We’re looking forward to our Transformational CISO Assembly with Keynote Speaker Ben Rhodes this November, and leading up to the event, we recommend that you make Rhodes’ The World as It Is: A Memoir of the Obama White House the top of your summer reading list.
Rhodes’ inside-the-bubble account gives a glimpse into the Obama Administration like never before, with George Packer of The New Yorker claiming it to be “The closest view of Obama we’re likely to get until he publishes his own memoir.” His memoir details behind-the-scenes insight on some of the most gripping moments during the Obama Administration- waiting out the bin Laden raid in the Situation Room, responding to the Arab Spring, reaching a nuclear agreement with Iran, leading secret negotiations with the Cuban government to normalize relations, and confronting the resurgence of nationalism and nativism that culminated in the election of Donald Trump. Rhodes’ novelistic style gives clarity and depth to the events we lived through, and much like the speeches he’s written, captivates the audience from the start.

We are excited to hear Ben Rhodes’ wealth of knowledge in his keynote presentation this November!

Transformational CISO Assembly
The Millennium Alliance is thrilled to present our bi-annual Transformational CISO Assembly, taking place in Nashville, TN.
With the instances of cyber attacks increasing, businesses of all sizes are working tirelessly to secure their networks, devices, and data. Fortune 500 organizations are especially vulnerable as they have big data pools and thousands of people who need access. CISOs need to plan for worst-case scenarios, stay ahead of the latest IT Security transformation technology, and maintain their company’s information assets, all without losing sight of the corporate culture.
