FloCon 2023 

Jan 9-12, 2023 | Santa Fe, NM

Thanks for Attending FloCon 2023!

FloCon focuses on applying any and all collected data to defend enterprise networks. While past conferences emphasized network flow data, FloCon now centers on improving network security by analyzing a variety of data supported by innovative machine learning, hardware, and network storage. These analyses draw upon this diverse data to track security-critical characteristics and threats, including network size, structure, and traffic -- plus a wide range of automated and human-based threats.

FloCon attendees can deeply engage with the latest tools, methods, and processes for using data to defend networked systems. Build useful skills at FloCon’s pre-conference courses. Learn about the latest techniques for applying data and analytic methods at presentations. Engage in friendly competition at an online contest. Meet and network with other attendees at FloCon’s online discussions and social events. Learn about the latest security technologies and products at vendor demos.
