Why join an Innovation Shipyard Alliance Forum?

Collaboration of CyberSecurity and Innovative Technology

CISOs/CSOs/CROs/CPOs  and other expert cyber professionals

Are you looking for a way of sharing what you “really think” when looking at a new “innovative” technology, or sharing the one thing that would make you ’turn your chair’.  Not to be critical, but to be constructive, because you really think there is new innovative technology here and you can provide your knowledge to make it sail faster, fly higher, and take technology to the next level securely.

Innovation Technology Companies and Entrepreneurs (Innovative Showcasers)

Educate yourself on what companies are really looking for to embrace new technology. Find out what they find interesting about your innovative technology. What changes they see in their environments. Is your message working? Where you are on the mark and where you might want to draw into your next ship.


You are the future. Join us. As a volunteer you can see and hear what young innovative technologies are doing. Meet potential employers or internship opportunities. Find a mentor. Submit for a scholarship. We might be hearing from you in the near future!


Hear from our Innovative Showcasers and our Captains!  Each forum is a new opportunity to hear about some innovative technology companies in our shipyard where the designers, potential buyers, nextgen developers and buyers are openly talking.

C-levels, Emeritus, & Technologists (Captains)

Become the S.C.O.R.E. for ensuring CyberSecurity in Innovative Technology. Maybe you don’t want to work 8-20 hours a day at the same job everyday. You are ‘retired’ from that, but want to still stay involved with cyber. This is your new networking community.
