If your calendar is filling up with virtual events, make sure you leave space for Tessian Human Layer Security Summit on September 9. What is it? A (virtual) event featuring industry leaders from the world’s top organizations that was designed to help business, security, compliance, and IT professionals prepare for what’s next…whatever that may be.  

Keep reading to find out what you’ll learn, who the speakers are, and why you have to register now.

1. You’ll get an FBI agent’s perspective on election hacking 

With the US election coming up in November, people and media around the world are talking about election hacking. That’s why we’re bringing Elvis Chan from the FBI to the Human Layer Security Summit “stage”. 

Elvis will review key events from the 2016 elections, highlight the tactics nation-state hackers are most likely to use this year, and offer advice on how to protect yourself and your organization from being hacked.

2. You’ll hear from Howard Schultz and other industry leaders from AWS, Salesforce, and PwC about how they’re leading their organizations through change

If you’re struggling to keep up with the pace of new cyber threats while also supporting stressed employees as they continue working remotely, you’re not alone. So, why not lean on your peers and learn from their experiences?

At this event, experts from AWS, Salesforce, PwC, TrustedSec, MSCI, Euromoney Institutional Investor, and more will be sharing their anecdotes and advice to help you create future-proof security strategies. You’ll also hear from business titan and the former CEO of Starbucks, Howard Schultz.

But, adapting to the ‘new normal” isn’t the only thing we’ll be talking about…

“Understanding how stress impacts behavior is critical to improving cybersecurity.”
Jeff Hancock Professor at Stanford University

3. A Stanford psychology professor will explain why people make mistakes that lead to breaches (and what you can do about it)

Tessian’s latest research report, The Psychology of Human Error, shows that nearly half (43%) of people have made mistakes at work that compromised cybersecurity. But, why do people make mistakes? Register now and you’ll find out on September 9.

Jeff Hancock, Professor at Stanford University will identify factors that make people – just like you and me – more likely to fall for phishing scams and fire off emails to the wrong people. 

Spoiler Alert: Burnout and distraction are two of the top contributors. 

4. You can be a part of the conversation

Just because the event is virtual doesn’t mean you can’t get involved…

Throughout the three-hour-long event, you’ll be able to submit questions to be answered live. Whether you want to ask Rachel Beard, the Principal Security Technical Architect at Salesforce how she’s combatting hacker’s increasingly sophisticated phishing tactics or want to probe David Kennedy about penetration testing post-pandemic, this is your opportunity. Don’t miss out!

5. You’ll walk away with truly actionable advice

As we’ve said, Tessian Human Layer Security Summit was designed to help business and security leaders prepare for what’s next. The key, then, is to make sure that all attendees walk away (er, log off) with advice they can actually put into action.

You should expect to learn how to stop your employees from falling for social engineering attacks, ways in which you can tailor training for better results, why people-centric security strategies are more essential now than ever, and more. Click here for a full agenda

6. You’ll learn what the future holds, according to a Forrester security analyst

Because of Forrester’s insights, reports, and analysis, the firm is trusted by business and security leaders around the world and across industries. 

We’re delighted, then, to be welcoming Joseph Blankenship, Forrester’s VP, Research Director serving Security & Risk Professionals. He’ll be offering his expert opinion on where the industry is heading next and best practices to help you implement strategies in emerging areas of security. 

Remember: You can ask questions! What do you want to ask Joseph? 

7. It’s the last HLS Summit of the year

In March, Tessian hosted the world’s first Human Layer Security Summit. In June, we hosted the world’s second Human Layer Security Summit. In September, we’re hosting the world’s third Human Layer Security Summit and it’s the last big HLS event of 2020.

And, because we’ve taken feedback from over two thousand people who have attended previously, this will be the best one yet.
