Review Process:

All submissions will be reviewed by the Content Advisory Board on a rolling basis until all talk slots are filled. Speaker notifications will be sent out 1-2 weeks after CFP closes.

A Few Suggestions for Speakers:

It’s important that attendees leave your session with clear and actionable takeaways. Think about what attendees will learn from the talk and include actionable takeaways such as best practices, what your audience can do differently, tools to use, etc. Even if you are just talking about a vulnerability and the fix, it would still be great to give the audience a few inspirations to think about in terms of how they could be more proactive in defending.

We definitely do not expect every presentation to have technical deep-dives but a sales or marketing pitch is something you should avoid when preparing your talk.
