State Police Trooper Christian Reed says the goal is to provide insight into the growing threat of cybersecurity on small businesses and critical infrastructure.

“All the different nuances thats related to cybersecurity. How they can protect their daily lives but also their businesses and secure information or data.”

With several sessions featuring both in-person and virtual experiences, the summit will explore cybersecurity requirements and best practices to improve business security. Reed says cybersecurity leaders and experts will discuss strategies on how to maximize security.

“We’re going to have a panel of cybersecurity members and those that work day in and day out in this particular field so they can better discuss these potential threats or the things that are happening each and every day.”

This one-day summit is expected to attract more than 200 attendees. Reed says cybersecurity continues to be more prevalent requiring organizations of all sizes to be more vigilant.

“Dealing with technology we have to be able to combat ourselves with the best protection.”
