LOCO Cyber Meetup

October 11 @ 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM


Thanks to everyone who came out to our Sept. 13 Meetup! We returned to Venture X co-working space in One Loudoun (thank you to Richie Parsons at Venture X for hosting us). Our featured speaker was James Leach, the Managing Partner and Co-founder of Fortreum. James gave an excellent presentation on the compliance requirements for doing business in the US public sector market. Key takeaways: Your business should have a defined plan to meet milestones and certifications along the maturity model. Be prepared to build the business case and sales pipeline to justify investing in these requirements.

Special thanks to James and Fortreum for stepping up to support the group and for providing the food and drinks at our September Meetup.

Save The Date: Our next Loudoun Cybersecurity Meetup will be on Tuesday Oct. 11, back at Venture X in Ashburn, where we’ll hear from Bryan Ware. Drawing on his previous roles in government, including serving as the nation’s cybersecurity executive at DHS CISA, and his current role as the CEO of LookingGlass Cyber Solutions, a cyber threat intelligence firm, Bryan is highly regarded as a technology leader and innovator in cybersecurity and emerging technologies. Bryan will present on “U.S. Cyber Strategy: What’s on the Horizon.”

Bryan will address:

  • U.S. cyber strategy pre-2020
  • Events that changed/are changing our current understanding of cyber landscape
  • What the next 5 years will likely bring and the impact to public and private sector cybersecurity.

The Meetup gets going at 5:30p, and Mr. Ware will start speaking about 6:10. Invite a friend and come out to meet some new ones! Hope to see you there!
