This workshop presented by the West Central Mountains Economic Development Council and Boise State University's Cyber Operations and Resilience Program, will explore the evolving landscape of cybersecurity threats and the strategies that organizations can use to defend against them. We will discuss the importance of a proactive security posture, effective risk management, and incident response planning. Attendees will come away with practical insights and best practices for securing their networks and data in today's challenging cybersecurity environment. We will highlight projects our students from the Cyber Operations and Resilience program have completed in conjunction with other Idaho communities and how they can help your region as well. Lunch will be provided so an RSVP is greatly appreciated to help us with a headcount!
