FloCon 2021 Goes Virtual

Due to uncertainty over the Covid-19 pandemic, FloCon 2021 is going virtual. Our theme of “Using Data to Defend” is more critical than ever, given the security challenges of moving customers and vendors online and supporting a remote workforce. The online conference will be held on January 11-14, 2021.

FloCon 2021 focuses on using “big data” to solve difficult security problems. Its practical, practitioner-oriented sessions feature online training, presentations, and keynote speakers from the security and data analysis community. Interactive panels, chats, and breakout sessions bring attendees into the action. Virtual vendor demos round out the conference.

If you’re new to FloCon, this is a great chance to learn about data-driven security from real-world practitioners in industry, government, and academia. If you’ve attended FloCon before, you’ll find the content, training, and networking opportunities you know and love in a convenient online format.

Please email info@sei.cmu.edu with any questions.
