Cybercrime Magazine covered the first FutureCon cybersecurity conference in Atlanta earlier this year, and it was one of the best regional events we’ve witnessed.
The most recent FutureCon conference was held yesterday at the Crowne Plaza in downtown Indianapolis. The keynote speaker, TK Eppley, COO at Artillery One, delivered a spot on presentation dubbed “Five years ago Five years from now.” Epply, formerly a U.S. Navy SEAL for twenty years, and a well-respected cybersecurity evangelist, received praise from the attendees.
As the number of cyber defenders attending the local FutureCon events grows, so does the vendor community which consists of sponsors, speakers, panelists and exhibitors. The San Diego buzz carried over to social media featuring Armis Security, CBTS, Checkpoint Software, Code 42, Forcepoint Security, Mimecast, Okta, RSA Security, Symantec, Verodin, and numerous others.
A panel session on “Dark Web, Insider Threats and Cyber Resilience” was also very well received by the FutureCon attendees.
FutureCon is gaining a reputation for attracting the top regional CISOs and IT leaders to its conferences. And a lot of hot cybersecurity companies are showing up to meet them. Rounding out the sponsors in Indy were A10, Ensilo, Garland Technology, Micro Focus, Tenable, and some others.
Kim Hakim, founder of FutureCon, and a highly respected U.S. Navy veteran turned infosecurity entrepreneur, informed Cybercrime Magazine that the Indianapolis conference turned out an impressive group of cybersecurity leaders, business executives, and vendors. Hakim has run thousands of conferences in our industry over the past decade, and her impressive network is clearly paying off for everyone that shows up to a FutureCon venue.
The FutureCon App kept all of the attendees updated on the current and future trends in cybersecurity, allowing them to interact with their peers and the world’s security leaders in real time, and extending the experience beyond the event. With the app, going to one FutureCon event is like going to all of them.
Next up for FutureCon is Detroit on July 10, and then Denver on July 31. The cybersecurity conferences are being held in 24 cities throughout 2019.
