    The world’s most influential gathering focused on driving security’s future is the best place to discover what’s changed, what works, and most importantly, what’s next in security. The purpose of the educational portion of the event is to provide high-quality education and networking opportunities for security professionals. Our multiple day, multiple track format offers a self-directed, facilitated learning environment with education sessions, interactive forums, and an exhibition. The high-quality educational programs focus on current and emerging security threats, best practices, and other issues facing professionals responsible for securing their organizations' people, property, and data in today's challenging global environment. The event will host more than 250 educational sessions covering more than 15 topical areas that can be tailored to the needs and challenges of security professionals.

    Abstracts will be accepted for presentations based on topic relevance, timeliness, and expertise of the speakers. There will be a heavy emphasis on intermediate to advanced level content presentations.
