Robert Herjavec to Host Security Current Signature Event Security Shark Tank® in San Francisco
IT Entrepreneur and Herjavec Group Founder & CEO to Moderate Rapid-fire Q&A Between CISOs and Security Vendors During RSA Conference 2017
Security Current today announced that Robert Herjavec, dynamic IT entrepreneur, Founder and CEO of leading global MSSP Herjavec Group, will serve as the host and moderator for Security Current’s signature event, the Security Shark Tank. The event will take place February 14, 2017 in San Francisco during the week of RSA Conference 2017.
Security Shark Tank events give five innovative security solutions providers each 15-minutes to engage in a rapid-fire Q&A with a panel of Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs). The executive buyers evaluate the solutions based on innovation, ease of implementation and value to the enterprise.
Herjavec’s extensive experience in the field of information security, along with his wisdom and expertise in the world of startups, makes him an ideal host and moderator for this event, which is known for bringing together CISO buyers and interesting vendors in a lively exchange.
Security Shark Tank events provide CISOs with an opportunity to learn about new technologies while giving vendors invaluable feedback from these thought leaders. With the security solutions space growing exponentially, CISOs use these events to identify solutions that will help protect their enterprises.
“The Security Shark Tank has grown to become the premier forum for CISOs and industry leaders to learn about innovative technology. I look forward to the rapid-fire exchange with my peers, the participating vendors and host Robert Herjavec during one of the most anticipated events during the week of RSA,” said Hearst CISO David Hahn, a former moderator and participant.
