Drataverse is our Drata-powered GRC summit designed to bring risk, compliance, cybersecurity, IT, and technology professionals together. Now in our second year, we have committed to an even more impactful experience than what we first envisioned. 

With this in mind, here are just a few things we are looking forward to on June 12, and what we know will leave a lasting impression.

A Venue Engineered for Connection

Pier 27 offers beautiful views of the Bay Bridge, San Francisco skyline, and the Coit Tower. With floor-to-ceiling windows offering natural lighting throughout the space, this won’t just be any tech conference. Beyond our sessions, we’ve created a warm and inviting space designed to make you feel right at home so that you can connect with other attendees. 

Our first floor is designed specifically with this in mind, and it’s where you will find a sprawling lounge space, our alliance sponsors, and of course, your supply of coffee. Members of our team will also be onsite to help make introductions because, at the end of the day, Drataverse is for the GRC community.

Exclusive Sessions

The FOMO is real at Drataverse. 

Our conference committee hand-selected presenters from dozens of speaking abstracts based on what will offer the most value to attendees. Not only that, the only way you can experience these presentations is by attending, because a majority of them are not going to be available anywhere else or streamed. 

Our goal is to create an immersive experience ripe for knowledge sharing. And, depending on which sessions you choose, you can also gain up to six CPE/CEU hours to support your existing certifications.

Shifting Left to Compliance as Code

AI may be a hot topic, and we’ve certainly got presentations and panels to cover that, but the future of GRC is Compliance as Code. If you’re familiar with the concept of shifting left in security and compliance, you understand it’s as much of a philosophical and cultural change as it is a compliance strategy. 

At Drataverse, you’ll get an exclusive look into how Drata is enabling this movement, and why shifting left is more than just a buzzword.

Charting Your Course

Sessions, connections, and endless coffee are important at any conference, but this isn’t just any conference. 

Our theme this year is Chart Your Course, and that’s because Drata is all about partnering with you to get to the next level. Whether that is the next stage of your professional and personal career growth, or helping you achieve a new level of GRC maturity, Drataverse is built around this concept.

Tony Hawk

Whether you grew up playing Tony Hawk Pro Skater or know the iconic athlete for smashing records, we know our headline keynote will be the perfect cherry on top to an eventful day.

Hawk's entrepreneurial ventures have played a crucial role in popularizing skateboarding on a global scale. A philanthropist at heart, Hawk's dedication to empowering youth is evident through his foundation, The Skatepark Project, which supports underserved communities to create safe and inclusive public skateparks for youth.

In his Drataverse keynote, Hawk will discuss the challenges and opportunities of evolving a career, profession, and industry. You’ll be hearing about his notable career and accomplishments, and diving into his pivotal role in popularizing and transforming the culture of skateboarding. 

Drataverse attendees will be able to participate in a Q&A session following the discussion.
