Now in its fourth year, the Cyber Investing Summit is an all-day conference focused on investing in the cybersecurity industry, which is predicted to exceed $1 trillion in cumulative spending on products and services over the next five years from 2017 to 2021, according to Cybersecurity Ventures’s quarterly Cybersecurity Market Report.

The Summit differs from traditional product centered conferences by highlighting the financial side of the cybersecurity sector. Panels explore the investment opportunities, trends, and strategies available in this high growth industry.

The Summit provides attendees with a unique opportunity to increase brand awareness and network with leading investors and key influencers in the financial and cybersecurity industries.

Attendees include Chief Information Security Officers, cybersecurity professionals, financial analysts, government experts, institutional and retail investors, private equity managers, privately held companies, publicly traded firms, startups, venture capitalists, and more.

Videos from the 3rd Annual Cyber Investing Summit can be found here.
