SANS Cyber Security Summit Speakers

SANS Summit speakers are cyber security thought leaders and top technical experts. They are committed to sharing their skills and knowledge.

SANS Summits are one or two day events that focus on a key element of the cyber security profession. Our summits bring together cyber security's thought leaders for panel discussions, round tables and presentations.

For our students, attending a summit is a very efficient and focussed mode of learning or updating their knowledge with the latest information. Attendees will be presented with a great deal of information in a very compressed period of time.

SANS Summits provide an opportunity to ask questions of respected and renowned industry experts. The events are excellent places to network with peers, industry leaders and fellow professionals.

Leading Speakers

The success of SANS Summits rests partly on the strength of the speakers. They are typically the industry's leading practitioners and proponents.

Attend and hear CISOs, analysts, directors, managers, researchers and investigators - to name just a few - share their experiences and insights.

Our speakers work in high-profile organisations. We have, over the course of recent Summits, welcomed speakers from the Bank of England, Lockheed Martin, Diageo, ABB and ENISA.


SANS operates a rigorous selection process for Summit speakers. The process follows two key phases...

  1. Initially, we hold a six month long public call for papers. Prospective speakers are asked to supply a topic, abstract and professional biography.
  2. An expert advisory board reviews the speakers' synopses. This board generally comprises of senior SANS staff and external professionals.
  3. The board draws up a shortlist and invites the highest standard applicants to attend.
