Call for Speakers

From now until Nov. 10, 2019

Welcome to CYBERSEC!

Organized by iThome, CYBERSEC, the largest annual cybersecurity event in Taiwan since 2015, serves as an important platform for international exchange. In 2019, President Tsai Ing-wen attended and spoke at the event, encouraging industry partners to join together in facing cybersecurity challenges around the world.
CYBERSEC 2019 attracted the participation of more than 8,000 people from across 25 countries, including more than 200 cybersecurity companies and communities. A total of 225 cybersecurity experts gathered to explore the various aspects of cybersecurity in sessions. Furthermore, world–famous security guru, Mr. Bruce Schneier, served as the keynote speaker for the grand event.
In 2020, we will continue to stand up to global challenges posed by cybersecurity issues with more than 100 speeches.
