Our Story

Cybersecurity for all Business Executives

The Cyber Crisis Prevention and Management Workshop is a true executive-level event, designed specifically to bring together top business leaders across multiple disciplines (legal, HR, IT, PR/marketing, CEO, and board members) so that all can collaborate and learn what it takes to be truly prepared for a potential cyber crisis.

While other conferences are segmented in their audience participation, this event is the one that brings multiple business executives together as they seek to be fully prepared for a major cybersecurity incident.

Meet the Team

The Cyber Education Foundation is a non-profit organization that brings together the top business executives who have the most incredible cybersecurity-related stories to tell.

Whether it’s a business that has had to shut down due to government regulation/sanctions, the lawyers who have or are defending them, or any of the public relations and marketing leaders who have experienced the dilemma of getting the right message out, their experience is now in need of a platform to share. And the Foundation is that platform.

We lead not where others have failed. We lead where we have failed, and now seek to show you what really lurks in the shadows so that you can win.

The Cyber Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation
