Following on from the success of the first Security Serious Week last October, we will once again be organising another week to encourage UK plc to become more serious about security! Last year’s week of webinars, events and debate was hugely popular with our community, with thousands of people tuning in online to learn from the best in the biz and hundreds more attending physical events across the UK to help spread security knowledge and make the UK a safer place to live, work and play online.
The campaign is going to be bigger and better than last year and we’d love it if you were able to come on board and support us!
Here are some of the ways you can be part of our campaign:
1.Run an interesting webinar
We can host it for you for free via our IT security guru BrightTALK channel. If you present a webinar we will promote it for you on the website and display your logo on the sponsor page. The sooner we promote this the more people will register.
2. Become one of 10 Gold Sponsors for as little as £2,750, which
will grant you coverage on the front page of the website and supporters’ page, being featured in all promotional materials and being referenced in all media outreach. Gold sponsors will also be given a free booth at the Security Serious Conference and receive all the details of those in attendance as leads.
3. Enter your staff, partners and customers into the new Security
Serious Unsung Heroes Awards on 6th October – recognising all those who are heroes in our industry doing good behind the scenes – it’s free to enter and free to come along – no strings attached. To enter go to https://www.securityserious.com/AwardNomination.aspx. You can also follow the awards @unsung_heroes16.
4.Promote Security Serious Week at the end of your emails, in your
newsletters and basically everywhere to get people thinking more seriously about security – if you want the logo please email me at
Of course you may have another idea about how you can support Security Serious – we’re always open to new ideas so do please send them to us!
We need your help to make this campaign a success, so please tell your friends, colleagues and customers about it so that we can make this a special event for our community. You can follow the campaign and get the latest news by following @SecSerious and @unsung_heroes16. The sooner you enter yourself for webinars and register as a supporter, the sooner we can start publicising your involvement in the campaign and help the UK get serious about security.
We look forward to hearing from you,
The Security Serious Team
