As tech conferences and trade shows are being canceled, postponed, or going virtual left and right, many cyber-security events are meeting a similar fate, all due to health concerns caused by the novel coronavirus known as COVID-19.

Cyber-security professionals who couldn’t attend some of their favorite conferences before — primarily due to time, travel, or health reasons — may find that some events are now being streamed and they may be able to watch sessions from the comfort or their home or workspace.
