Organized by iThome, CYBERSEC, is the largest annual cybersecurity event in Taiwan. Since 2015, we have been gradually becoming the dominant platform for international exchange on cybersecurity. In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has been ravaging the world. Fortunately, Taiwan has been doing an excellent job on preventing the spread of the pandemic domestically. As a result, the organization of CYBERSEC has been able to proceed safely, becoming one of only two cybersecurity conferences to have been physically held in the world along with the RSA Conference this year. With the participation of 250 cybersecurity companies, CYBERSEC had nearly 10,000 registered attendees.
Furthermore, President Tsai-Ing Wen along with chief executives involved in cybersecurity all shared a stage to express the government’s determination to develop the industry and its great support for CYBERSEC.

Over the last six years, we have been consistently growing and expanding our impact. With the pandemic this year, international conditions have only become increasingly unpredictable, leading to even more invisible digital attacks and an even greater urgency to improve defenses. We deeply believe that persistence is power and CYBERSEC is ready. From May 4th to 6th in 2021, CYBERSEC 2021 will be held in Nangang Exhibition Center, Hall 2.

You are welcome to join us in moving steadily forward together. To build a better and safer world, there are no miracle solutions. Persistence is the only way.
