MILPITAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), the intelligence-led security company, today announced details for FireEye Cyber Defense Summit 2019, taking place October 7-10 at the Washington Hilton in Washington, D.C.
Among the keynote speaker lineup, Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will engage in a Q&A discussion with FireEye CEO, Kevin Mandia on the geopolitical landscape and its implications for global cyber security today. Secretary Clinton has been a practicing attorney and law professor, an advocate of internet freedom, First Lady, and U.S. Senator from New York, in addition to serving as the 67th United States Secretary of State.
“Differences among nations today, driven by friction in geopolitics, economics, security and technology, are having a significant impact on global cyber conflict. Secretary Clinton’s extensive knowledge of foreign policy, her firsthand experience on the front lines of diplomacy, and her understanding of the challenges facing open, democratic societies give her a unique perspective on some of the most pressing conversations shaping our world today,” said Mandia.
Empowering Defenders. Together.
“Now in its 10th year, Cyber Defense Summit brings together the brightest minds across the public and private sectors to advance the cyber security mission,” Mandia continued. “Last year’s Summit was attended by more than 1,200 individuals from 36 countries, and we expect this year’s event to connect even more security-conscious professionals.”
Mandia will also take to the keynote stage. Further speakers will be announced on the FireEye Cyber Defense Summit website over the coming weeks and months. In addition to keynotes and general sessions on October 9 and 10, the Summit will feature sessions across three tracks:
