This past year has been dubbed the year of the mega-breach by many. Breaches of many large retailers, financial institutions, and a major movie studio made headlines. Headlines certainly grab the attention of the Executive Suite and have heightened awareness about the importance of an effective risk management strategy, and the implementation of security and privacy practices.

This year’s event will continue to promote awareness and deliver educational curriculum with a strong emphasis on returning attendees to their organizations better equipped to take action and be more effective in the following areas:

  • Security and Privacy Leadership: Informed Risk-based Decision Making and Investment

About PSP

What People Are Saying...

  • “You and your team are awesome to work with and I agree the best event so far. And it was not just the sessions and plenaries, it was also many hallway conversations I was participating in and listening to. You are helping build a real community in partnership with vendors, program leaders, and IT professionals. It takes all three to build effective programs and deliver successful projects. Great job! ”

    — Bill Otterbeck, California Department of Health Care Services

  • “The Project Delivery Summit has brought to light education and training opportunities highlighting project management disciplines to better enable the successful delivery of State IT Projects. It has filled a need in terms of delivering free training on the pillars surrounding managing projects to the State of CA workforce. With the public and private sector working together to create content, the workforce has benefited in terms of exposure to education and training that otherwise they may not have gotten. This summit is in its second year, and 70% of the attendees were new to the summit. Not only are IT personnel invited to this summit, but the department’s program areas are invited as well in order to better educate them. Through this exposure, the Department of Technology has been successful in launching our Project Academy Series which takes a deeper dive into the content that is discussed in these forums. The better educated and trained workforce, the more successful we will be in delivering projects for the State of CA. ”
