportunities are available to exhibiting vendors.
For speaking opportunities, please note that the speaker submission form is required to submit all proposals. Click below to download the form, then submit your proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All submissions should include a title, a brief abstract of the proposed topic, and the speaker's bio.
Please define the target audience (i.e. CISOs, security directors, IT auditors), and the level of intended audience knowledge: Introductory or Advanced, and Technical or Non-Technical.
Please identify the specific city(ies) where you are interested in presenting and any date preferences or scheduling restrictions.
Submissions will be selected based upon the relevance and timeliness of the topic, the depth and organization of the abstract, and the qualifications of the speaker.
Conference sessions are divided into three time slots on the conference days. Sessions are scheduled to maximize the breadth of options available to attendees and to avoid overlapping topics.
Speakers receive a Speaker Conference Pass, which provides access to all standard sessions, keynotes, panels, and complimentary lunch. Additionally, speakers will receive extensive exposure in the SecureWorld conference program and on the SecureWorld website. Speaking at SecureWorld creates an excellent opportunity to meet and network with fellow presenters, colleagues, and peers. Speakers are not provided a speaking fee nor reimbursed for travel costs.
If you have additional questions about the submission process, please contact the Director of Content at email@example.com.
Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits are available for Conference Pass and SecureWorld PLUS level attendees. Our two-day events provide 12 CPEs with a Conference Pass, or 16 CPEs if you attend an additional PLUS course. One-day events provide 6 CPEs with a Conference Pass, or 12 CPEs if you attend an additional PLUS course (held the day before the conference).
SecureWorld submits CPE credits to (ISC)2 on your behalf if you are a speaker, Advisory Council member, or a Conference Pass or SecureWorld PLUS attendee and provided your CISSP number during registration. Please allow 8-12 business days to see these credits reflected. You may submit CPE credits to other organizations, but approval is pending each certifying body.
Conference access is based upon the type of registration you choose. There are three types of SecureWorld registrations:
Presentation slides that we receive from speakers are uploaded to the conference app and microsite. However, we do not receive slides from every speaker, and distribution of presentation material is solely at the discretion of the individual speaker.
Audio or video recording of sessions is at the discretion of the individual speaker. Obtain permission if interested.
Speakers are referred and evaluated by our Advisory Council members in each market. This group is comprised of executive level security professionals from business, government, education, and law enforcement. If you have information or referrals, or know someone who would like to submit a (non-vendor) recommendation, please contact our Program Director, Kerry Nelson: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parking is not included as part of the registration fee. Parking fees are determined by each individual venue. Please refer to the venue information located on our specific event pages.
SecureWorld does not issue refunds. However, we are happy to transfer your registration to another person, or issue credit for a future event. Please contact SecureWorld registration at 503-303-7861 or email@example.com for assistance.
No, we do not sell our attendee database.
The highest volume of traffic at Registration is just prior to the first sessions on Day 1. Please allow 15-25 minutes before the first session starts. Our goal is to make check-in as quick and easy as possible. To help in this process, please use the online registration system in advance; this will speed up your check-in process on site.
The VIP Pass includes access to the full conference agenda (excluding SecureWorld PLUS), as well as an invitation to Advisory Council functions (roundtable discussions and kick-off breakfast). If you are interested in being part of our Advisory Council and attending VIP sessions, please contact one of our event directors for assistance.
Yes, you may; however, you will only receive CPE credits for the day you attend. We do not sell one-day passes for our two-day conferences.
Unfortunately, as this is a business-to-business event, we cannot accomodate student groups. However, individual students in IT and security fields are welcome to attend.
“In the nine years that I've participated on the Advisory Council, what amazes me is that SecureWorld is that local event where I get to see and catch up with almost every regional security team once a year. SecureWorld has also become one of the must-attend local conferences for myself and teams. It is an affordable conference for the whole team and provides quality content.”
