A few years ago, SecureWorld Denver was held when the city was setting record highs for October. The temperatures outside were in the 80s.

This year, it's happening with snow in the air and highs running 30-40 degrees below average.

Somehow this makes the collaboration and idea sharing at the seventh annual cybersecurity conference even better. And the gathering has moved to The Cable Center.
