Are student groups allowed?

Unfortunately, as this is a business-to business event, we cannot accomodate students/student groups.

“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.”
