Event description

About the Summit

In recent years, the conversation has increasingly looked at burnout and the unique factors which drive it in cyber teams. 

This Summit is the next step in the process. 

We will bring together up to 100 cyber leaders and practitioners to explore what a solution might look like. It will also provide an opportunity to share experiences and hear from experts in the field. 

The Summit is designed to inform, stimulate insights and explore a constructive way forward. 

CISA Director, Jen Easterly has been kind enough to provide us with a video endorsement of this event and Cybermindz‘ launch into the US. 


Summit Participants will:

  • witness a fireside chat between industry leader Tom Reilly and a Ukrainian cyber defender on recent experiences from the Russian conflict
  • find inspiration in the vision of the founders of Cybermindz and the iRest Institute
  • experience a demonstration of the iRest protocol directly from its developer, Dr Richard Miller 
  • encounter a panel discussion of CISOs sharing their challenges, insights and support strategies

About the Summit Host

Founded in 2022, is a purpose driven, not-for-profit dedicated to bringing, scalable, direct, peer-informed mental health support to embattled cyber teams.

We are born out of cyber. Our leaders have extensive careers  in both cybersecurity and military leadership.

We use an evidence-based protocol (Integrative Restoration or iRest) developed by Dr Richard Miller which has seen over 15 years application in the US Military. It is supported by over 25 independent studies. It has been approved for treating PTSD, anxiety, depression, insomnia and pain management in veterans and active duty personnel.

Cybermindz is bringing the iRest protocol into cybersecurity for the first time in the world. The improvements in personal resilience are measurable using a range of standard psychometric tools. Pilot programs in 2022 are already showing positive results.  

We are now expanding our delivery internationally using a network of 7000+ facilitators trained to deliver the iRest protocol worldwide, of whom over 4000 are US based. 

Our mission is to alleviate suffering in cyber teams, keeping them strong, committed, effective and healthy.
