Information Security Events and Groups in Atlantic Canada

Atlantic Security Conference (AtlSecCon)
The only security conference in Atlantic Canada focusing on bringing some of the worlds brightest and darkest minds together with one common goal – to expand the pool of IT Security knowledge beyond its typical confines.

Halifax Area Security Klatch (the HASK)
The Halifax Area Security Klatch (HASK), provides a forum for experts to encourage discussion and share expertise in understanding the latest trends and security threats facing computer networks, systems and data.

Our membership includes Information Security practitioners, managers, network administrators, students, and anyone who is interesting in learning more about securing information.

We meet at the Halifax Club in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Typically, we meet the last Monday of the month except for March, June, July, August, and December; unless otherwise notified.

Security B-Sides Cape Breton
What happens when many high quality information security speakers don’t get a chance to speak at the BlackHat Briefings Conference in Las Vegas? You make a new, more inclusive conference! 

B-Sides is a template conference design powered by grassroots organizers, has spread to dozens of cities in several countries, and it is Cape Breton’s turn this fall. The community of researchers, academics, professionals, and enthusiasts who attend, organize, and speak at these nonprofit conferences customize the atmosphere and dialogue in each city, but the sense of collaboration exists at each location. 

Intimate educational talks are the start of quality networking and interaction between participants and speakers and B-Sides Cape Breton is seeking exceptional speakers, both seasoned and new.

Our guests come from all over the country, but you don’t have to be an industry professional to attend. We encourage anyone interested in learning more about information security to join the conversation.

Atlantic HTCIA
The HTCIA Atlantic Canada Chapter consists of members from the four Atlantic provinces:
  • Nova Scotia
  • New Brunswick
  • Prince Edward Island
  • Newfoundland
The High Technology Crime Investigation Association is composed of 8 regions within the United States and 6 international regions, including Canada. The Atlantic Chapter is one of five chapters in the Canadian region. Internationally there are 38 chapters overall.

Moncton Area Security Klatch (the MASK)
The Moncton Area Security Klatch (MASK), provides a forum for experts to encourage discussion and share expertise in understanding the latest trends and security threats facing computer networks, systems and data.

Our community seeks to involve Information Security practitioners, managers, network administrators, developers, students, and anyone who is interesting in learning more about securing information.

The MASK will be a monthly event, at a soon to be determined venue. Each invent will include, but not limited to:
  • Social time & networking to meet and discuss with other enthusiasts (Appetizers and drinks included, thanks to the sponsor)
  • Vendor sponsored presentation
  • Presentation done by MASK member
BSides is an open platform that gives security experts and industry professionals the opportunity to share ideas, insights, and develop longstanding relationships with others in the community.  It is a rare opportunity to directly connect and create trusted relationships with key members of the community.

St. John’s is located along on the East Coast of Canada, on the northeast of the Avalon Peninsula in southeast Newfoundland. It is the most easterly city in North America.
