Our third annual Cyber Solutions Fest takes place October 13 and 14, and the fact that this virtual event is free is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to reasons that you’ll want to have this event on your calendar. In case you need more reasons, how does our top five sound to you? Read on!
1. Created and Led by Top SANS Instructors
This year we are eager for SANS Instructors Jake Williams, Chris Crowley, Dave Shackleford, and Matt Bromiley leading our four topic tracks. These track chairs have had their hands in the middle of the content being shared and have ensured that presentations will focus on actionable suggestions and solutions for you to take back to your company. During these two days, you’ll learn about innovative solutions for real-world problems that you’re likely to run into at your organization.
2. Cutting Edge Solutions to Solve your Cyber Challenges
Cyber Solutions Fest is unique from any other SANS event because you’ll have access to over 40 well-respected cyber security solution providers that have the latest products available. During these thought-provoking sessions, you’ll listen to real-world case studies and dive headfirst into demos that’ll be sure to give you ideas for how to reevaluate and improve your security program. Even if you don’t find a solution that fits your needs, this event is the ideal place to share your thoughts with not only solutions vendors but also your professional peers. Who knows, you might even potentially plant the seed for the next new solution.
