Managing Human Risk
Join us for the 8th annual SANS Security Awareness Summit! This year’s summit theme is “Managing Human Risk”. Traditionally awareness events have focused on topics such as ‘engagement’, ‘interaction’ and ‘gamification’. While important and will continue to be developed, we should remember that awareness is about driving behavior change and ultimately managing human risk. Our goal with this theme is to help mature the field and better align it with the strategic security priorities of organizations around the world.
The 2021 Security Awareness Summit will feature:
- In-depth Summit Talks – The industry’s top practitioners will share their latest security awareness research, solutions, tools, and case studies. Gain insight on the latest proven advances and approaches in communicating to, engaging and securing your workforce. This is a global Summit and will feature speakers and talks around multiple timezones!
- A One-of-a-Kind Virtual Networking Experience – This event is designed by the community for the community. This Live Online event offers exclusive access to connect with your fellow Awareness community, leading experts and analysts, as well as SANS instructors and staff. Attendees tell us time and again that one of the greatest takeaways from a SANS Summit is the many industry connections they forge or deepen during their time with us.
