2012 Holiday Gift Baskets

This Important Event Offers Free Registration or Hotel Included for Qualified Registrants

Sequestration and budget cuts are starting to have a negative effect on the Cyber Security industry as even the DOD cancelled its mid-April annual event in Maryland. Losing the Cyber wars is not an option, so it is time for the private sector to step up (and why wouldn't they when most analysts believe the Cyber sector will outperform anything else), and hence, in an effort to promote & support this vital cause, SSBC offers the following registration packages to its 2013 Investing in Cyber Technologies Program.

Cyber security firms looking to raise capital may register for Free once they have reserved 2 nights at the Willard for the nights of May 28 and May 29. Special conference rates apply of $299 plus tax per night. Please mention you are attending the Cyber Defense in America conference
when contacting the hotel directly.

Due to Sequestration, Government employees may attend the conference Free of Charge - please register at cyberarmsrace.com.

Investors (private equity, venture capital, hedge fund firms) may register for $995 and included is a 2 night stay for the conference at The Willard Hotel. Once registered at cyberarmsrace.com we will book your
hotel room and forward your confirmation.


A unique conference that will bring together some of the world's leading private sector and government experts on Cyber Arms and Security, along with Private Equity, Venture Capital, and Hedge Fund Managers, all focused on investing in the space.

• Maximizing Returns on Current Investments in Companies That Defend America
• Investing in the Development & Deployment of Energy Security Technologies
• Investing in the Future of the Cyber Security Arms Race

Over two days, IDA 2013 provides a platform for Investment Professionals, Corporate C-Suite Executives, and Senior Government and Military Officials to learn from and network with key industry influencers.
