ISACA Winnipeg welcomes you to our annual Western Canada Information Security Conference.
Our event brings IT Security and Audit professionals together with OEM and local vendors over two days. Industry professionals get topical education on cyber issues and up to 13 CPE credits to support their certifications. Vendors get the opportunity to showcase their expertise on cyber security products, solutions, and ideas to the Winnipeg audience. This year’s event takes place on Monday May 16th and Tuesday the 17th. The conference opens both days at 8 AM, followed by a 1-hour Plenary Session from our Diamond sponsor at 8:30 AM. There are two Networking Breaks planned at 9:30 AM and 2:00 PM. Keynote Speaker is scheduled on May 16th at 12:00 PM. There are five 1-hour sessions with three separate education tracks distributed during each day. Although there is an unscheduled break from 12 Noon to 1 PM on May 17th, vendors will be available at their booths all day to meet with attendees. New for this year, Leadership Gamification will be featured through the two-day-conference.
Each day’s formal schedule ends at 4:30 PM after the last sessions of the day. This year’s virtual conference will follow the layout of our in-person conferences with a Lobby, an Exhibit Hall, and an Auditorium. Each vendor will have a virtual booth in the Exhibit Hall hosted by their staff where they will be available to the conference attendees. The Auditorium will be where the Plenary Sessions and the Keynote Addresses will be held. We encourage attendees to take advantage of this opportunity to meet with our vendors at their virtual booths.
Last year was record breaking, and we'll be continuing our long legacy of success by bringing in yet another exceptional keynote speaker for
