Tuesday, June 9, 2020

SILVER SPRING, Md.—The second annual AcceleRISE conference, hosted by Security Industry Association’s RISE community for young security professionals and professionals new to the industry, will now be held virtually, July 27-31, as opposed to taking place in Austin, Texas as announced in February 2020. 

Although the conference has gone virtual, what Katie Greatti, associate director of certification at SIA, staff liaison for the SIA RISE committee and conference manager for AccelerRISE, said in the initial announcement still rings true: “AcceleRISE has addressed a gap in the security industry helping young talent build meaningful connections, learn about emerging trends and discover fresh perspectives. For the 2020 event, SIA will offer attendees a mix of blended learning sessions including team-building exercises, keynotes, panel discussions, networking activities and workshops on critical security topics, business and career management, and more.”

Designed to ignite new thinking, strengthen leadership and sharpen business acumen in young security talent, attendees will leave this "essential experience for tomorrow's security leaders" with:

  • Insights on how to be more productive; 
  • An understanding of the latest security trends and how they impact the industry; and 
  • Tools and guidance to help accomplish goals and forge a career path in the security industry.
