SecTor is all about the meat -- The content that matters to Canadian IT Security Professionals today. Of course we'll have fun and celebrate having the world's best in Toronto, but the key to SecTor's success, and thus the primary objective of the Management Committee and Advisory Committee, is quality content and presentation for attendees.
If we haven't approached you, but you believe you have a significant discovery or new research that the security community would value, or enjoy hearing about, we invite you to submit your presentation topic for serious consideration.
Round One call for speakers is now closed. To have been included in first round speaker selection, your proposal submissions must have been submitted before end of day April 17th, 2016. The first round of speakers will be announced in the middle of May. To allow for late breaking research to be presented, additional submissions will be accepted until end of day August 14th, 2016.
