Event description


The 3rd Annual Cybersecurity Summit addresses the global urgency to remain cyber secure. Join us on September 27, at Washington D.C.’s National Press Club as we host an elite cross-section of over 25 distinguished federal, state and industry cyber experts who will provide targeted insights about late-breaking developments surrounding increasingly sophisticated threats to critical infrastructure—the number one security issue facing Congress and the nation. Confirmed speakers include current and former senior defense and intelligence cybersecurity experts including:

John C. (Chris) Inglis, Deputy Director,

National Security Agency

General Michael Hayden (Ret.), Former Director, NSA and CIA

and Principal, The Chertoff Group

Plus, you'll hear:


His Excellence Toomas Henrik Ilves, President of Estonia

Moreover, learn what DoD, DIS, DISA, DHS, NSA, NIST, FBI, the U.S. Secret Service, INTERPOL Washington, and an array of cybersecurity organizations are doing to implement safeguards that mitigate cyber threats, staunch the effects of high-profile cyber weapons—Duqu, Stuxnet, and Flame—and cyber crimes against critical networking infrastructure within sectors such as in energy, finance, and transportation.

Your 5 Benefits of Attending:

  1. Hear the latest cybersecurity strategies and spending priorities from senior level government decision-makers from the Defense/Intel community, DHS, NIST, NERC and many others.
  2. Get the most up-to-date and exclusive analyses on the latest advanced persistent threats such as Flame from Eugene Kaspersky, whose company uncovered the Flame virus.
  3. Discover the latest insights about FISMA, FedRAMP, smart grid cybersecurity, situation awareness in the financial sector, mobile and cloud security, and big data vulnerabilities.
  4. Hear the latest about continuous monitoring and funding priorities from leading DHS authorities.
  5. Network with leading government cybersecurity experts, exchange business cards and build important relationships for the future.

The security of our nation's critical infrastructure is a top priority--of lawmakers in Congress, of the President, of Federal agencies, of industry and of the military. How can we best secure our electric grids, IT infrastructure, banks, military and government networks and natural gas pipelines from cyber attack? While legislation needs to be passed, until this happens, it is vitally important to advance the discussion about critical infrastructure between all sides.

Advancing the serious conversation about critical infrastructure cybersecurity is the key goal of this year's conference. Given the timeliness of the topic and the high level speakers confirmed to date, this Cybersecurity Summit is expected to follow the first two annual summits and sell out.

Some 25 distinguished speakers are confirmed and listed below. We are honored to have them share their insights and very much hope you will set aside the day to learn about one of the most important and groundbreaking issues facing our country and your organization.
