International Information Sharing Conference Day 2 Highlights

We are officially two weeks away from the inaugural International Information Sharing Conference (IISC) taking place at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington D.C. October 31-November 1, 2017. Register today!

The conference itself will convene practitioners from small and midsize businesses to multi-national corporations, and from information sharing newcomers to well-established cybersecurity organizations—all in effort to grow the community, share best practices, hear from senior government officials, and introduce the latest in services and platforms to help organizations elevate security around the globe.

Day two of the IISC is set to be just as action-packed as the first day of this unique event, which concludes National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Highlights include a presentation from Rick Lipsey, Deputy Director of the Information Sharing and Analysis Organization (ISAO SO), on The Evolution of the Information Sharing Community, followed by a “must not miss” talk from Dr. Greg White, Executive Director of the ISAO SO, about Trust within the Information Sharing Ecosystem. The afternoon sessions kick off with a keynote lunch from invited congressmen for a discourse on policy and cybersecurity information sharing.
