"Summits are a great way to meet and talk to the trail blazers; the individuals who each in their own way help shine a light for the rest of the community." - Michael Decker

Learn, share, and engage with fellow cybersecurity leaders 

Are you a seasoned security leader working to build your program and gain executive support? Or are you a new security manager growing and getting the most out of your team? Maybe you came from a deeply technical role or a non-security role altogether and are looking for tips, tricks, and best practices to solve your day-to-day security leadership and management challenges?
