How To Attend Suits and Spooks NYC or DC For Free

Suits and Spooks isn't like any other security conference, which anyone who has attended will tell you. One of the ways that it's different is that you can become a member and receive many of the speaker presentations from events that you can't attend (speakers have the option to share their decks or not).

Benefits include:

  • Free access to a live webcast (if offered) 
  • A 15% discount on all Suits and Spooks events
  • A copy of all speaker decks (with speaker approval) from every Suits and Spooks event so that you don't miss content when you can't attend.
  • A distinctive and incredibly cool metal membership card/event name tag with the Suits and Spooks logo and your name imprinted on it.

If you sign up in the next 24 hours, you'll also receive free admission to our New York City All Stars event on June 19-20 OR our Washington DC event in early 2016. Either one of those events is worth more than the price of your membership ($425) so take advantage of this very limited time offer and join today.

Dan Geer: What Will Cyber Offense and Defense in 2020 Look Like?

I've commissioned Dr. Daniel Geer, the CISO of In-Q-Tel, to give a one hour talk at Suits and Spooks NYC on June 19 on what cyber offensive and defensive operations of the future might look like in 2020. Some of the questions that he'll be examining are:

  1. How will the disparity of the world's wealth be impacted by even the world's poor having an online presence?
  2. How will nations'  defense budgets be impacted when offensive resources become ubiquitous and attacks can be routed and re-routed from everywhere?
  3. What effect will biomedicine have in bringing the world closer to digital Singularity and what would the security implications of that be?

If you heard Dan's keynote at Blackhat last year, you know what a brilliant speaker he is. Unlike Blackhat, at Suits and Spooks New York, you'll actually have the opportunity to speak with Dan and have a conversation about this provocative look at the future.

PLUS - you'll have the same opportunity to hear and interact with almost a dozen other great speakers including:

  • Joe FitzPatrick - an internationally-known firmware hacker
  • David Kilcullen - a leading global conflict strategist
  • Zach Tumin - a Deputy Commissioner of the NYPD
  • Carmen Medina - a former Deputy Director of Intelligence at CIA
  • Stewart Baker - former General Counsel at NSA
  • Christofer Hoff - VP and Security CTO at Juniper Networks
  • Niloo Howe - Paladin Partners and Endgame
  • Janina Gavankar - Internationally-known musician, actress and geek
  • a soon-to-be announced blackhat hacker who knows Anonymous from the inside out.
Join us as we kick off the Summer Solstice weekend at the ultra-cool Soho House in NYC and spend two days listening to and speaking with these incredible speakers and more.
