MeyerRose Group president to speak at 3rd Annual Billington Cybersecurity Summit

July 16, 2012

As cyber threats proliferate, cybersecurity has become a top growth opportunity for organizations like yours. In a survey of over 270 federal government contractors, 45% of respondents cited cybersecurty as their top area of focus for the next 12 months. Newly discovered threats such as Flame, botnets, phishing attacks, and other advanced persistent threats continue to confound you. Cybersecurity spending is increasing even as growth in overall IT Federal spending is declining. And no industry sector, company, or organization is immune to these threats.

Billington CyberSecurity’s 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 to a elite cross-section of 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.

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.

This executive level summit brings together a talented cross-section of working level government and industry voices. Last year, over 70-percent of attendees were director-level or above. The event sold out in its first two years.
