    DMV's cybersecurity sector has shot up the national ranks, with a staggering $600M in cybersecurity investment in just the first half of 2023. It's not just a statistic, but a testament to the burgeoning potential and dedication of our local cyber community.

    That's why Virtru is teaming up with local tech, finance, and cybersecurity firms for a day of insightful panel discussions, connection, and celebration of the community's momentum at DMV Rising. On September 13, we're bringing together security leaders from across the DMV to talk cybersecurity, innovation, and Zero Trust at Virtru's new headquarters, The HUB, on Pennsylvania Ave.  


    DMV Rising is co-sponsored by several local power players, including Sonatype, Palo Alto Networks, GDIT, Flashpoint, Dragos, DataTribe, Brown Advisory, Morrison Foerster, and King & Spalding. It promises to be a stellar event, with meaningful discussions and opportunities to connect with cybersecurity leaders on the front lines of innovation and security strategy.

    Here's a preview of what we have in store for attendees:
