The Security Awareness Special Interest Group (SASIG) is a subscription-free networking forum. Its aim is to improve trust in the online environment. Membership now represents hundreds of organisations of all sizes from across the world and from all sectors, public and private. SASIG has established itself as a leading and credible voice of the corporate sector in the great information assurance and cybersecurity debate. Its membership is drawn almost exclusively from CSOs, CISOs, SIROs, DSOs and their staff with responsibility for security within their organisations. Professionals from other disciplines (risk, HR, legal, supply etc.) are also increasingly attending, together with representatives from government and academia.
“In 2003, I set up SASIG as a place for frontline security professionals to be able to gather, to safely and freely exchange views and concerns about the softer issues of cybersecurity. Now, 15 years later, SASIG has established itself as a leading and credible voice of the corporate sector in addressing the more difficult and less tangible cybersecurity issues that others avoid. The level of debate at our meetings is consistently and extraordinarily revealing and rewarding. We would love to see you there.”
Martin Smith MBE FSyI, Chairman and Founder of SASIG
At SASIG we are committed to advancing knowledge within the security sector through presentations and debates at our events. We focus on the softer issues. We run over 35 meetings each year, all free to attend. The Chatham House Rule is strictly enforced and universally respected, all meetings are vendor-neutral, and suppliers and members of the press are routinely excluded. This environment allows for sensitive, contentious and important issues to be explored and discussed in an extraordinarily revealing and rewarding way, leading to a new level of thinking. It is here that ideas flow freely, best practices are shared, and professional networking thrives. The continued success of SASIG is defined by its informality, and by its place at the leading edge of the debate.
