Session Format Options
**Lightning Talks** will provide presenters with 5-10 minutes to highlight a specific topic, resource, or body of work of their choosing. These are intended to be fast-paced snapshots relevant for a larger group of people.
**Collaborative Discussions** will serve as informal spaces for attendees to gather and discuss a specific topic or challenge
that the community is facing. All proposed discussion sessions should be solutions-oriented and include a tangible output (actionable next steps, documented gaps in the space, etc.). On average, discussions will last around 45 minutes.
**Content Sprints** will focus on developing specific content or documentation that has been identified as necessary or useful by the community. Examples of sprint topics may include developing new or revising existing SAFETAG modules, localizing existing content or resources, or developing tools or resources that can be used community-wide to track impact or success. On average, sprints will last around one and a half hours.
**Labs** will provide space for attendees to learn or develop a skill relevant to organizational security. Examples may include learning a specific module from the SAFETAG framework or learning how to capture and respond to advanced threats. On average, labs will last around one and a half hours.
**Feedback Sessions** will provide space for presenters to capture feedback from attendees on a resource, tool, or document related to advancing organizational security. Examples include feedback on the SAFETAG framework/interface; feedback on a specific tool or platform used during a training or audit; or feedback on a tool that streamlines reporting. On average, feedback sessions will last around one and a half hours.
