Conference theme: Changing the Economics of Computer Network Defense

Submission deadline: 24 January

Enterprises spend a considerable amount of resources protecting themselves from cyber attacks. Yet most organizations have no idea if they’re investing enough or making the best use of their resources.

Borderless Cyber 2017 will examine the economics of cyber security, identifying shifts in strategies and practices that can lead to more informed decision-making.

We invite you to be part of the conversation. If you have ideas and experiences worth sharing with people who are responsible for setting their organization’s cyber strategy, please submit an abstract. Presentations should be aimed at C-level executives and directors of threat intelligence, incident response, risk and audit. Stories of admirable success and worthy failure, fresh approaches, new research, and policy trends are all welcome.

Since the conference will be held in New York City, Borderless Cyber will be highlighting presentations from a broad range of industries including financial services, retail, international business, government, and others.

The Program Committee is particularly interested in submissions that offer:
  • Insights on how to deploy proactive and reactive threat intelligence automation to save time and resources;
  • Effective strategies on changing the economics for adversaries and defenders;
  • Lessons learned from responding to actual attacks or preventing breaches.

All presentations will generally be 30 minutes in length, including Q&A. The Program Committee will peer-review all proposals and reserves the right to adapt or restructure proposals submitted to ensure an interesting and compelling program. Vendors are encouraged to submit case studies in partnership with their customers provided the customer has agreed to serve as the lead speaker.
