DevSecCon24 is a global, vendor-neutral, virtual community driven conference that connects developers, security and operations practitioners to educate and enable the entire spectrum of DevSecOps to integrate security into their development practices. This free, multi-track event is curated to help development, security and operations teams build secure software at the pace of digital transformation.


For the upcoming DevSecCon24 events we are looking for proposals on the topic DevSecOps and how to continuously secure delivery. Whether this is your first speaking proposal or you are a seasoned conference veteran, we want to hear and learn from your DevSecOps experiences. Share a story, a failure, a successful rollout or a tech stack that has enabled you to learn and advance in the broad space of DevSecOps. 


Submit your session based on the below locations:

  • North America 11am-4pm ET - 23rd June
  • APJ 10am - 3pm AEDT 24th June
  • Europe 10am - 3pm GMT 24th June


CFP Opens - 1st April

CFP Closes - 8th May

Speakers notified by the 22nd May


We are looking for proposals in the following areas:

**Note – abstracts that are vague and do not include in-depth details will not be considered.**


  • DevSecOps, DevOps and Security teams learning experiences: the good, the bad and the ugly
  • Cultural change in organisations: how you’ve challenged the status quo and implemented a new approach to secure development and delivery
  • Applying DevSecOps and continuously securing delivery in an organisation:
  •     Development – e.g. how to integrate security in your development without impact
  •     Testing – e.g. how to integrate security testing into a frequent release cycle
  •     Public and private cloud – e.g. automating security using cloud services
  •     Operations – e.g. how to introduce business-focussed monitoring
  •     Security – e.g. how to benefit from continuous monitoring to reduce residual risk
  •     DevSecOps – e.g. how to automate operational integrated security assurance


​Questions to consider when drafting your abstract:

  • ​Why you? Why this talk? What makes it a must see for those attending the audience?
  • Is this a Technical or cultural talk? If technical, what are the prerequisites for the audience to make it as fruitful as possible?
  • Is the topic of your talk directly related to a product or service your company offers? (Then it’s a bad fit for DevSecCon)

IMPORTANT:

Please provide a detailed abstract. Abstracts that do not clearly define the talk or are less than a paragraph will not be considered.

Provide your top three (3) key takeaways for attendees.


Session Formats

You can submit proposals for one of the following:

  • Lightning Talk (5min) - Sessions designed for speakers to give a quickfire view of a particular subject
  • Conference session (35 mins, including Q&A) – On a range of different technologies, practices and methodologies.
  • Workshops (2.5 hours) – Presentation, technical demonstration or discussion, all with an interactive element for participants


​​We welcome any feedback on our submission process, and we are here to help with anything along the way! Please get in touch at info@devseccon.com


Diverse Backgrounds

If the DevSecOps industry hasn't included you or others like you, please include this in your proposal. We want to make a space for the perspectives of people that are underrepresented in or excluded from technology: people of color, women, LGBTQ people, people with disabilities, students, and many more. 


Absolutely no vendor pitches

Many of our most successful talks are by people who sell products in the same area they’re speaking about. If your talk is focused on promoting or selling your product,, it’s a bad fit for DevSecCon.


Code of Conduct

All speakers must adhere to the DevSecCon code of conduct.

DevSecCon is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organisers.


​Any form of written, social media, or verbal communication that can be offensive or harassing to any attendee, speaker or staff is not allowed at DevSecCon. Please inform a DevSecCon staff member if you feel a violation has taken place and the management team will address the situation. Participants asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately. We expect participants to follow these rules at all conference venues (virtual or in person) and conference-related social events.
