Eighth Annual Boston Cybersecurity Summit – Good For Massachsetts Pentest Pros

I went to this event a few years ago and was blown away by how many people were in attendance. It was held at the WestIN in Copley square, and was a great time all round. The event was catered with tons of gourmet food as well.

I do realize there are lot’s of different cyber people, so to summarize, in case you didn’t already know, this event is mostly the corporate defensive cybersec crowd. You know as opposed to a hackercon, or a govcon, or offensivesec con or like a Bsides, (which I love, and wish they still had BsidesBoston). Another plus is that you get CPE credits upon confirmation that you attended the event. So if you’re studying for example, the CISSP, you can add these credits toward that.

On a related note, here’s my post I wrote on pentesting in Massachsuetts.

The Eighth Annual Boston Cybersecurity Summit, where C-Suite and Senior Executives unite with cutting-edge solution providers and renowned information security experts.
