Cyber Espionage's Three-Legged Stool Dilemma

Cyber espionage is a worldwide multi-billion dollar problem for every technologically advanced nation; even the ones that the U.S. traditionally considers its adversaries (Russia and China). 

Think of it as a stool with three legs: Targets (High Value Technologies), Actors (both State and non-State), and Defenses (ways that we can protect those HVTs). 

The reason why companies and government agencies continue to lose their expensive HVTs to their rivals and adversaries is that their three legged stool is missing one or more of its legs. It's really as simple as that.

At Suits and Spooks DC (January 11-12, 2017) we'll take a deep dive into how governments and corporations need to assess these three components by discovering answers to the following questions:

What are the most valuable technologies of 2017 and beyond?
Which threat actors are targeting those technologies, and how?
How can you best defend your technologies against those threat actors?

Day one will address the first two questions while day two will showcase about a dozen companies whose focus is defending against acts of cyber espionage.

If you have a topic in mind that you think would be a good fit for our event, send over a title, abstract, and your bio. Our current speakers include Dr. David Bray (CIO at the FCC) and Lewis Shepherd (formerly with Microsoft and the Defense Intelligence Agency).

If you work for a cyber security company and would like to be considered for a 15 minute slot on day two to showcase your product for our government and corporate attendees, contact me at your earliest opportunity. We're only going to feature 12 companies.


  1. A great scene-setter for what should be a fantastic opportunity to explore important topics. Good going, Jeff.
