The 9th annual SANS Security Awareness Summit, held August 3-4 in Austin, TX, is a fantastic opportunity to network with and learn from your peers, develop your skills and expertise, and ultimately grow your career. With over 20 speakers, two hands-on workshops, and a reputation for being one of the most friendly and interactive security events in the world, you will find an incredible opportunity to learn how to more effectively manage and measure human risk.
Even better, you have two options how to attend. You can attend virtually for free or pay to attend in-person. If you choose to attend virtually, you will have access to all the speakers and networking opportunities via the Summit Slack workspace. But what about attending in-person? How can you justify the event when there are costs involved? What is the value to your boss and your organization? Here are some things to consider:
- Human Risk: People are the number one driver of breaches today. The 2022 VZ DBIR which was just released confirmed that people are involved in over 80% of all breaches. Your organization and CISO need someone (you) to help them build and manage a mature awareness program to effectively manage their human risk. This is one of the very few events globally dedicated to just this topic.
- Real-World Speakers: Learn from your peers how they are effectively managing and measuring your human risk. Our promise to you is our speakers will provide real-world action items you can apply the day you get back to work. You and your organization will be able to more effectively identify, map, manage and measure your human risk, ultimately building a stronger reputation.
- Hands-On Workshops: Expand your knowledge (and career opportunities) by growing your skills beyond just awareness to include how you can support your security team in responding to a breach and / or take a lead in building your security culture.
- Networking: Meet, partner, and network with peers from around the world who are in the same industry as you, attempting to solve the same problems as you. Included is an event breakfast, a networking social, and a team interactive challenge on the morning of the second day.
On a personal level, we are going to show you how to grow your visibility and credibility with your senior leadership, to include increasing your compensation by up to $30,000. Learn more about this super friendly event at the SANS Security Awareness Summit site.
