ST. LOUIS (June 18, 2018) – BraveIT organizers today announced the addition of three cybersecurity professionals to the Sept. 13 conference lineup in Chicago. Suzanne Magee, Jennifer Rathburn, and Michael Estevez will contribute their extensive experience and insights to a session titled, “Been Hacked? Now What? Lessons in Recovery.” During the session, they’ll review recommendations for organizations that, despite best efforts, are faced with a security system breach.
Suzanne Magee is co-founder and Chief Evangelist Officer of Bandura Systems, which pioneered the Threat Intelligence Gateway, in part with the U.S. Department of Defense. Magee has received numerous honors, including a Women Entrepreneur Award 2009; National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) Public Policy Advocate of the Year Award; Distinguished Woman Business Owner, and others.

She is one of the founders of the Midwest Cyber Security Alliance and has a deep understanding of the complex risk, operational, and legal issues that companies must address to maintain the confidentiality of, access to, and integrity of their data.
A New York-based managing director in Burson Cohn & Wolfe’s Public Affairs & Crisis practice, Michael Estevez advises clients on crisis and litigation communications, issues management and cybersecurity. His experience includes engagements on behalf of corporations, a U.S. defense contractor, an Ivy League university and an assortment of government entities. He has advised organizations on all matters related to cybersecurity crisis communications, including media relations, employee communications, customer and stakeholder engagement and public affairs.
In addition to the session on post-breach recovery, BraveIT will offer a diverse, fast-moving array of other workshops, panels, interviews, and peer-to-peer sessions, covering business continuity and disaster recovery, artificial intelligence, cloud applications across verticals, the implications of edge deployments on data center design and operation, cryptocurrencies, and more.
