On October 6, 2015, Suits and Spooks will host a unique invite-only event in the “Wine Cave” at the exclusive Wingtip Club in San Francisco.
Topics such as security markets, counter espionage, the global supply chain, and Russia will be analyzed by the intelligence veterans and security executives who are expected to attend this luxurious, invitation-only event.
E.J. Hilbert, director at PwC Risk Assurance and former FBI special agent specializing in cybercrime, will kick off the event. Before the lunch break, Christopher Burgess, CEO and founder of Provender and former CIA employee, will share insight with the audience on economic espionage.
Simon Gibson, an advisor to early security startups and the World Economic Forum, formerly head of IT security at Bloomberg, will hold a talk titled “Defending users in social networks from falling victim to the first stage in the kill chain.”
Since Russia is a hot topic right now in the security community, Anna Vassilieva, an expert in contemporary Russian politics, will discuss the lessons learned by Russia as a result of Western sanctions.
Endgame Chief Strategy Officer and Paladin Capital Group Operating Partner Niloofar Razi Howe will explain “How to build CFO buy-in about cyber security issues.” Jeffrey Carr, founder of Taia Global and the Suits and Spooks conference, will discuss supply chain security.
In addition to interesting and useful talks, attendees of the day-long conference will be offered breakfast, lunch, and a tour of the Wingtip Club. At the end of the day, attendees can take part in whiskey tasting while networking with other delegates.
One of the things that makes Suits and Spooks a unique event is the low speaker-to-attendee ratio, which encourages debate and discussion. In fact, participants are given the opportunity to challenge speakers during their talks.
