Submission Guidelines

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.

Selection Criteria

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 Structure

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.

Speaker Benefits

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many CPE credits do we earn?

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). 

How are the CPE credits submitted?

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.

Can I attend any of the conference tracks?

Conference access is based upon the type of registration you choose. There are three types of SecureWorld registrations:

  • OPEN SESSIONS: Includes access to Keynote sessions, industry expert panels, vendor presentations, select breakout sessions, and the Exhibit Floor.
  • CONFERENCE PASS: Includes access to Keynote sessions, industry expert panels, vendor presentations, all conference sessions, and the Exhibit Floor. This registration includes lunch and 12 CPE credits for two-day events, and 6 CPEs for one-day events.
  • SECUREWORLD PLUS: Includes all the access of the Conference Pass, as well as an additional extensive training track built around a specific subject. This registration includes lunch and 16 CPE credits for two-day events, and 12 CPEs for one-day events.

Do you supply conference presentations to the attendees?

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.

Can we record sessions?

Audio or video recording of sessions is at the discretion of the individual speaker. Obtain permission if interested.

How do you select conference speakers?

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:

Do you validate parking?

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.

What is your refund policy?

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 for assistance.

Do you sell the attendee database?

No, we do not sell our attendee database.

How much time should I allow myself for check-in?

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.

What does a VIP Pass include?

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.

Can I attend only one day of the two-day events?

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.

Are student groups allowed?

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.”
