Cybersecurity is a complex problem that is thankfully being addressed by researchers and professionals across the world, each dedicated to reducing risks online. Sustainable solutions require thinking that crosses cultures, disciplines and perspectives. The more these researchers know about each other’s work and the more we understand about all of their findings, the better we are able to make decisions for a safer online space.

Unfortunately, bringing everyone together is time-consuming and costly. The reality of modern academia locks important discoveries away. Those seeking knowledge from research can be blocked by:

  • Geography, as conferences can be costly to attend,
  • Travel restrictions, as unforeseen events can make travel unsafe
  • Jargon, as increasingly specialized fields require complex terminology and methods
  • Noise, as it becomes more difficult to recognize strong proofs and scientific consensus in the volume of research available online.

SECREV is an annual event, that streams from locations around the world, following the sun to provide a truly international exchange of cybersecurity knowledge. It combines streaming and social media to create an open and inclusive event for sharing and discussing cybersecurity. It was conceived to openly encourage sharing and interaction among the wider cybersecurity research community. This event has been established with the goals of:

  • Increasing the capacity of researchers to share their findings effectively online
  • Create opportunities for exchange between groups around the world that are working on cybersecurity
  • Provide a near zero cost event to enable groups to contribute and collaborate
