Tickets 1,001 – 1,100 Now On Sale
S4x24 is March 4 - 7 in Miami South Beach
S4 is …
Optimistic … Forward Looking … Creative … Driving Change
Set free a conservative, slow moving, change resistant community to discover new ideas and come up with innovative ways to use these new ideas to deploy secure, resilient and better ICS.
After a Covid caused cancellation of S4x21, S4 came roaring back with a record 800 attendees and warmth of spirit at S4x22. S4x23 in February sold out with 1,100 attendees, and this will be the attendee limit for S4x24. More important than the numbers were the percentage of new and diverse talent we are seeing and the spirit that has been maintained at S4 despite the growth from 40 people in a small room in 2007.
The best way to understand how S4 is different is to come to the event. The second best way is to ask someone who has attended, obviously we are biased. S4 is not for everyone. If you are an early adopter, like to be on the leading edge, or enjoy hearing, considering and creating new ideas, then there is a good chance S4 will be a great event for you.

Three days, three stages plus events on the third floor and social events makes for a very full agenda. We received a great haul in quantity and quality of session proposals that made for hard choices. Now it is here, the first draft of the S4x23 Agenda. Available 3+...
First, an update. 57 of the 100 free Women In ICS Security tickets are taken, and there are ~35 women who have purchased full tickets. Unsure at this early date if we will top the 180 women (20%) at S4x22, but we will have a good representation. It will still fall far...
The S4 ICS CTF is back for S4x23. The ICS Village will run the CTF. And it will be like 9 CTFs rolled into one. The S4 ICS Capture The Flag competition was one of the first in the ICS category. My biased opinion is that Reid Wightman put on one of the most creative...
S4x23 officially opens at 9AM on Tuesday, Feb 14th, but you may want to plan on taking a Monday (Feb 13th) morning flight so you can participate in the Monday afternoon pre-event activities beginning at 1PM. The SBOM Pavilion will be open 1PM - 6PM on Monday. You can...
We had a S4 record (and perhaps a world record) 164 women ICS security professionals attend S4x22. About half of those women came on the free Women In ICS Security ticket that allowed them to attend the Monday and Tuesday activities free of charge. While there was...
The fun and experiences at S4 are made possible with the help of the sponsors on this page. All Sponsor Packages are sold out. We will make Women In ICS Security Sponsor Packages available in November, and we may have some signage-only packages available in December (although existing sponsors will have first rights to these).
S4 Prime Sponsors
S4 Prime Sponsor rooms will be open Monday – Thursday one floor up from the stages for demos, sessions, experiences and fun.
Cabana Session Sponsors
On Wednesday we spend the afternoon around the Surfcomber pool for the Cabana Sessions. It’s our version of an exhibit hall, just a lot more fun and in beautiful weather. The sponsors show their stuff and there is food, drink and a lot of creative activities. The Cabana Sessions are a great way to establish and deepen relationships with your peers.
The S4 Lounge is a great place to sit down, have a rest or nice chat, and enjoy a latte or whatever your preferred coffee or soft drink is.
