Cyber Security Summit

Andrew Borene Appointed to Chair 2015 Cyber Security Summit

The 2014 Cyber Security Summit in Minneapolis, Minn., is scheduled for Oct. 21-22, but preparations have already begun for the 2015 event, starting with the announcement of Andrew Borene as Summit chair.

Minneapolis, MN – August 28 – The 2014 Cyber Security Summit is less than two months away and will contain more actionable takeaways for attendees than ever before. (View this year’s agenda here.) However, with cyber threats showing no signs of slowing down, plans are already well underway for the 2015 Summit, beginning with today’s announcement of the 2015 Summit Chair: Andrew Borene.

“I am honored to have been asked to help communicate the global leadership of cyber security solutions, policy and providers from within America’s heartland,” Borene said. “Addressing the increasingly real challenges for our companies, governments and individual privacy require strong public-private partnerships for cooperation and communication. Because Minnesota has more Fortune 500 companies per capita than any other state, we are uniquely situated to share the best practices and lessons learned among our sponsors, board members and attendees.”

Mr. Borene is a Counselor with the international law firm of Steptoe & Johnson LLP in Washington, D.C., where he coordinates representation of companies and individuals in general business and legal matters, including investigations, due diligence, mergers and acquisitions, national security, cybersecurity, privacy and data security. He also helps facilitate strategic relationships between public, private, and academic partners.

“Andrew Borene is an expert on national security issues, and I’m delighted to hear he’ll be returning to his roots in Minnesota to lead the 2015 Cyber Security Summit,” Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie said. “This is an extremely important topic everywhere, but Minnesota in particular has taken a lead role in this area because of the many global companies located in the state. These companies face this stuff on a daily basis, and the Summit provides a chance for them, along with government and security professionals, to collaborate on ways to address the growing problem.”

Mr. Borene currently serves on the Advisory Board for the Cyber Security Summit, is a Truman National Security Project Defense Council Member and is on the Veterans Council of the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition. Borene played the role of the president during a simulated cyberattack response as part of the Truman Security Project’s annual conference in May. The exercise was designed to explore the challenges of crafting a national policy response following a cyberattack.

As an Associate Deputy General Counsel at the United States Department of Defense, Mr. Borene represented the agency’s interests in classified court proceedings. He also served as a U.S. Marine intelligence officer in Iraq. He is the editor of American Bar Association legal reference books on human rights law, international humanitarian law and national security law. He has authored or co-authored articles on security, law and general business subjects. He also appears as a guest foreign affairs and security analyst for several international news networks. In addition, he serves on the Advisory Committee to the ABA’s Standing Committee on Law & National Security.

The Cyber Security Summit thanks Mr. Borene for heading up this important event. More information on the 2015 Summit will be available after this year’s gathering, Oct. 21-22 in Minneapolis. Click here to register for 2014.

London, UK – August 21 – The world police modernization and counter terrorism market is expected to see a CAGR of 2.61% during 2014-2024, with the increase in global spending on the relevant equipment set to be driven by internal security threats and critical infrastructure protection, amongst other factors.
