Illumination Summits are designed to break with the paradigm of traditional cybersecurity events.

On January 15, 2009, US Airways Flight 1549 took off from LaGuardia international airport. Shortly afterwards, it ditched in the Hudson river with—amazingly—no lives lost. Jeff Skiles was in the cockpit that day, and at this year’s Illumination Summit we’ll get his insights into the preparation required for ensuring that when the unthinkable happens, it doesn’t result in disaster, but gets called a miracle instead. Here you’ll also hear perspectives from experts in the cybersecurity industry and gain insights about how to bring cybersecurity (safely) down to earth.
