MACH37 created the Security Leaders Dinner Series (SLD) in 2013 as a way to engage the local cybersecurity ecosystem around the new cybersecurity startups in the MACH37 program. These weekly Thursday night events have grown from 20 people each week to now over 70 each week with several of the evenings topping out at over 150 attendees. Notable security business leaders, security professionals, policy leaders, CEOs, CTOs, senior technology strategists, VCs and angel investors from around the country routinely take the stage at MACH37 to discuss, in a non-attribution environment, issues of the day, experiences and directions of the industry.

The events are no cost to attend and start with an open networking session including M37 startups at 5:30 followed by a buffet dinner or reception – heavy hors d'oeuvres. The guest security leader usually will take the stage at 6:30 PM followed by open Q&A at 7:30 PM closing out the evening with open networking at 8:00PM.

The Spring 2016 program will include: Mark Ryland, Chief Architect, World Wide Public Sector Team, Amazon Web Services (March 31); Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) US Senate Intelligence Committee (April 7); Niloo R. Howe, SVP, Chief Strategy Officer at RSA, The Security Division of EMC (April 14); and, Jack Huffard, COO / President Tenable Network Security (May 5).
