Many infosec conferences are going virtual in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Is your favorite conference going virtual? Check out our list of events and update your calendar!

Conferences are important events in almost every industry, giving professionals the opportunity to learn about new developments, get valuable insights from leading experts, and network with other professionals. In few fields do conferences play as important a role as they do in information security. This ever-changing industry places high demands on professionals to stay abreast of the latest best practices, trends, and research findings that impact their day-to-day responsibilities and help them perform at their best.

Information security conferences take place all over the world, with events happening year round. We originally created this list in 2015 and update it each year to reflect current events and up-to-date information. However, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, many conferences and events have been canceled or postponed, while others have opted to move to a virtual delivery model. So, rather than update our list of in-person conferences and events in the midst of uncertainty, we've compiled a list of virtual cybersecurity events you can atttend from the comfort of your home or office.

The following virtual events are not ranked in terms of value or importance, but instead are listed chronologically, beginning with events that take place in May 2020. Event series with multiple dates are listed last, not to be interpreted as being of less value than those listed towards the beginning of the list. Be sure to visit event websites for specifics and registration information for 2020. Events that have not yet taken place in 2020 include the most up-to-date information available at the time of writing.
