Update on KEYS 2021

In March, Tandem had to make the tough decision to cancel the 10th annual KEYS Conference. This was a decision we did not take lightly. The KEYS Conference has become a highlight for our company and our customers because it is a time we can all come together to learn, grow, and share. But, with concerns surrounding COVID-19, cancelling was the obvious choice.

What We Did Instead

We developed a lot of great educational content in preparation for KEYS we didn't want to waste. We used this content and created the Summer Series, a set of webinar educational events taking place once a week in June and July of 2020. That's nine FREE webinars about compliance, cybersecurity, and how to better use Tandem!

What We Have Planned for KEYS 2021

To be perfectly honest, we don't know what to plan for KEYS 2021. We are constantly monitoring COVID-19 to determine the most appropriate approach. At this point, we do not feel comfortable making plans for an in-person Spring 2021 event.

As a result, we are waiting 3 months to reassess and make a final decision on the 2021 KEYS Conference.

Will KEYS 2021 be Virtual?

You may be wondering, "Will Tandem be providing a virtual conference in 2021 if the decision is to not have an in-person event?"


Attendees report the top benefit of KEYS is the community and connections created during the event. It's an amazing experience to connect with people who share a similar goal of trying to better their organization's cybersecurity and compliance practices. This sense of community is very hard to recreate with an online conference event.

With this in mind, we are considering using the time we would normally spend creating an amazing conference to create some other service which would foster community among our Tandem users and cybersecurity professionals.

Next Steps

We are going to take a few months to watch and wait. This should give us time to see what options will be available to us. In the meantime, the Tandem Team will be planning and discussing multiple paths forward with the end goal of creating and fostering community amongst our users.
