This week Sqrrl hosted over 30 Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) and senior security executives (plus a few friends from the Cyber Division at the New York City FBI Field Office) for an evening of networking at a restaurant in downtown New York City.
Unlike most CISO events, this event had a very special guest speaker: Sam Esmail, the creator, executive producer, lead writer, and director of the award winning new TV show Mr. Robot. Season 1 of Mr. Robot premiered last year and has already garnered Best TV Drama awards from the Golden Globes and Critics' Choice (among others).

Sam covered a number of topics, including his inspiration for the show, how he has made it so realistic and reflective of hacker culture, and how Mr. Robot will hopefully change the world. If you are interested in getting involved with future Sqrrl events, please sign up below.
