Comilion CEO to Discuss Cyber Security Collaboration Roadblocks at CiConnect Conference

Kobi Freedman and Navin Chaddha of Mayfield will Explore What’s Needed to Clear the Way for Cybersecurity Information Sharing




Kobi Freedman is Co-Founder and CEO of Comilion, which has developed a unified collaboration platform for security intelligence sharing and threat investigations in regulated and highly sensitive industries. Kobi has been immersed in the cyber security arena for over 15 years, first in the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) and then working with private sector companies. He participates in numerous Israeli and global policy work groups that set standards for cyber defense.



Navin Chaddha, Managing Director, Mayfield, is a proven serial entrepreneur and venture investor. He has been named a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum, has ranked on the Forbes Midas List of Top 100 Tech Investors for 2012 and several years prior, was listed as a Top 12 VC Hotshot by Red Herring, and named as a Power Player West, Mobile, Cloud and Green Power Player by Always On.



The current approach to cyber security, where organizations rely on internal resources and capabilities to defend themselves is not working. Primarily because attackers - including criminal gangs and nation states - are better organized, share intelligence and collaborate to carry out attacks. To address this weakness, President Obama recently proposed measures to encourage broad sharing of cybersecurity threat information within industry and with government. In this Q&A session, Freedman and Chaddha will discuss what is holding back cyber security collaboration between organizations including consumer and corporate privacy laws, and industry regulatory mandates. They will also explore what technical measures are needed to address these roadblocks and facilitate cyber security intelligence sharing and threat investigation collaboration between organizations.
