I am excited to report that I’m planning to attend the 2012 Cyber Security Summit. I will take good notes and post, but I encourage folks to think about attending too. As we build our entire lives online, I think it makes sense for everyone to work together to protect those online lives and security is definitely a case where you’re only as strong as your weakest link. So it behooves technology and community leaders to make sure that they are not that weakest link!
The Cyber Security Summit is focused on changing the paradigm of how we look at digital space and security. Our mission is to bring together leaders from the government, business, and non-profit sectors to collaborate on digital infrastructure security issues. These important issues have a profound impact on all units of society, from the largest- governments and multinational corporations, to the smallest- store owners and individuals. In an ever increasing digital world, all levels of government and business operations must be reexamined to address growing cyber security threats.
The Cyber Security Summit serves as a platform for the discussion and generation of new knowledge on a topic that is critical to our state’s and our nation’s future. By fostering the collaboration of the public and private sectors, our goal is to conceive new, innovative counter measures against cyber security threats.
