FORT WORTH, Texas—FBI Section Chief Philip Celestini will be the featured speaker for the ESX Public Safety Luncheon on June 9, ESX organizers announced today.

A veteran special agent of the FBI, Celestini is the Senior Executive FBI Representative to the National Security Agency and U.S. Cyber Command. 

In 2013, he was recognized with the FBI’s “Top 12 Knowledge Award” for his pioneering application of technology platforms to improve on-demand information-sharing in complex, multi-jurisdiction cases.

Celestini will address many topics on cybersecurity across the full spectrum of security threats, including Internet of Things vulnerability, intellectual property and personally identifiable information theft, foreign intelligence services, terrorism, and transnational organized crime, with specifics on how those threats exploit cyberspace to attack our nation and its interests.

This ESX Main Stage event, to be held in the Fort Worth Convention Center, will focus on how public safety professionals are providing critical solutions that help to keep us safer on a 24/7 basis. 

“We are thrilled that Mr. Celestini will be presenting at ESX 2016,” George De Marco, ESX Chairman, said in a prepared statement. “What better way to underscore the importance of public safety and highlight the evolving technologies, appropriate policies, and vital partnerships needed to deliver public safety and national security every day,” he added.

The public safety luncheon will also honor deserving individuals from industry programs including ESA’s Youth Scholarship Award, the Security Industry Alarm Coalition’s (SIAC) Police Dispatch Quality (PDQ) Award and the William N. Moody Award, and CSAA’s Public Sector Award.

ESX will take place June 8 to 10 at the Fort Worth Convention Center here.
