“See globally. Defend locally.” At SecureWorld, it’s our battle refrain and the heart of what we do.

For over 18 years, we’ve stayed on top of global IT security issues and shared the critical knowledge and tools needed to protect against ever-evolving threats. Through our network of industry experts, thought leaders, practitioners, and solution providers, we collaborate to produce leading-edge, relevant content and educational opportunities.

We host 17 annual conferences across North America, web conferences every three weeks, a weekly podcast, and online training courses, and serve as a hub for cybersecurity news and resources. We hope you'll consider becoming part of our security community!
