This form gives you the opportunity to submit a proposal for SOURCE Seattle

What is SOURCE?

SOURCE Conference brings security experts and business professionals together in an intimate and personal environment to discuss the security industry’s most important issues, technologies, and business trends. SOURCE places the technical excellence and expertise found at top hacker conferences in an executive environment where business professionals can gain insight into the security industry’s most important issues, technologies, and business trends.

Who Attends SOURCE?

SOURCE is designed for top security professionals, advanced IT professionals, senior and top-level executives, company chief officers (e.g. CTOs, CISOs), faculty and students from colleges and universities, members of management and business communities who are looking to connect with security and technology experts.

The SOURCE Experience

SOURCE Seattle attendees experience two full days of world-class sessions taught by top business and security experts. SOURCE prides itself on providing an intimate environment where attendees can ask questions, participate in discussions, and interact with other delegates and speakers.

SOURCE Seattle offers three primary tracks:

Security and Technology: Security software, cloud security, secure coding practices, reverse engineering, new software releases, and technology demonstrations
Business of Security: Critical decision-making, entrepreneurship, issues of compliance, vulnerability management, SaaS, privacy laws, disclosure, and economics
Application Security: Threats, attacks, vulnerabilities, countermeasures, testing, mobile application security, security testing, penetration testing, code analysis, process, metrics, etc.
However, we often mix in some talks that we feel are relevant to our audience but don’t necessarily fit anywhere else. Preference typically goes to talks that fit the tracks, but if you have something compelling & relevant that doesn’t quite fit elsewhere, feel free to submit it anyway.
