Thank you all so much for helping make the 2014 Secure360 Conference a success! We had record attendance this year and our speakers and sponsors blew us away with their amazing contributions.
The conference kicked off on Monday with three different, hands-on pre-conference sessions. Attendees were given one-on-one attention as they learned about penetration testing (sold out session!), reverse engineering of malware samples and participated in emergency management mock exercises.
On Tuesday morning, the halls of the River Centre were packed with conference goers ready to hear Paul Douglas speak. After Douglas prepped us on how to prepare ourselves and our clients for the effects of climate change, attendees went their separate ways to attend their first sessions of the day – in all we offered over 40 sessions on Tuesday! The day wrapped up with a session on mass shooting events and a police K9 demonstration.
Despite the sunshine on Wednesday, everybody was back in the River Centre by 8 a.m. ready to listen to former White House CIO Theresa Payton speak about the importance of cyber-security. After her charismatic and personable keynote, once again, attendees had the opportunity to choose from over 40 break-out sessions. A fan-favorite was the lock picking demonstration after lunch given by Babak Javadi. The conference ended with the Geek Girls teaching us all the importance of social media and personal branding (yes, even in the security world!).
Throughout the conference our mobile app and Twitter feed were going non-stop with comments. Here are a few of our favorites:
