Fresh from the GOP convention last night, the Former New York Mayor who was mayor during the tragic 9/11 events, Rudy Giuliani appeared today at the BlackBerry Security Summit, joining BlackBerry CEO John Chen to discuss the state of security in an increasingly Mobile-Driven World.
Giuliani recalled his experience during 9/11 and the role BlackBerry played to keep people connected in a time of crisis, saving lives and enabling him to restore command centers to manage the crisis. He reinforced the need to create solutions that combat the growing number of cyber threats emerging around the world, and how these threats are impacting commercial and national security globally.
I can’t think of anyone better positioned to appreciate the value of BlackBerry and AtHoc in a crisis. The fact that he has given BlackBerry this recognition speaks volumes.
