Take part in team workshops and hear from experienced security awareness professionals share their practical recommendations and lessons learned that you can apply right away within your own organization.

The 2020 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.
  • 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.
