Secure360 has grown significantly every year, and in 2016 we were excited to announce and host our first expansion events. If you have currently attending Secure360 in the past, or you’re just hearing about our events for the first time, here’s a quick run-down of our conferences to help you plan which event you should be attending!
In 2016, after seeing the significant success of the Twin Cities event and the need for security discussions across the region, the UMSA board approved the first expansion events—one of which would take place in Wisconsin. In its first year, Secure360 Wisconsin received good feedback on how to make the event better.
This year Secure360 Wisconsin has moved to the Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee on October 11-12 to better fit our attendee and sponsor needs. The lineup of great speakers includes: Charlotte Tschider covering contracting for security, Bryan Strawser covering actions taken in the incident of an active shooter, John Dickson covering adapting AppSec in a DevOps world, and more!
Here’s why you should attend: If you’re an infosec professional in the Midwest and you missed the Twin Cities event due to time or travel distance, then Secure360 Wisconsin is right for you! Located in Milwaukee, this event will be perfect for professionals located in Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa and Indiana, and will feature over 30 speakers and 30 sponsors to network with and learn from!
In 2016, the UMSA board also discussed and approved a student-focused infosec event that was catered to college students in the industry. In February 2017, the first Student360 event was hosted and had an even bigger attendance than expected—confirming the need for infosec events and discussions that were directed towards college students.
College students came from schools all across the state of Minnesota, and some even traveled from schools in Wisconsin to attend. We received plenty of positive feedback, with students excited to share how beneficial his event was.
Here’s why you should attend: From networking, career and resume help, and plenty of quality sessions on cyber security and risk management topics, this event is a must-attend for college students who are completing or have finished their degree.
Our 2018 event is already set for February 24 in Bloomington, Minnesota. Learn more here.
