“I wanted to create an conference that would provide valuable cybersecurity insights for Business
leaders. Understanding impact of cybersecurity on Board level issues, Investment decisions, Mergers & Acquisitions, Governance and leveraging the Audit functions in a company for supporting a mature
Security &  Governance program.

Understanding components of a holistic security program and the current threat landscape their business is operating in.” Since its inception, this conference has achieved the goal of a 1 day Cybersecurity Business Primer.
