Just Announced: Cyber Intelligence Panel at mWISE 

How is cyber intelligence being transformed by major geopolitical events and new technical demands? What does the increasing intensity of both of these factors mean for practitioners?

Organizers of the mWISE conference from Mandiant have announced a keynote panel addressing these questions, with a focus on both the challenges and the opportunities of the current times. 

Moderated by Sean Lyngaas of CNN.com, the Cyber Intelligence in a Rapidly Changing World panel includes: 

  • Jackie Burns Koven of Chainalysis

  • John Hultquist of Mandiant, now part of Google Cloud

  • Selena Larson of Proofpoint

  • Maddie Stone of the Google Threat Analysis Group

A Different Kind of Conference

mWISE is unique among security conferences in its community-focused, highly collaborative agenda. An open call for speakers resulted in hundreds of submissions. From there, an independent panel of frontline practitioners selected only the most relevant, compelling, and solutions-focused topics.

The idea is to bring the industry’s best minds together in a single gathering, using the power of collective intelligence to unlock new solutions. 

Torsten George is a Cybersecurity Evangelist at Absolute Software and member of the 2023 mWISE Independent Program Committee.

“I’m a big believer that there’s no single tool or security concept that will have a greater impact on the overall cyber landscape than that of collaboration,” he says. “And that’s exactly what the mWISE conference is all about.”

What does he think of the 2023 lineup? “This year’s session catalog is even more appealing than last year,” he says. “It delivers thought-provoking discussions and content from the best minds in the security industry.”
