This Thursday, July 23, BlackBerry will be hosting its Security Summit in NYC. In attendance will be BlackBerry CEO John Chen, COO Marty Beard, VP of Product Management Tim Choi, VP of Corporate Strategy Jeff Holleran, as well as other BlackBerry personnel. Like last year’s BlackBerry Security Summit, the event will be highly focused on security threats in mobile, and BlackBerry’s role in preventing this threats at the enterprise and government levels.

While it’s not specifically an event geared towards product announcements, it wouldn’t be totally farfetched to see John Chen and co. drop some news or hint at some upcoming devices or software. As a reminder, at last year’s Security Summit, BlackBerry announced the acquisition of Secusmart, told us BBM for Android and iOS would get a serious makeover, and introduced the BlackBerry Guardian.

We will be on hand in New York City starting at 9am EDT with all the coverage of the BlackBerry Security Summit. If you would like to watch the event keynote, BlackBerry will be streaming it live here. What are you hoping to see announced or talked about at the BlackBerry Security Summit?
