What is KEYS?

The KEYS Conference is an annual Tandem user group and information security conference created to provide Knowledge Essential to Your Security. What you spend on the conference will be given back to you in knowledge, relationships, and practical skills you can take home and share with your own financial institution.

Attending the conference allows you to connect with other security and compliance professionals from all over the US. In 2018, KEYS had attendees from 18 different states, and 46% were new to the conference.

The attendees of this conference describe it as one of the most valuable events they attend all year and they report returning home with ideas they can implement immediately. The conference includes 4 tracks and 3 general sessions covering the topics of information security, risk and compliance, and Tandem training.
