“The Innovation Summit bridges cultural and technology gaps by connecting our nation’s most powerful epicenters; Wall Street, Silicon Valley and the Washington D.C. Beltway,” said Robert D. Rodriguez, Chairman & Founder of SINET. “Admiral Rogers presence sends a compelling message to the attendees, in particular the Cybersecurity entrepreneurs that what they are building is not only important to him but to our national security and economic interests. It also shows his support of collaboration models that are designed to advance innovation and new approaches to the mounting challenge we face in this space.”

During Admiral Rogers’ recent testimony to the U.S. Senate, he addressed the key areas on which NSA will focus: trust; civil liberties; privacy; and transparency. In addition, he stressed the importance of embracing and leading change; collaborative partnerships with our trusted allies, academia and private industry; and engaging and better informing the American people. He stated that ultimately it is about assessing risks and, in doing so, not forgetting the real and growing danger to our Nation.
