The conference seeks to discuss issues such as global economic recovery, including other challenges in areas such as education, energy, aging, healthcare, genomics, food, cybersecurity, research & development and investing strategy.

Entitled Cyberwarfare, Privacy, and the Economy Post-Snowden and hosted June 3rd, the panel will cover some of the biggest security risks to technology enterprises today, and answer the following questions:

  • Are there threats or best practices that entrepreneurs still don't know enough about?
  • To what extent could a cyber disaster harm the economy?
  • Is a strong cybersecurity stance compatible with rapid growth?
  • When it comes to protecting customer privacy, has our own government become an adversary?
  • What's the right balance of government regulation and industry self-regulation in these areas?

In addition to Jon, the other panelists include:

  • Brian White, Principal at The Chertoff Group, a security consulting firm based out of the U.S. and London.
  • Raj Shah, Senior Director of Cybersecurity at Palo Alto Networks, a security services firm offering firewalls and centralized security management platform for enterprises.

The panel will be moderated by Bob Ackerman, Managing Director at San Francisco-based Allegis Capital, a firm that invests heavily in cybersecurity. Bob has more than fifteen years of general management, venture capital and strategic mergers and acquisition advisory experience, working for a variety of start-up tech companies.
