This post provides an update on the Security Innovation Network (SINET) Workshop and Showcase, and also provides an invitation for you to attend this potentially game-changing event (I serve on the SINET steering committee and would truly appreciate seeing you at the showcase).
Keynotes will be delivered by: General Keith B. Alexander, Commander of the U.S. Cyber Command & Director of the National Security Agency, and His Excellency Jaak Aaviksoo, Minister of Education and Research, Former Ministry of Defense, Republic of Estonia. The Showcase was created for sixteen innovative Cybersecurity technologies to be selected from 100 applications by our steering committee. The SINET 16 will present in front of representatives from the investment, research, commercial, civilian, defense and intelligence communities. For more information, please click here.
The mission of SINET is to advance innovation and enable global collaboration between the public and private sectors to defeat Cybersecurity threats. The Showcase is supported by the Department of Homeland Security, Science & Technology Directorate, and public and private sponsors.
Please join us as we continue to give the entrepreneurs a voice and advance innovation through collaboration models. The Showcase takes place at the National Press Club - Washington DC, October 25 & 26, 2011
We will soon be announcing the companies that made the list of the top 16 for this event. I've seen the list and believe they are all worthy of the widespread attention this event will give their offerings.
As an example of the types of companies to expect in the SINET Showcase for 2011, consider last years selectees:
