Mitnick is now a trusted security consultant to the Fortune 500 and to governments worldwide. His critically acclaimed training programs help counteract social engineering and improve security effectiveness far and wide.

Tickets for the keynote are $40, with lunch included. Reserve your seat today.

The event comes after the recent opening of the Regent University Cyber Range, a state-of-the-art academic center and training facility dedicated to equipping the next generation of cybersecurity professionals in industry, government, military and academia.

As one of only a few stand-alone cyber range facilities at a university, and perhaps the only one in the nation at a private university, the Regent Cyber Range offers hands-on training programs where students acquire the highest level of skills needed for careers in cybersecurity.

Regent’s Cyber Range is also a leading-edge training hub for enterprises, consultancies, government and military organizations, offering several certificate programs at that level.

The Cybersecurity Summit is presented by The Darwin Group, LLC. Panel discussions are sponsored by Aruba: A Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company, and GRIMM.
