The need for cyber security has become increasingly important as more systems and communications rely on internet connectivity and electronic control.  The risks, methods of prevention, actions for mitigation, and the path to recovery are shared among all aspects of business and community in Wisconsin.

To provide a complete introduction and relevant case studies this conference is providing focused panels on Industry, Energy, Water, and Talent.  Each panel has been developed with sector experts including the Midwest Energy Research Consortium, the NEW IT Alliance, The Water Council, and the Wisconsin Manufacturing Extension Partnership.
