Where Industry Leaders Shape the Future

Hosted by Executive Alliance, the 2017 National Security Leaders Symposium was held October 22-24, 2017 at The Ritz-Carlton in Naples, FL. This year's Symposium opened against a backdrop of industry challenges that coalesced the community and had the room buzzing. With some of the top minds in the nation on hand, there was no shortage of lively debate and the breadth of knowledge garnered was unprecedented. Engaging with their peers on the most pressing issues, attendees offered their predictions of future trends, gained insights from industry leaders, and participated in interview discussions and breakout roundtables.

The 2017 National Symposium was truly an example of the tip of the sword and we thank all of the Hosts, Speakers, Attendees and Sponsors for a stellar event.

IT SECURITY LEADERSHIP

Intelligence from Security's Digital Gunslingers

In today’s digital world, information security leaders are the new stewards of the wide open spaces as they work to tame this frontier. With savviness, passion, and sophisticated leadership skills they face the daunting task of protecting some of the world’s largest brands. Where the lawmen of the mid-1800's were symbols of protection, so today are the executives that contributed to "There's A New Sheriff In Town."

  • It's like having a who's who of security at your beck and call. Many of these contributors have the knowledge to draft a book of their own, but combined with each contribution from their field of expertise -it makes this book a must-have for any serious security executive.
