This Year, Billington Cybersecurity is a Proud Supporter of the White Hat Gala to benefit Children’s Hospital Foundation.


The White Hat organization was established in 2004 in the United Kingdom to protect vulnerable children through charitable means. Following this model, White Hat USA was organized in 2012 with the goal of raising money to help Children’s National Medical Center while providing networking opportunities for members of the Cyber community. This event brings Cyber industry leaders together for an evening of entertainment, dining and inspiration.  This event has raised $1.5 million in support of Children’s National and the children and families that it serves. We are thrilled to continue building this event and celebrate the 5th anniversary of the White Hat Gala.
