9th Annual Billington CyberSecurity Summit

Strengthening Cyber Defenses in Partnership

Washington Convention Center, Washington, D.C.

The Annual Billington CyberSecurity Summit is now the leading and most trusted event in federal cybersecurity as evidenced by 11 factors:
* its longevity (going into its 9th year),
* the excellence of the speakers (the last four NSA directors, the DNI, Rep. Will Hurd, the DOD CISO, Commander of USCENTCOM, etc.),
* the support the event receives from the Canadian and UK Ambassadors (who host receptions before and after our conferences at their stunning embassies)
* its size (an estimated 1000+ attendees are expected) and growth in registrations  (over 25 percent last year)
* its depth of cyber content (last year over 60 cyber speakers shared their insights including the CISO for DHS, DOD, HHS, DOT)
* its company’s and conference’s single focus on providing the best cybersecurity education possible since the company was founded in 2010
* its year over year growth in square footage (it has outgrown venues five times and is now held at over 60k square feet of ballroom space at the Washington Convention Center in Washington DC)
* its speakers’ return because their experience was so positive.  Speakers who have participated multiple times include Gen. Nakasone, Essye Miller, Jeff Eisensmith, Ret. ADM Rogers, etc.
*  sponsors of the event return year after year and are some of the world leaders in cyber including Northrop (sponsoring for 6 years), GM, General Dynamics, Lockheed, Palo Alto, FireEye, Cisco, etc.
* the press coverage is widespread;  past Billington events have appeared in the NYT, WSJ, C-SPAN, Reuters, Bloomberg, etc.
* the International speakers have come from around the world to participate including the CEO of the NCSC in the UK, the cyber ambassadors for the UK and Australia, the head of the cyber directorate  in Israel, etc.
* it continually innovates to keep fresh!
