Rudy Giuliani Makes an Appearance at the BlackBerry Security Summit

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.




I am a long time BlackBerry user and fan. Beginning with the 7520, I have recognized the value of subtle productivity enhancements in BlackBerry devices for business communication and have never since strayed. Even when the iPhone took the market by storm, I was unimpressed, because it did nothing to help my business needs. Currently enjoying my one handed dream phone, the Classic! BB10 with a toolbelt! Today I contribute to UTB whenever I feel that I can help enlighten someone on the benefits of using BlackBerry over any other platform.
