Call for Speakers

mWISE 2023 returns to Washington, D.C.

We are back!

mWISE (Mandiant Worldwide Information Security Exchange) returns to Washington, D.C. from September 18–20 — gathering leading security experts to share knowledge and intel, and to address the greatest cyber threats and challenges we face. mWISE is open to the security community at large — bringing industry, government and academia together to discuss and understand today’s landscape and identify the threats on the horizon.

Content for our program is guided by an open call for speakers with an agenda curated by selections from an independent committee of industry practitioners. While our educational content is not driven by sponsorship, leading security vendors, including our underwriter, Mandiant/Google Cloud, will showcase their expertise and products on our expanded expo floor.

The fight against cybercrimes and threats cannot be won alone. Let’s use the power of our community to work together!


Call for Speakers

Our Call for Speakers for 2023 is now closed. We thank you — our community — for all your submissions!

Our independent program committee has reviewed and curated an amazing event for you. Discover the lineup of talks and speakers!


Call for Keynote Ideas

In 2022 we presented a keynote stage free from vendor influence. No pay-to-play on our stage! We featured sessions with key government officials, intel experts — and a few talks we refer to as “brain candy”.

Thank you for sharing your ideas for topics and speakers! We received over 60 submissions. Visit our session catalog and keynote page, and watch the community's ideas come to fruition!

Your expertise will ultimately lead our final agenda. To guide your submissions, we have created six tracks:
