Cybercrime Magazine covered the first FutureCon cybersecurity conference last month in Atlanta, and it was one of the best regional events we’ve witnessed.

For its second event, on January 30, FutureCon set up shop in the desert. More than 100 attendees showed up in Scottsdale, Ariz. for a full day of presentations, networking, and dining at the Hilton Scottsdale Resort and Villas. For its third event, FutureCon moved to the Dallas/Addison Marriott Quorum By The Galleria on February 21, where they shone a light on state and local government.

The most recent FutureCon conference was held at the Hilton Los Angeles Airport on February 27. Gary Hayslip took the stage to deliver his keynote speech on “Hack like a CISO, Win Peers and Influence People in a Hostile Environment.” The audience was captivated by Hayslip, CISO at Webroot, and former CISO for San Diego, our nation’s eighth largest city.

Kim Hakim, founder of FutureCon, and a highly respected U.S. Navy veteran turned infosecurity entrepreneur, informed Cybercrime Magazine that her fourth conference in 2019 turned out an exciting group of senior IT and cybersecurity executives that were on hand networking with the vendor community.

“Much like our first three events, the FutureCon App kept everyone updated on the current and future trends in cybersecurity, allowing attendees to interact with their peers and the world’s security leaders in real-time, and extending the FutureCon experience beyond the event,” said Hakim.

FutureCon sponsors include Micro Focus, Fortinet, Barracuda, Cisco Security, Ensilo Security, Vedordin Inc., CI Security, Edgewave, Mimecast, Arkose Labs, DarkTrace, Forcepoint Security, Wallix, SlashNext, ExtraHop, PacketViper, Cirro Inc., Spirion, Datalink Networks, and inWebo.

Next up for FutureCon is St. Louis, Mo. on March 13, and then Chicago on March 27. The cybersecurity conferences will be in 24 cities throughout 2019.
