The 13th Annual Cyber Security Summit: Resilience Unlocked has been created with an eye towards community connections. We come together this week to be with this fantastic and growing network of cyber security experts, practitioners, and students – all of whom are thought leaders – and are leveraging technology to maximize the experience.

Public Sector Seminar
Tuesday, October 24 | 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Public sector is often described as “government”, but that doesn’t do it justice. Public sector encompasses township, municipality, city, county, state, local, tribal and federal organizations. Both elected and appointed public servants provide health, safety, criminal justice, housing, transportation, election and utility services, with one thing in common. Technology is the tie that binds, and the backbone that keeps our complex existence intact. This seminar brings solutions for today’s many shared cyber security challenges with a public sector focus.

Healthcare & Medical Device Seminar
Tuesday October 24 | 9:30 AM – 4:00 PM
Maslow was right: survey ten people about what matters most, and health, safety and security sit atop humanity’s hierarchy of needs. Securing privileged health histories and patient payment information, plus protecting insulin pumps, pacemakers and medication dispensers from hackers is a tall order. The aviation industry was the first to recognize that a “coopetition” model with broad information-sharing saves lives, and this seminar follows suit with input from operational IT leaders, engineers, product security experts and other cyber-centric professionals.

Industrial Critical Function Security Seminar
Tuesday, October 24 | 8:30-4:30
Industrial security is a term met with quizzical looks at cocktail parties. “Critical functions” helps to paint the picture of processes, services, and systems so vital that their disruption, corruption or dysfunction would have a debilitating effect on physical or economic security, health or safety. Beyond government, it’s both public and private sector. Think clean water. Hospitals. Electricity. Air traffic control. Food shelves. Fuel pumps. The Mississippi’s 29 locks and dams required to move 175M tons of freight each year. In sum, we’ll talk about protecting what matters most.

Women in Cyber Sessions
Tuesday, October 24 |8:30 AM – 4:00 PM
Fact: cyber security doesn’t always equate to job security. This year’s Women in Cyber lineup looks at the resiliency horizon through a female-focused lens. The dynamic and sometimes daunting nature of technology careers is best navigated with some “been there” wisdom. These seven sessions help you chart a path to a career that endures. Flexibility. Foresight. Follow your feels. Net new skills and brag a bit! Tackle team talks to hold space and recognize race. You’ll leave ready to bolster the work you want to do, and open up new opportunities.

The Cyber Security Summit Community Board
This year we introduce a new Community Board, where we can share thoughts, ideas and some prompted “best

This year the traditional conference passport is sporting a new, sustainable look in the Summit APP, thanks to sponsor Material.
