ISMG's Global Summit Series Continues with Successful Washington Event

Experts Tackle Timely Hot Topics, Including WannaCry Ransomware Outbreak 

Princeton, N.J. May 18, 2017

Information Security Media Group, the leading media provider to the information security community, continued its global summit series with its Breach Prevention Summit at the Renaissance Dupont Circle May 16-17 in Washington, D.C. The event featured influential cybersecurity leaders, including Art Coviello, former CEO at RSA Security; Michael Daniel, president of the Cyber Threat Alliance and former special assistant to the president; and Gregory Wilshusen, director at the U.S. Government Accountability Office.

The Washington summit brought together leaders from the public sector and a wide variety of business sectors to address the fast-changing cybersecurity environment. Timely topics included the response to the WannaCry ransomware outbreak, President Trump’s new cybersecurity executive order and the dismissal of FBI Director James Comey. 

“ISMG’s timely Breach Prevention Summit in Washington provided a platform for myself and other industry veterans to address cybersecurity in the era of Donald Trump,” says Steve Chabinsky, the FBI’s former deputy assistant director/cyber. 

Technology companies featured in the exhibit hall and in informational sessions included Agari, CA Technologies, NSS Labs, Arbor Networks, Skybox Security and Trend Micro.  

“ISMG offers the highest caliber content on its websites to information security practitioners on a daily basis,” says Eric Chabrow, executive editor of GovInfoSecurity. “Our summits give us an extraordinary opportunity to offer in-depth analysis from thought leaders as well as interact with security practitioners, influencers and technology providers.” 

In addition to the event in Washington, ISMG has held summits in San Francisco, Mumbai and Atlanta so far in 2017. Upcoming events will be held in Chicago, New York, Toronto, Sydney, London, Singapore, Bangalore and New Delhi.
