2020 escar USA Canceled 


Due to concerns around the rapidly evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, SAE International and Isits AG (International School of IT Security) have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 escar USA event, originally scheduled for May 20-21, in Plymouth, Michigan. Before making this decision, we extensively monitored and evaluated health guidance from international health authorities, government- and corporate-imposed travel restrictions, and the State of Emergency issued by the United States federal government. 

We remain firmly committed to prioritizing the health and safety of our speakers, customers, partners and staff who are attending our events, and apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation has caused. 

Please see our Frequently Asked Questions for additional information regarding the cancellation.
