National cyber security experts and technology business leaders will gather Oct. 9 and 10 at the Minneapolis Convention Center for the second annual Cyber Security Summit. The University of Minnesota Technological Leadership Institute is one of the summit’s presenting sponsors.
The U.S. relies on a vast array of information networks that allow people to communicate and travel, power homes, run the economy, and provide government services. Yet cyber intrusions and attacks have increased dramatically over the last decade, exposing sensitive personal and business information, disrupting critical operations, and imposing high costs on the economy.
This Cyber Security Summit will bring together the technology business community with government policy makers and leaders in academia to discuss cyber threats. The summit will focus on two themes—cyber threat identification as well as information sharing and privacy.
The event, which has grown from a half-day summit last year to a two-day summit this year, will feature a nationally recognized lineup of speakers including:
In addition, panel discussions and networking breaks will allow for those attending the summit to interact and join the discussion on cyber security.
The 2012 Cyber Security Summit is open to representatives of both private and public organizations. Great savings are available for students, faculty, and staff from any college or university who register before Friday, Sept. 21.
