Cybercrime is on the rise and creates an increasing need to find new ways to protect computer systems. Serious data breaches, hackers, and malicious software are becoming more and more frequent. If you want to keep up with the latest techniques and products to help you make your systems more secure, there is something you can do. This is the reason for the 2019 Secure World Expo in Seattle, WA.
The Expo will take place on November 13–14, 2019, at the Meydenbauer Center. Keynote speakers include Mark Gelhardt, former CIO at the White House, and Christopher McMahon, Special Agent in the U.S. Secret Service. Other speakers include Ron Winward, who calls himself a Security Evangelist. Bruce Sussman, Emmy-Winning Journalist for SecureWorld, will also be a presenter at the Expo.
The exhibitor list includes over 40 vendors, including Alert Logic, Bitglass, CISO Ventures, CISCO, Cloud Security Alliance Seattle, CrowdStrike, ISACA, Malwarebytes, Radware, Tevora and others. You can register and create your personal agenda on the Conference App and microsite, called SecureWorld. This app allows you to view maps of the Exhibit Hall, view speaker slides after the conference, and use secure messaging to network with others. You can also enjoy playing CyberHunt and compete for prizes while at the conferences.
Attendance at the conference will allow you to receive Continuing Professional Education credits that are accepted as a requirement of certain certifying bodies. Be sure to check with the certifying registering body to make certain you meet the requirements and obtain the certifications needed to meet the requirements.
The Expo is the perfect opportunity to network with other cybersecurity professionals and to find out the newest information about where the future lies in information security. You can learn about the latest incident management techniques and how to secure your system most cost-effectively and efficiently. The Expo promises to be fun and informative for cybersecurity professionals on all levels of organizations. You will gain knowledge and resources that you can take home and apply to your organization.
Seattle is a major center for the tech industry, and the Expo will be held in Bellevue, which is just across Lake Washington. Bellevue features a great art museum, fine dining, and plenty of outdoor activities in the surrounding area. It is only a short distance to the heart of Seattle, where you can experience the nightlife and entertainment of the big city. If you are the adventurous type, you could opt for the Bellevue Zip Line tour. You could always visit the iconic Space Needle and Chihuly Garden and Glass museum.
There are many hotel options in Bellevue that are located close to the Expo and surrounding attractions. Some of the best hotels in Bellevue, WA, include the Westin Bellevue, Red Lion Hotel Bellevue, and Bellevue Club Hotel. However, we think that the top pick is the Hyatt House Seattle/Bellevue. It is a modern, stylish hotel where you can enjoy close access to I-90. It is close to major corporations such as the Microsoft Campus, Boeing, Samsung, and T-Mobile headquarters. It offers a pool, fitness center, business services, and free Internet access.
