news from SINET ITSEF 2016
The tenth annual IT Security Entrepreneurs Forum (ITSEF) concluded in Mountain View, California, on Wednesday, April 20, 2016. Organized by the Security Innovation Network (SINET), with the support of the Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate and a number of industry sponsors, ITSEF intends to bring security entrepreneurs together with potential customers and investors in an ecosystem of innovation capable of addressing the challenge presented by sophisticated cyber attacks.
The meetings this week are particularly meant to “connect the ecosystem of the entrepreneur in Silicon Valley.” The account we publish today highlights contributions by Canada's Ministry of Defense, Australia's Data61, and the US Department of Homeland Security's Science and Technology Directorate. We'll conclude our coverage with tomorrow's issue, when we summarize some of the views industry leaders expressed at ITSEF.
