Shawn Henry

CSO & President of CrowdStrike Services

Sunday (10/24) 8:00 – 9:00 AM

President of CrowdStrike Services and former FBI executive Shawn Henry will discuss the state of the cyber threat landscape and the importance of viewing cybersecurity as an enterprise business risk. He will address topics including: supply chain threats and ransomware; adversaries and their motivations with focus on nation-state actors; examples of recent high-profile attacks and real-world incidents; getting your leadership on board with understanding their cyber risk; rise in Internet of Things devices and what that means for security; and the convergence of IT and OT, particularly during the global pandemic.

Henry leads a world-class team of cybersecurity professionals in investigating and mitigating targeted attacks on corporate and government networks globally. Under his leadership, CrowdStrike engages in significant proactive and incident response operations across every major commercial sector and critical infrastructure, protecting organizations' and governments' sensitive data and networks around the world. Henry's work includes educating boards of directors and executives of key companies on critical proactive security measures, governance, and corporate readiness in the event of a breach. He also oversees all security aspects of global CrowdStrike facilities, personnel, executive protection, and corporate events.

Henry's legendary commitment to "One team. One Fight." resonates throughout the entire organization, unifying CrowdStrike's rapidly growing and geographically dispersed workforce. He joined CrowdStrike in 2012 after retiring from the FBI, where he oversaw half of the FBI's investigative operations, including all FBI criminal and cyber investigations worldwide, international operations, and the FBI's critical incident response to major investigations and disasters. He also oversaw computer crime investigations spanning the globe and received the Presidential Rank Award for Meritorious Executive for his leadership in enhancing the FBI's cyber capabilities. Henry lectures at leading universities and is a faculty member at the National Association of Corporate Directors. He serves as a keynote speaker at major cyber security conferences around the world and is regularly interviewed on cyber security issues by major broadcast, cable, online, and print media.
