Summits provide a unique experience where people, ideas, and solutions connect.

SANS Summits are two-day events that focus on the most current topics in computer and IT security. User Panels, Debates, Vendor Demos and short talks by industry experts help you get the most up-to-date security solutions in the least amount of time.

For many Summits, we run a public Call for Presenters (CFP). If you wish to be notified of open CFPs and their deadlines, please send a note to SummitCFPs@sans.org to be added to our notification list.

SANS Summits are the only place to:

  • Get secrets from the best minds in the computer security industry
  • Learn tough lessons from real enterprises - what really works (and what doesn't)
  • Gain hands-on experience with top vendors
  • Get answers to the hard questions

Mission Statement

The SANS Summits are dedicated to connecting users of security technology and thought leaders of the industry in a venue for exploration and discussion of the needs, problems and solutions to the changing issues in the current technology environment.
