Building on the MapleSEC flagship conference, the Satellite Series will delve into three topic areas that remain top-of-mind for 2021. 

The series builds on the conversations from the inaugural MapleSEC conference and prepares the ground for the return of the three-day flagship event in October 2021. The goal of the Satellite meetings is to educate, network, partner, and find ways to push towards a more secure digital Canada by advancing the cybersecurity conversation.

Each satellite session includes a hands-on-workshop, a panel, and presentations featuring senior government and business leaders of special interest to this community – as well as updates on the latest cybersecurity threats and practices.
