Security success doesn’t happen in a vacuum. That's why security conferences are vital—they give practitioners, decision-makers, and vendors a chance to get outside their day-to-day bubbles. Keeping up with in-person and virtual events gives you an inside look at the trends and technologies shaping our world, to better understand what your peers are doing, and which new attacks to look out for. So what are the top cybersecurity conferences 2022?

Morphisec has used its revolutionary Moving Target Defense technology to protect organizations across the globe from advanced threats since 2014, and attended dozens of security conferences in that time. We’ve learned a lot by engaging with customers, security leaders, government agencies, and other vendors. Now, with vaccines slowly reducing hospitalizations and deaths from the COVID-19 pandemic, there are hundreds of events to choose from in the next twelve months.
