NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- ********************************************************************
SecuritySolutionsWatch.com: Thank you for joining us today, Lindsey and Andrew, and congratulations on the growth and traction that you have achieved with Cyber Investing Summit (https://cyberinvestingsummit.com) . Before discussing CIS in greater detail, please tell us about your background and may we have a brief history of CIS?

Andrew Chanin: I realized there was a great deal of interest about investing in the cybersecurity industry, and while there are many terrific product focused cybersecurity conferences, there are no events focused on the financial opportunities and strategies in the cybersecurity industry.

Lindsey Lachman: Andrew and I are cousins, and our company is entirely family run. We both have experience in the ETF industry, and our paths have always seemed to overlap. So, when Andrew approached me with the opportunity to help launch this innovative new conference, there was no way I could say no.

Andrew and I co-founded our conference business, Specialty Investing Series, in 2015. We hosted the First Annual Cyber Investing Summit at the New York Stock Exchange in May 2016. The Summit is now in its fourth year, and I am lucky enough to work with my family every day doing a job that I love.

SecuritySolutionsWatch.com: Care to summarize for our readers the main benefits of attending/sponsoring Cyber Investing Summit (https://cyberinvestingsummit.com) ?

Lindsey Lachman: The Cyber Investing Summit is unique as it is the only cybersecurity conference focused primarily on the financial side of the industry. Our goal is to provide thought-provoking panels and networking opportunities for everyone in the sector from publicly traded firms, financial analysts and qualified investors to privately held companies, startups and venture capitalists.

Attendees and sponsors have the chance to create valuable relationships with key influencers in both the cybersecurity and the financial sectors. We also have great strategic partnerships with top media outlets, such as
SecuritySolutionsWatch.com, and always try to facilitate introductions between our sponsors and the press. Several companies have even closed rounds of funding after taking part as sponsors at past Summits.

SecuritySolutionsWatch.com: The Agenda (https://cyberinvestingsummit.com/#agenda) and speakers presented by CIS (https://cyberinvestingsummit.com/#speakers) are truly impressive. What were some of the highlights at this years’ CIS?

Lindsey Lachman: We were honored to have such a terrific group of leading influencers and experts in the cybersecurity and financial sectors participate at this year’s Summit. There were so many highlights, it’s difficult to narrow it down!

Former FireEye & McAfee CEO and current Momentum Cyber Chairman David DeWalt gave a fascinating keynote address regarding the evolution of the cyber world, growth of the market, and investment opportunities in the space.

We were also excited to have Cybersecurity Ventures exclusively reveal their annual Cybersecurity 500 List (https://cybersecurityventures.com/cybersecurity-500-list/) of the most innovative cybersecurity companies live at the Summit.

Some of the most well recognized cybersecurity venture capitalists shared great advice for startups looking to secure funding and grow their companies. Top financial analysts provided a deeper look into the performance and trends in the cybersecurity equity market.

SecuritySolutionsWatch.com: For those who missed it, are the CIS presentations and sessions online?

Lindsey Lachman: Yes, the presentation videos are available on the Cyber Investing Summit YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCi2WTHuC8h2nIba2jyA2Jg/videos) page.

SecuritySolutionsWatch.com: We are all familiar, unfortunately, with the headlines regarding breaches at Equifax, Uber and Orbitz and the recent ransomware attack on the city of Atlanta (https://www.cnn.com/2018/03/27/us/atlanta-ransomware-computers/index.html) . What is your perspective…are things getting better or getting worse?

Lindsey Lachman: As we have seen, breaches are not limited to one sector. They affect every industry from large financial institutions to hospitals, governments to automobiles, hotels to electric grids, etc. Cyber attacks have increased in frequency and sophistication and are showing no signs of slowing down. While these major breaches are never good news, they have helped raise awareness regarding the need to implement additional cybersecurity measures.

Andrew Chanin: I completely agree with Lindsey here. The encouraging thing is that these threats are no longer being ignored and some of the best minds in the world are working to prevent them. That being said, our digital and physical worlds are becoming ever-more interconnected. The more vulnerabilities that exist, the more opportunities arise to prevent them. We want to make sure the people with security solutions find the capital they need to make our world a safer place. The Cyber Investing Summit is a perfect venue for these conversations and collaboration.

SecuritySolutionsWatch.com: What’s next for Cyber Investing Summit (https://cyberinvestingsummit.com) ?

Lindsey Lachman: We are excited to announce that the 4th Annual Cyber Investing Summit, our flagship event, will be held Thursday, May 16th, 2019 in New York City.

We will also continue to build upon the Cyber Investing Summit brand, and plan to bring the conference to new locations worldwide.
