On October 23, 2018, iCEHC will host a conference on the successes of cybersecurity information sharing at The University at Albany in Albany, NY. This event will be hosted jointly by the College of Emergency Preparedness, Homeland Security and Cybersecurity at the University at Albany, and by the Center for Internet Security, including MS-ISAC.
The conference will spotlight real-world success stories of cybersecurity information sharing, particularly instances in several different sectors where entities were able to avoid cyber harm specifically because of information learned through information sharing. This is the first conference involving senior leaders of the information sharing community dedicated principally to identifying, collecting and discussing real-world information sharing successes across sectors.
The public sessions begin at 1:00 PM in the Campus Center Board Room with a keynote address, to be followed by panel discussions until the end of the afternoon with leading public and private experts involved in information sharing. These sessions are free to all but registration is required below.
Confirmed speakers include several of the most prominent leaders of the information sharing community in the nation. They come from many different sectors, from health care to information technology, from financial services to communications, from state and local governments to research and educational institutions.
This conference will interest those wanting to learn more about cybersecurity information sharing and its benefits, whether currently engaged in information sharing or not. Attendees from the business, government, nonprofit and academic worlds are encouraged to attend.
This event and associated research is supported by a grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
