Testimonials

“Mr. Billington is one of the most creative, enthusiastic and mission driven people on this planet. Every engagement with him starts and ends with ‘How can I help serve mission better/more?’ which underpins everything about him and his character. I’m also awe struck by the company he keeps — he knows everyone and in conversation, each person says nothing but great things about him, his work and his vision for the Billington events that he leads and his quest to bring like-minded folks together. Tom, thank you so much for all you do for this community!”

— Tim Teal, President, SIXGEN (retired after 33 years in government service, most recently as the Director, J6/J8/J9, Cyber National Mission Force, U.S. Cyber Command)
“I met Tom in 2014 while I was the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Cybersecurity & Communications and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as he hosted a cybersecurity summit in New York City. It was phenomenal and featured senior cyber leaders from around the world, the US government, the financial sector, academia, and more. Tom continues to bring the most important cyber executives, policy makers, thinkers, researchers, and operators together in valuable engagements that educate, inform, entertain, provoke and help develop lasting positive relationships and professional networks. If you can only attend one cybersecurity event, I recommend a Billington Cybersecurity Summit be the one you invest in. They are the best!”

— Brig. Gen. (Ret.) Greg Touhill, President, Cyxtera Federal Group (First U.S. CISO who served for over 25 years in the military)
“Tom has created, organized, and led the best Cyber Security Summits in Washington D.C. over the last 10 years. No one has been able to garner nationally and internationally known speakers and experts in the field as Tom Billington. I’ve been proud to have been associated with him and his company for the last 8 of them. Due to his leadership and foresight, Tom was also able to create and host Automotive and International cybersecurity Summits at exactly the right time when security implications came to the forefront for these industry and agencies.”
