Call for Presentations

Deadline to submit a proposal ends this week.

Organizations spend a considerable amount of resources protecting themselves from cyber attacks. Yet most have no idea if they’re investing enough or making the best use of their resources.

Borderless Cyber USA 2018 will bring together cybersecurity stakeholders from industry, government, the military, and academia for a comprehensive exploration of emerging threats, best practices, research, supporting tools, and today's hottest cybersecurity trends.

We invite you to join the conversation. If you have ideas and experiences which you feel would be helpful to people who are responsible for setting their organization’s cyber strategy, please submit an abstract. Presentations should be aimed at directors of threat intelligence, incident response, risk and audit. Stories of how your organization integrated threat intelligence to tangibly improve your security, stories of failed efforts and lessons learned, ideas for fresh approaches, new research findings, as well as analyses of policy trends are all welcome.

Of interest are topics that include:

  • How to use cyber threat intelligence data
  • Policy issues impacting the sharing and usage of sharing cybersecurity data
  • Obstacles leading to the success or failure of an initiative
  • Tools for sharing and using cyber threat intelligence

  • Evaluation and implementation of new sharing models — including their economic impact and benefits
  • Recommendations on how to validate and qualify the information shared — highlighting techniques for dealing with large amounts of cyber threat intelligence
  • Success and failure stories integrating a cybersecurity strategy into an organization
  • Legal and technical challenges when handling and sharing data under new legislations such as GDPR


We will accept presentations 30 minutes in length, including Q&A. Panel discussions can be 60 minutes in length.

Marketing presentations will not be accepted.
