8:30-9:20am Opening Keynote Speaker

Cloudy with a Chance of Legal Action: Managing Cyber Risks in an Increasingly Outsourced World – Ronald Raether, Partner/Attorney, Troutman Sanders  

In modern company networks, the Cloud is everywhere and the ability to assess potential liability threats has never been more important. Companies increasingly engage outside vendors and third-party service providers to assist with key aspects of their operations including payment platforms, customer relations management, information technology, and data storage, to name a few. As Cloud security continues to find its footing in this ever-evolving space, businesses must learn how to outsource functions while effectively managing cyber risk through vendor due diligence, protective contractual provisions, and appropriate internal processes and training. Known and unknown disruptive technologies challenge even the best programs. In this session, we will identify some common hacks and threats. With this context, we will walk through a common scenario and discuss who a fact pattern would play out in litigation. Key takeaways will include (1) what is the legal landscape relating to the Cloud, (2) lessons learned from litigation experience, and (3) what steps should be taken as to governance and compliance to mitigate future of Cloud risks.

What do you our Innovation Showcasers see companies struggling with and how do you fill that gap? What do CISOs, CIOs need to do to get support for new security technology? Why has your ship been able to take off like Elan Musk’s Tesla with RocketMan on board? Why should they get on board? Are you faster? More efficient? Better technology? C-levels, it’s your turn to ask the hard questions to the Showcasers on the panel

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.
