New York’s Assistant Director in Charge George Venizelos said, “The FBI New York Office is proud to be a co-host of the fourth annual International Conference on Cyber Security with Fordham University. The FBI has been at the forefront of the growing threat of cyber security, having established the first cyber division in the FBI, right here in New York. This conference is another example of our leadership in the cyber arena—this is the only conference where the FBI collaborates with a university on global solutions to confront cyber crime. This year’s conference will be a success not only because of the prolific speakers scheduled but also because it builds relationships between government, private sector, and academia. We’d like to thank Fordham University for their partnership and important role in this conference.”
At check in, all journalists will be required to submit a valid government ID and proof of employment/assignment (ID or letter) from their respective outlets. Holders of NYPD press credentials should also submit those. All photographic, audio, and video equipment will be checked by security before admission to the venue (journalists should arrive 15 minutes in advance of the session(s) they want to attend to allow for checks).
Media are welcome at all public programming, but receptions, luncheons, and networking events are only open to program participants. Photography, audio, and video recording are not allowed outside the main venue, McNally Amphitheatre. ICCS-issued press passes must be visible at all times while you are at the conference.
