GoSec is an annual convention which brings together several experts in the IT security field, from both the private and public sector, and offers a variety of seminars on various themes and topics related to IT security. In addition to being a great networking opportunity, this event allows participants to learn about new industry trends.

The 15th edition GoSec2019 will be hosted at the Montreal Convention Centre on August 28th and 29th 2019.
