Published March 11, 2015
NDSU, in partnership with the North Dakota Education Technology Council, EduTech and the North Dakota Information Technology Department, is scheduled to host the North Dakota Cyber Security Conference on March 17.
The event will bring together professionals from education, government and industry to explore strategies, best practices and innovative solutions to address today's challenges in cyber security.
NDSU will host a cyber security conference to help North Dakota professionals who work in education, government and industry address the challenges of protecting data.
“Cyber security threats are becoming increasingly sophisticated, with more immediate and tangible effects on all of us,” said NDSU Provost Beth Ingram. “The intent of this forum is to bring people into the conversation about security; I’m delighted that NDSU is in a position to facilitate such an event for our state.
The theme of the conference, “Cyber Security is Our Shared Responsibility,” speaks to the vast scope of modern cyber threats. Those threats call for active participation from individuals and organizations across the state and beyond.
More than 25 local and regional experts will present.
“Now, more than ever, we all play a role in safeguarding data,” said Marc Wallman, NDSU vice president for information technology. “Our goal is to raise awareness and broaden understanding to create safer communities here and beyond NDSU’s borders.”
