The 3rd annual SANS European Security Awareness Summit is on and it's lining up to be bigger and better than ever. Every year, we strive to provide the very best forum for security awareness officers looking to take their program to the next level!

Our promise is to provide actionable lessons you can take back and apply right away within your own organisation, with a focus on your industry, employee base, and current maturity level. This two-day Summit includes expert awareness-focused talks, interactive workshops, networking events, and more! Here are a few of the sessions we have planned for this year's Summit:

  • Video Wars: Watch the different training videos organisations have created and hear from them how they created the videos, what worked and did not work, and why.
  • Show-n-Tell Booths: We have expanded the highly popular Show-n-Tell Booths to support more booths and a dedicated session for attendees to interact with all the different awareness materials organisations have developed. This is a great opportunity to learn how organisations made the materials, which ones were the most effective and why.
  • Onsite Lunches: Stay for lunch and mix/mingle with other attendees.
  • Escape Rooms: The FedEx team will share how they created and executed security awareness escape rooms in their organisation. They will then challenge each table to its own escape room. For those of you who are unable to complete all the locks in time or want to just learn more about escape rooms, the FedEx team will host a follow-on event later this evening after the Summit.
  • Evening Socials: Take a chance to unwind and socialise with your peers in the center of London –with a mobile website highlighting possible venues.

Only by working together as a community will we be able to address the human challenge. In addition, choose to attend a world-class SANS courses offered to help you expand your information security expertise. SANS instructors are experienced industry practitioners considered to be among the best cybersecurity instructors in the world. They will provide you and your community with the expert guidance and skills you need to stop cyber-attacks against your organisations.
