The Society for Information Risk Analysts (SIRA) Board wants to do our part in inspiring and educating the next generation of information risk analysts. For this reason, we are offering scholarships for our two biggest events of the year: SIRAcon 2020 (August 25-27, 2020) and the SIRA Quantitative Risk Skills Seminar (September 23-24, 2020).
Both scholarships are needs-based, meaning you want to attend but the cost of the ticket would create financial hardship for you. We especially encourage people from underrepresented groups - people of color, women, LGBTQ people, and people with disabilities to apply. It is our hope that this enables people to network, collaborate with peers, hear presentations from industry leaders, and learn quantitative risk techniques when they may not otherwise have had the opportunity.
The number of scholarships is limited and will be given to those who qualify on a first-come, first-served basis. All applications that are not selected will automatically be placed on a waitlist.
SIRAcon 2020 is virtual this year and features 14 speakers covering a wide range of topics in the information risk management profession.

SIRA Quantitative Risk Skills Seminar
The second annual SIRA Quantitative Risk Skills Seminar is returning this year, and it’s virtual. This year, we’ve added a second day, much more content, and a focus on risk fundamentals. All skill levels are welcome. More information can be found here.

The SIRA Board extends our deepest gratitude to our sponsors and our members for making this financially possible.
