Highlighting the Pillars of the Region’s Cybersecurity Ecosystem

Thank you for helping make Atlanta Cyber Week a tremendous success!



“Participating in the CISO meetup and the Cybercon 2017 conference was a great experience for WitFoo. We made several new connections, rekindled some existing ones and networked with vendors and customers alike.  The format of the CISO meetup was casual and afforded us the opportunity to convey our story in a very social setting. I have no doubt we will recognize a return from the time we invested attending the meetup and Cybercon conference.”

“The Cyber Week in Atlanta was amazing. We were exposed to venture capital interested in our space, were able to participate in the Atlanta Metro Chamber’s Ireland/Atl Fintech battle, and the amount of C-level executives we engaged with across every event, including Baker Donelson’s Cybercon brought focus and limelight to the needs of not only local companies, but global brands and government organizations, driving the conversation and need for innovation in cyber security, more importantly for us ‘real conversations’ that will lead to opportunity for both sides of the discussion.”
