Woburn, MA – September 13, 2021 – Today Kaspersky announced plans for the next Security Analyst Summit (SAS), inviting cybersecurity specialists once again to join and discuss the changes in the IT security landscape and share their knowledge on recent, sophisticated threats. The conference program is spread over two days and will take place September 28-29, 2021.
The SAS Conference is an annual event that unites renowned IT security researchers, global law enforcement, academia and government agencies. It aims to improve collaboration in the fight against cybercrime, making the SAS Conference the ideal place for debate, information sharing and display of cutting-edge research.
After two previous successful online editions, the Security Analyst Summit will take place virtually September 28-29 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. EDT each day. The program of the conference will cover the most crucial cybersecurity trends observed during the past year. The attendees will receive an exclusive opportunity to explore recent and freshly discovered APTs, insights, and threat intelligence use cases.
During the conference, the experts will discuss pressing topics that have bugged us throughout 2021, from supply chain attacks to commercial spyware. In addition to presenting vulnerability and threat research, the panelists will hold several workshops and new trainings to help threat hunters become better cybersecurity professionals.
Topics that will be covered at SAS include:
In addition to Kaspersky speakers, the program features experts from PwC, Mandiant, Nex, Group IB, Sourcegraph, NTT Security (Japan) KK and Yandex.
“Considering all the risks that are still out there, we are sad to announce that we will be unable to meet in person at this year’s SAS,” said Sergey Novikov, deputy director of Kaspersky’s GReAT. “Still, there is a strong need for the cybersecurity community to connect and exchange knowledge. That is why we made the decision to hold SAS 2021 online. We have received a lot of positive feedback from our two previous virtual conferences and return with a new and improved program. This time, we will include trainings prepared especially for SAS. Third time is a charm, so we hope this will be the last time we meet from our homes rather than on the beach with a couple of beers in our hands.”
