CONFERENCE TRACKS



Join us for two action-packed days featuring nationally known speakers and entrepreneurs providing new insight to the world of cybersecurity.

  • Track A: Cyber Risk
    • Cybersecurity risks and threats – both internal and external - continue to occur and change at a rapid pace. New threats emerge daily. Analyzing the potential for loss and establishing methodologies for mitigating risk is one of the fastest evolving areas within the cybersecurity domain. New rules and regulations add to the burden of managing compliance and cyber threats simultaneously. This track brings together speakers in areas specializing in Cyber Insurance, Cyber Law, Threat Mapping, and related areas. Speakers and sessions will focus on what you need to know to minimize risk in your business or enterprise, best practices and emerging methods for analysing and addressing risk.
  • Track B: Cyber Workforce & Education
    • Developing a strong, viable and resilient cyber workforce is vital to the sustainability of public and private entities. With the growing number of cyber attacks springing up throughout the U.S. and abroad, major players are taken a serious interest in grooming the next generation of cyber warriors. This track will take a honest look at cyber education and workforce growth on the local, regional and national level.
  • Track C: Cyber Innovation
    • Effective cyber products and services are hot commodities on the IT spectrum. Innovators with data protection solutions that enable both small and large enterprises to secure and protect networks with limited interference are often sought after. Maryland is a hub of cyber innovation that equips both public and private industry with world-class technologies built for next generation cyber protection and awareness. This track will showcase innovative cyber technologies.
  • Track D: Cyber Investments & Emerging Opportunities
    • According to Gartner, Inc., worldwide spending on information security was projected to reach $71.1 billion in 2014. In 2015, the IT research firm sees that rate accelerating to 8.1%, for a total of $76.9 billion. This data alone highlights the importance of staying on the forefront of cyber investments, M&A and emerging areas including digital health and innovation. This track will focus on cybersecurity investments, the evolving needs of investors and new and emerging technological discoveries.
