SANS European Security Awareness Summit

Summit Dates: November 20-21, 2019
Training Course Dates: November 18-19, 2019

The 5th 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 organization, with a focus on your industry, employee base, and current maturity level. This two-day Summit includes expert awareness-focused talks, interactive discussions, networking events, and more!

Call for Presentations now Open!

The Call for Presentations (CFP) for the European SANS Security Awareness Summit is now open, the deadline for submissions is Friday 21 June at 17:00 GMT. Submit your presentation here!

We are looking for speakers who are actively involved in helping organisations build, enhance, or measure security awareness and culture programs and can share real-world stories on propelling a program to the next level. In addition, we are looking for industry experts in organisational change, culture and behavioural insights. Our goal is for attendees to walk away with actionable lessons they can apply right away to their own program.
Why Present at the Summit?

- Promotion of your speaking session and company via the Security Awareness Summit website, social media and printed materials
- Access to a friendly, supportive environment to develop and enhance your public speaking skills
- Complimentary pass to the Summit plus a complimentary Summit guest pass

SANS does not cover travel or hotel expenses for speakers, but we do reserve a block of rooms at a special rate. We also serve a light breakfast and lunch on both Summit days

The 2019 Security Awareness Summit will feature:

  • Video Wars: Watch the different training videos organizations 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 organizations have developed. This is a great opportunity to learn how organizations made the materials, which ones were the most effective and why.
  • Onsite lunches: Stay for lunch and mix/mingle with other attendees.
  • Interactive Workshops: In addition to industry leading talks we will host several hands-on workshops where you actually plan and build elements of your awareness program. From phishing assessments and ambassador programs to planning your own escape room, these highly interactive sessions are often the most popular of the summit.
  • Evening socials: Take a chance to unwind and socialize with your peers at organized social events every night.
