SANS Cyber Security Summit

A SANS Summit is a 1 or 2-day event that is timed to coincide with a SANS Training Event. A Summit consists of presentations, demonstrations and discussions from leading experts and focuses on a particular security discipline. Students attending a SANS Training Event can enhance their learning experience by attending a SANS Summit that precedes or follows their training course.

SANS Cyber Security Summit events are:

  • Highly focussed and efficient - A SANS information security summit is a one or two day event built around one topic.
  • Led by experts - Speakers and panellists are all respected industry leaders and practitioners.
  • Interactive - Ask questions, debate and learn from the experts.
  • Ideal networking opportunities - With so many thought leaders in one place, a SANS Summit is ideal for making contacts and sharing knowledge.
  • Typically hosted before, during or after a SANS Training event, designed to ensure attendees can maximise their learning experience.

A SANS Cyber Security Summit has one aim: to provide a forum for sharing the skills and knowledge necessary to keep people and enterprises safe online. A SANS Summit is an invaluable source of targeted learning.

Expert Summit Speakers

To present at a summit - either as part of a panel or as a lone speaker, you must have deep knowledge and expertise in your field.

At a SANS Cyber Security Summit, attendees will hear key security personnel from real enterprises sharing their experiences, discussing the tough lessons they've learned, and revealing the practical techniques they've evolved.


Some SANS Summits offer vendor panels and showcases, providing the opportunity to learn about cutting edge products and technologies. They are a great place to meet suppliers and discuss current security solutions.

Network & Get Answers

Cyber Security Summits aren't just about listening. A summit is a great place for a professional to make their voice heard in the industry. With so many experts and influential people in one place, input can contribute to the industry's future direction.

SANS Summits are all about interaction. There are panel sessions, group talks and networking opportunities, all intended to foster discussion and the exchange of ideas among professionals.

Packed Agenda

By design, attendees find the agenda at a SANS Cyber Security Summit to be full and intensive. Individual presentations from experts usually last for 45 minutes to an hour. This ensures a wide spectrum of technologies, insights and experiences are explored.
