Event Description

A Vision for Improving Security Collaboration

As technology improves and digital communication becomes an ever increasingly important part of everyday life, the demand for Government and Educational Institutions to provide protection for citizens from Cyber based attacks, also increases, often at an alarming rate. The need for collaboration between branches of Government, the Education Community, and Private Industry has reached the point where sharing data, best practices, and Cyber Strategy is no longer an option.

This year’s Cybersecurity event will focus on overcoming the Cyber Threats facing Local Government, School Districts, and Higher Education. By bringing together representatives from all facets of Public Sector, this forum will create an opportunity for idea sharing, collaborative strategy development, and the creation of a Community of Interest that will ultimately benefit the People of California.

This Year’s Educational Tracks will include:

  • Developing and Leveraging Threat Intelligence
  • Dealing with Privacy and Incident Response
  • Funding a Cyber Security Strategy
  • Designing an Effective Cyber Security Program
  • Exploring the Latest Innovations in Cyber Technology
  • Developing Cyber Talent and a Security Savvy Workforce
  • SCADA/ICS Focus – Protecting the Critical Infrastructure

In addition, attendees will have an opportunity to attend a panel discussion with Experts from Leading Security Command Centers (SOCs), SANS Training, as well as Security Workshops designed to give hands on education in Cyber Security Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures.

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.”
