Cyber space is a global digital domain with no geographic boundaries, no enforceable rules and near limitless potential for abuse. And when things go wrong, they do so at the speed of light. This rapidly evolving cyber threat landscape combined with the increasing pace and magnitude of attacks requires a re-thinking of how cyber security operators ensure the security and integrity of their systems, networks and data.
Operators worldwide see the need to come together to share experience, advance best practices, identify emerging threats and evaluate cutting edge cyber security innovation. The Global Cyber Innovation Summit is the venue for this essential collaboration. This invitation-only event brings together the Global 2000 CISO community, cyber technology innovators, policy thought leaders and members of the cyber investment community for exchange of ideas, discussion and collaboration designed to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of cyber security strategies and solutions. Join us at the tip of the spear.
