This will allow more non_US members to attend...
Thanks for letting us to know about.
It will be important to transfer this information to Chapters Leaders...
Last Saturday (7-11-2020), I was privileged to attend and present at BSidesSATX. The event was great.
It was well managed and pleasantly coordinated event. The over 1100 attendees knew that the local free event was run by an all-volunteer staff, but the professionalism of the staff was top shelf.
I need to turn in the CPE's for the event and for presenting.
BSides San Antonio help set a great example on how to run a virtual security event.
P.S. They also had nice shirts. Last year they used a stylized Sugar Skull for a logo...this year it wore a mask.
Hi Andrea, two minor issues.
1. Where is the agenda ? It's great asking us to buy the Early bird, but it would be even better to be able to see what we are getting, be it early bird or not.
2. How would this work for people in different time zones ? If the schedules are US time, those of us on the other side of the world will not be able to take place in the actual events but will have to watch recordings, in which case we lose out of the opportunity to take an active part if we wanted to.
So, although I really like the idea and hope that at some point things will be normal enough to return to the actual conferences, some of the issues don't seem to have been worked out for a global community.
Thank you for your comments/questions.
We are hoping to post an agenda within a few weeks. We understand the time differences for our global audience. On that note, we are exploring staggered start times for some sessions, if possible. As this all finalizes, we will update the event registration site and the Community with additional information. This is a new way to deliver Security Congress; however, our team is working hard to quickly finalize our solutions to the questions you raise.
Thank you in advance for everyone's patience. We hope to update you soon!
@AndreaMoore good morning (My morning),
Thank you for your response.
I hope that ISC2 will ensure that the lower cost of the conference will remain until after the agenda is out. I still find it pretty strange that registration has begun even though no one actually knows what is going to be going on, or how.
Any thoughts about hosting it in Chicago or Indianapolis next year? Just can't justify spending 6 days and thousands in travel expenses to go to Orlando.
Thanks for the suggestion! We will announce 2021 information later on but for now we are focused on providing a great event (virtually) for 2020. Since you won't need to travel for the 2020 event, we hope you can join us virtually this year!
Register now at congress.isc2.org for Early Bird pricing now through September 30!
Just making sure everyone on this thread saw that the agenda is posted at congress.isc2.org.
