#SecAwareSummit - Venue Confirmed and "Show-n-Tell" Session Added

We have two new exciting updates I wanted to share for the upcoming Security Awareness Summit (#SecAwareSummit) to be held 10 Sep in Dallas. First, the venue has now been confirmed, we will be holding the event at the Marriott. The reason for the delay was we wanted to be sure we had the best location possible. What we liked about this location was not only its size, but more importantly its design enables maximum interaction between attendees. We know that at events like this you can learn just as much from your peers as from the speakers, if not more. So we are doing everything we can to both enable and encourage interaction with other security awareness officers.

The second change is the addition of a 'show-n-tell' session during lunch. During lunch attendees will show off materials or resources they have developed to help communicate their awareness programs. Think of these as informal lightening talks were attendees share. We have done this for several years in the two day MGT433 course and has proven very successful. We are simply taking this one step further for the awareness summit.
