About the Conference

For this third, enhanced running of Spies, Lies & Nukes join Valerie Plame and some of her legendary, highly decorated, and experienced CIA colleagues as they pull back the curtain on the real life “wilderness of mirrors” that is international espionage.

Hear from and engage with the best of CIA’s spies to better understand today’s world:  from emergent threats, to never-before-told spy operations, black market nuclear scams, how to recruit a spy, the growth of domestic terrorism, how social media is used in espionage, and keeping your employees and your company safe from foreign spies.
