SIA seeking session proposals for ISC East 2018, ISC West 2019
The SIA Education@ISC team is seeking session proposals for the upcoming ISC East and ISC West tradeshows and are encouraging security experts, technologists, educators and trainers to submit abstracts by May 25 for ISC East 2018 and June 11 for ISC West 2019.
ISC East 2018 takes place November 14 and 15, 2018 in New York City and is attended by 4,500 security professionals. ISC West 2019 takes place April 9 to 12, 2019 in Las Vegas and is North America’s largest security event with an attendance of 30,000.
SIA Education@ISC is the educational conference program within the ISC West and ISC East tradeshows, and the conference-program delivers top-level information and insight into new technologies, critical issues and strategies shaping the evolving security market.
“Hands-on learning lab sessions offer practitioners opportunities to learn theory while having practical interactions for tangible takeaways they can apply back on the job,” said Kimberly Roberts, SIA’s director of education. “Our workforce needs this kind of learning at industry events.”
SIA Education@ISC East session content is designed for two groups: systems integrators/security installing firms and security practitioners. All educational sessions must be commercial free; presenters are prohibited from marketing products or services through the sessions.
At last month’s ISC West show, SIA Education@ISC offered more than 85 accredited sessions covering a range of industry topics including how biometrics are changing the way we interact and transact, and how the increasing popularity of biometric authentication will impact our relationship with physical devices.
