Attend one (or all!) of our FREE virtual Summits to enjoy:
- In-depth Talks and Panel Discussions - The industry's top practitioners share their latest cyber security research, proven techniques, solutions, tools, lessons-learned, and innovative strategies. You’ll have a number of talks to choose from, plus lots of new virtual event features that will have you schooled up for the year and planning for the rest of 2022 before the week is out.
- Interactive Workshops - Workshops provide you the opportunity to walk though realistic scenarios with your peers and generate action plans. Workshops are led by experts and use case studies to help attendees examine a scenario and make decisions based on the information provided.
- Exclusive Networking Opportunities - Connect with your community, industry experts, and SANS Instructors via virtual chat rooms. Share ideas, success stories, and lessons learned and get the perspective of other attendees who are facing the same challenges you are. Attendees tell us time and again that one of the greatest takeaways from a SANS Summit is the many industry connections they forge or deepen during their time with us.
- Attend Live and Earn CPE Credits - Not only does your participation help you meet the criteria to renew your certifications, but you'll also be taking advantage of free learning opportunities that help you stay ahead of the curve and contribute to a safer community.
What Attendees Say About Their Virtual Summit Experience
Interested in a Summit, but know you won't be able to attend?
We understand — these are busy times. That doesn’t mean you have to miss out. Register and you’ll be given access to that event’s Summit Access Page. Registrants receive first access to Summit presentations and recordings via this Summit Access Page. Or — even better, if your other plans fall through or you have the time to pop in for a live talk or two — your Summit Access Page is how you join the event. Don’t miss out, get registered now.
*At this time, we are not able to issue CPEs to those that view the Summit recording.
