Keynotes from the public and private sector brought the infosec community together as InfoSec World set all-time records for attendance and sponsorships
New York, NY, October 3, 2023 – In its 29th year, Infosec World, the industry’s leading educational event for senior-level information security (infosec) and cybersecurity professionals, returned to in-person delivery in September at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, delivering record levels of attendance.
With thousands of industry professionals from around the globe in attendance, attendees experienced six days of cutting-edge technologies and solutions, educational programming, and demonstrations showcased by industry-leading organizations.
“We had a great mix of public and private sector this year,” says John DelMauro, EVP of Learning at CyberRisk Alliance. “While we set the tone with keynotes who came from both sectors, we saw a large increase in public sector information security professionals. This is a reminder that information security crosses all organizations and is at the top of everyone’s priority list.”
This year’s conference program was led by cybersecurity experts and innovators, delivering valuable content through insightful keynotes, interactive breakout sessions, hands-on training workshops, book signings, networking, and a robust expo floor that featured a podcast studio, solution tech theater and 1:1 meeting zone.
Session topics explored the latest thinking on top industry concerns such as artificial intelligence, ransomware, cloud security, and zero trust, as well as discussions on new data regulations, workforce shortages and diversity, infosec management best practices, and deep dives into specialized technologies and threats.
“We’re delighted with the quality of content and speakers at this year’s event, but it was the attendee energy that made this event so memorable,” explained Del Mauro. “We are in the business of connecting attendees with valuable content, solutions, and connections. This year’s event did just that,” says DelMauro.
The 2024 edition of InfoSec World is scheduled for September 23-25, 2024, and will return to Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
