USM Hosts Cyber Security Summit

The University of Southern Maine is hosting the Partnership in Cyber Security Summit with Honorary Hosts Senator Collins and Senator King on 10 October 2017 at the University of Southern Maine Abramson Center. Summit Sponsors include: Maine Emergency Management Agency, Maine Cyber Security Cluster, and Coast Guard Sector Northern New England.

The Partnership in Cyber Security Summit's goal is to discuss future cyber security threats, vulnerabilities and consequences facing the region and address solutions that will mitigate the impact of future threats. The target audience is organizations of all sizes in the Northern New England region with the knowledge of or interest in Cyber Security.

As cyber technology penetrates every aspect of our lives the number of reachable and exploitable vulnerabilities continues to grow. There isn’t an industry or institution that is isolated from the risks posed by the expanding attack surfaces. The Partnership in Cyber Security Summit morning session will endeavor to unmask future threats and vulnerabilities and address the challenges of rethinking our approaches to managing threats and vulnerabilities. The afternoon session will identify solutions and resources that will help to build the regional wall that will provide the tools to prevent, mitigate, and recover from a cyber attack.

The Maine Syber Security Cluster will appear at the Cyber Security Summit, with the METI and Digital Barbarians projects on display for those wishing to know more. We hope to see you there!
