CAMS Cybersecurity Innovation Symposium

What We’ll Talk About

What innovations in technology, culture and policy will we need to be secure in five years?








The first Annual CAMS Cybersecurity Innovation Symposium (CCIS) was a big success!

We are please to announce that May 11, 2023 is the date of the next CCIS!


(and watch this page for the registration information) 


It’s a pretty sure bet that the cybersecurity innovations that protect us in today will not be sufficient to keep us secure in 5 years from now.  We must start now to create our secure future.

This conference brings together thought leaders, policy makers, researchers, C-level executives, venture capital, start up leaders, and students to share our visions of what cybersecurity will look like in 5 years, and to discuss what technology, policy, and organizational innovations we need to get us there. 

In 2022, participants came from all over the MIT Campus (and other universities)  plus from the US government, the CAMS Consortium, the VC community and more to discuss these important questions.  There is no better place than the MIT Sloan School of Management to discuss the latest thinking in cybersecurity leadership and management.

June 2, 2022 was the date of our inaugural event.  Registrations exceeded expectations, and there was a waitlist for participants.  The response from attendees was overwhelmingly positive and the request was made for a follow up symposium in 2023.  We heard you. Please plan on joining us in May, 2023 to continuing exploring these, and additional questions. We cannot get to the future we envision if we don’t start now.
