CTA Webinar – Looking Back While Moving Forward: CTA at 4

Founded in 2017 by six companies as the first information sharing organization focused on cybersecurity providers, CTA now has more than 30 members, robust automated sharing, well-developed human sharing, and a broad reach across industry. In the beginning, though, CTA was just an idea and it took commitment from key leaders to make it happen.

Join us as Michael Daniel, CTA President and CEO, talks with some of the leaders who made CTA possible: Ken Xie, CEO of Fortinet; Mark McLaughlin, then CEO at Palo Alto Networks; and Chris Young, then CEO at McAfee. We will discuss how the idea for CTA arose, what it took to transition from idea to reality, and where these leaders think organizations like CTA should head in the future.
