A Vision for Securing California Government Information and Operations

This past year has been dubbed the year of Digital Disruption. The nightly news consistently reported on breaches of large retailers, financial institutions, and government agencies. These reports have brought home the scope and severity of the problem to the Executive Suite. Government Leaders are realizing the importance of implementing effective security and privacy practices, the need to plan for business continuity, the need for partnership between impacted organizations, the development of a risk management strategy and the training and education of all security related personnel.

This year’s Cyber Security event has expanded the partnerships to create a more holistic view of the issues while continuing to promote awareness and deliver an educational curriculum that will return attendees to their organizations better equipped to take action and be more effective in the following areas:

  • Convergence of Incident Management and Emergency Management: Working Together When an Attack Becomes a Cyber Emergency
  • Information Sharing and Collaboration: Connecting the Dots to Reveal the Larger Picture
  • Security and Privacy Leadership: Informed Risk-based Decision Making and Investment
  • Risk Management: Prevention through continuous Risk Analysis and Assessment
  • Building Security In: Intelligent Security Design, Development and Acquisition
  • Business Continuity and Technology Recovery Planning: Crisis Communication and Consequence Management
  • Privacy: Protecting Privacy in the Internet of Everything

What People Are Saying...

  • “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.”
