Atlanta will play home to hundreds of global cybersecurity innovators in early October. Atlanta Cyber Week, a public-private collaboration led by law firm Baker Donelson and the Metro Atlanta Chamber, will take place October 2 – 6, in an effort to showcase the region’s burgeoning cybersecurity ecosystem.
Twelve companies, in particular, will have a chance to pitch during Baker Donelson’s Cybercon 2017, an annual conference focused on the evolving issues affecting cybersecurity and the flagship event of Atlanta Cyber Week. The firm has invited growth-stage cyber leaders from Canada, Ireland, Israel, the United Kingdom and the United States to participate in a product pitch session during the event.
The 12 companies will present their products directly to CISOs and other security professionals from southeastern U.S. companies and governments. These presenting companies will also gain access to networking and mentorship opportunities following the pitch session.
“We once again have an outstanding group of both domestic and foreign cybersecurity companies participating in the Cybercon pitch session,” said Justin Daniels, a Baker Donelson shareholder, who is a co-chair of the Baker Donelson Cybersecurity Accelerator and is leading Atlanta Cyber Week.
“We look forward to the opportunity to connect these companies with leading professionals in the cybersecurity industry and to highlight Atlanta’s position as a global cybersecurity capital.”
The 12 companies selected to present during the pitch session are:
- Apptega (U.S.): Cybersecurity automation and intelligence
- Beauceron (Canada): Measure & monitor cyber risk
