Speak at GovWare 2023

Our theme this year is "Fostering Trust Through Collaboration in the New Digital Reality". As we continue to navigate the rapid pace of change in the cybersecurity landscape, it has become increasingly clear that trust is fundamental to the success of digital initiatives.

At GovWare 2023, we aim to explore how we can build and maintain trust in the new digital reality by collaborating with each other and by adopting a holistic approach to examining the building blocks of digital trust. We believe that it is only by coming together as a community that we can address the challenges of the ever-changing cybersecurity landscape.

We are excited to bring together experts and thought leaders from around the globe to discuss these changes and how to adapt to them. If you are passionate about cybersecurity and have valuable insights in any of the focus areas listed below, we invite you to join us as a speaker at GovWare 2023 and share your expertise with our global community.

Be a part of a dynamic and empowering community of cybersecurity professionals and thought leaders. Submit your proposal today, and let's work together to foster trust in the new digital reality.
