Advancing Innovation Through Collaboration
It is all about relationships... We fervently believe that innovation is accelerated when the security community - composed of buyers, builders, researchers and investors - collaborate together on addressing global cyber security threats. Purposely intimate, always stimulating, and first-class in every respect, SINET events are trust based and provide a unique opportunity for security community participants to make valuable connections while gaining new perspectives on critical security issues.
The IT Security Entrepreneur Forum (ITSEF) connects the Federal Government to Silicon Valley. It is a place where security entrepreneurs can interface directly with top government agency and industry officials in a comfortable setting for informal conversations. Where a dialogue can begin that lead towards the development of trust based relationships and the creation of win - win situations that are mutually beneficial. Our objective is to advance innovation through collaboration models.
The SINET Showcase held in Washington DC, is designed to identify and present the most innovative security companies that are addressing industry and government needs and requirements. Our audience consists of investors, researchers and industry and government buyers. The SINET Showcase advisory committee consists of fifty subject matter experts from industry, government, investment banking, academia, science, and venture capital. The committee will select twenty companies from a field of more than 150 applicants so they may present their technology among some of the largest buyers in the world.
SINET Workshops provide security entrepreneurs with critical knowledge from people who matter. Held in conjunction with both the ITSEF and SINET Showcase, each workshop offers expert insight from industry and government officials, venture capitalists, leading researchers, and successful entrepreneurs. There is no comparable opportunity to learn how to navigate the Federal sector and to get the financing and professional services needed to win.
The Security Innovation Network™ (SINET) was created with seed funding from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and the Department of Homeland Security Science & Technology Directorate. SINET's "IT Security Entrepreneurs' Forum" hosted at Stanford University and the SINET Showcase in Washington DC, have become one of the most powerful 'must attend' conduits for bringing together security experts, researchers, government leaders, technology innovators, investment bankers and venture capitalist to address the intractable and urgent issues surrounding cyber security.
SINET has become a catalyst, connecting individuals and organizations involved with the technical, strategic, legal, economic, and policy aspects of cyber crime. It has built a community of thought leaders in positions of influence who are seeking to collaborate as a single strategic ecosystem to form a unified approach to cyber security.
