Everyone keep their computers indoors this week because come March 21 and 22 Halifax is going to be flooded with hackers on their way to AtlSecCon at the World Trade and Convention center.
As Eastern Canada’s premiere InfoSec conference AtlSecCon brings together some of the brightest and darkest minds together with one common goal – to expand the pool of IT Security knowledge beyond its typical confines.
Now in its third year, this conference has grown leaps and bounds doubling in attendance each year, with this year looking to be no different. This growth is mostly due to the quality of content that the conference provides, which is timely and up to date information in the world of information security.
Always wanting to raise the bar this year’s Keynote will be delivered by Richard Stiennon, author of Surviving Cyberwar (Rowman & Littlefield, 2010) and UP and to the RIGHT: Strategy and Tactics of Analyst Influence (IT-Harvest Press, 2012). Stiennon is an industry analyst who not only covers the IT security space but has spent a lot of time investigating the technology research business. Stiennon was also named one of the "50 Most Powerful People in Networking" by Network World Magazine.
So, come one come all and have a hackin’ good time with some really friendly folks who are trying to make your digital world just that much safer while trying to have some fun along the way.
Visit the AtlSecCon website for more information or to register for the conference.
