TESTIMONIALS

“The Cipher Brief’s Cybersecurity Summit unquestionably ranks with the very best of the numerous cyber conferences in which I have participated. The level and range of expert dialogue are always unmatched, and the agenda unerringly focuses attention on the issues that are most critical to government and the private sector. Beyond that, the expert-led sessions and simulation exercises do a wonderful job of providing the audience insights into the thinking of policy makers and consistently spotlight the gaps in our cyber organizations’ authorities, resources, and capabilities.”

—General David Petraeus, former Commander of the Surge in Iraq, US Central Command, and Coalition and US Forces in Afghanistan, and former Director of the CIA


Co-hosted by Cipher Brief CEO & Publisher Suzanne Kelly and former NSA Deputy Director Rick Ledgett

"The Cipher Brief hit a grand home run with The Cybersecurity Summit. The speakers were broadly diverse, often provocative, and always enlightening. The cyber exercise was especially well done; it certainly brought to light some useful 'it’s not as easy as it looks' insights. In summary, a great job; maybe the best such session I’ve experienced.”

—Lt Gen James R. Clapper, Former U.S. Director of National Intelligence

“The Cipher Brief’s Cybersecurity Summit is unlike anything I have attended in terms of both the level of expertise and the range of perspectives on cybersecurity issues.”

—Matt Olsen, Chief Security and Trust Officer, Uber
