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! 

About Ben Rhodes:

Ben Rhodes is the author of the New York Times bestseller The World As It Is; a contributor for NBC News, MSNBC and Crooked Media; the co-chair of National Security Action; and an advisor to former President Barack Obama. From 2009-2017, Rhodes served as a Deputy National Security Advisor to President Obama. In that capacity, he participated in nearly all of President Obama’s key decisions, and oversaw the President’s national security communications, speechwriting, public diplomacy and global engagement programming. He also led the secret negotiations with the Cuban government which resulted in the effort to normalize relations between the United States and Cuba, and supported the negotiations to conclude the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) with Iran. Prior to joining the Administration, he was a Senior Speechwriter and foreign policy advisor to the Obama campaign. From 2002-2007, he worked for former Congressman Lee Hamilton, supporting his work on the 9/11 Commission and Iraq Study Group. A native New Yorker, Mr. Rhodes has a B.A. from Rice University and an M.F.A from New York University. 

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.
