Addressing Government and Private Sector Challenges

Organizations are faced with disruptive events causing cyber and physical impacts that are increasing in both frequency and complexity, and we can no longer afford to focus exclusively on detection and prevention as a strategy. The time to prepare and implement a resilient approach is in advance of disruptive events. Enterprise risk management and a resilient approach to cybersecurity focus the organization on managing risk to critical assets by optimizing both protection and continuity strategies. Although a daunting challenge, improving your capabilities does not always require significant additional financial investment.

The Software Engineering Institutues's CERT Division is hosting a day-long symposium focused on proactively developing and implementing a cybersecurity risk and resilience strategy. A team of experts, from both the public and private sectors, will explore cybersecurity scenarios and provide guidance that you can apply immediately within any organization.

Registration to this event is free, but space is limited to the first 200 registrants. A continental breakfast and lunch will be provided. Participants will also receive a recently developed, hard-copy implementation guide covering the symposium topics.

We hope you can join us for this important event!
