Today’s cybersecurity challenges require a collective defense. Yet too often we keep our issues confidential and attempt to solve them ourselves. This gives a cyber adversary the upper hand.
Organizations like educational institutions, non-profits and local governments often lack dedicated resources for their cyber defense systems, and easy solutions are hard to come by. Through community discussion, networking and resource sharing, this event aims to address the shortfalls and provide a path toward improving our collective cybersecurity defense.
Our speakers will discuss the challenges facing organizations, share solutions they’ve used to shrink the problem, and offer advice that any community can take to improve their cybersecurity posture.
Virtual again in 2022, this event is open to the public.
We are delighted that this year’s keynote address will be given by Amy Geiger, the North American Cyber Security Lead at Accenture:
