applied security conferences and training: CanSecWest | PacSec | EUSecWest |

CanSecWest 2015

The 15th annual CanSecWest conference will be held March 18-20th, 2015 at the Sheraton Wall Centre hotel in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia.

Interact with the security community

CanSecWest, the world's most advanced conference focusing on applied digital security, is about bringing the industry luminaries together in a relaxed environment which promotes collaboration and social networking. The conference lasts for three days and features a single track of thought provoking presentations, each prepared by an experienced professional and talented educator who is at the cutting edge of his or her field. We give preference to new and innovative material, highlighting important, emergent technologies, techniques, or best industry practices.

The conference is single track, with one hour presentations over the duration beginning at 9:00 a.m. The registration fee includes the catered meals, and there will be a vendor display and lounge/eating area, where wireless internet access will be available (as well as in the speaking theater). The conference discount hotel room booking system can be found here.
