Keynote Presentation by Ken Barnhart: Moving Cybersecurity From Headlines to Executive Headspaces
Ken is the founder and principal consultant for Highground Cyber.

As a veteran of Desert Shield\Storm, Ken earned his Combat Action Ribbon serving with HQ Battalion, 2nd Marine Division. He has carried forward his passion for the mission of protecting others from the battlefield to the board room.

Ken has successfully built and sold multiple IT businesses with the belief that technology holds the power to educate, empower and protect. He also speaks on the topic of cybersecurity awareness in his role as an international Vistage speaker and cybersecurity champion; educating boards of directors, CEOs and small business owners on cybersecurity threats and the role and responsibility of business leadership.

The Marine credo “no man left behind” reverberates in Ken’s personal mission of security – to awaken, empower and preserve fellow CEOs in the small and mid-market ecosystem that are now on the front lines of this sinister new battlefield of cybersecurity. This subject of protecting our nation’s SMB ecosystem is rooted in his deep appreciation for business and the risk the owners and CEOs take to stake their reputations, retirements and financial assets to provide half of our nation’s payroll.
