Cyber LEadership Forum, april 7-8, 2018


Who Should Attend?

The Yale Cyber Leadership Forum is aimed at leaders who have faced the challenge of bridging the divide between law, technology, and business in cybersecurity.  We are seeking a diverse set of thought leaders—practitioners from leading law firms, cybersecurity technology experts, policy experts, and academics working at the cutting edge of cybersecurity—who are eager to share their experiences, learn more about the array of cyber threats, gather new strategies for overcoming cybersecurity challenges, and contribute to discussions of the best way to tackle the challenges ahead. Proficiency in spoken and written English is essential for participation in the Forum.


The regular tuition fee is $2,995. It includes program materials, 2 lunches, 1 dinner, all-day refreshments, and transportation to and from the hotel. To secure your space in the Forum, you must make a $500 deposit no later than March 16th. Final tuition payment is due no later than March 30th

Housing is not included in the course fee; however, a special hotel rate (which includes breakfast) will be provided for participants at a local hotel. Payment is accepted by company check, bank wire transfer, or credit card (American Express, MasterCard, and Visa).

You can book your hotel by following this link


Early Bird: If you apply and pay in full by March 9th, the early bird discount of $1,995 will automatically be applied to your application.

Government and non-profit employees always qualify for a reduced tuition of $1,995. 

Yale University alumni qualify for 15% off full tuition. The alumni tuition rate is $2,545. Discounts may not be combined. For instance, Yale University alumni who are government or non-profit employees qualify for the reduced tuition rate of $1,995 without further discount. 


Full, and partial-tuition scholarships will be awarded, depending on the level of interest, need, and merit of the scholarship applicant pool. (Travel and lodging are not included.) To be considered, include a short statement (no more than one page) of financial need explaining why you would benefit from being awarded a scholarship, along with your completed application.
Scholarship applications are due by March 20, 2018.
