The Cipher Brief Launches New Public-Private Cyber Advisory Board


The Cipher Brief, a premiere source for global security news and analysis, is proud to announce the launch of its Cyber Advisory Board, a rotating board of cyber experts who come together to participate in an innovative forum for thought leadership and the exploration of community-based approaches to cyber threats.

The proliferation of current and emerging cyber threats creates incredible demand for high-level, trusted thinking and analysis and the Cipher Brief's Cyber Advisory Board leverages its deep network of experienced leaders and influencers to discuss, analyze and innovate solutions.

Cyber Advisory Board meetings will be expertly moderated by General Michael V. Hayden, (Ret.), former Director of both the National Security Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency and dozens of public and private sector experts will be invited to participate on a bi-monthly basis.

"It's critical that the public and private sectors find the right balance between privacy and information sharing when it comes to current and emerging threats," said Suzanne Kelly, Cipher Brief CEO & Publisher. "This is the place where those conversations happen."

"I have found the relaxed atmosphere, sharp minds and tough issues to be an unbeatable conversation," said General Hayden. "You don't just pick up new details, you get exposed to entirely new concepts."

Cyber Advisory Board meetings are open to journalists on an invitation basis and Cipher Brief reporters write and publish non-attributed details of the discussions on Cyber Advisory Board members also lend their expertise via weekly columns, and Cipher Brief Analysts produce White Papers available to subscribers.
