Keynote Speakers Announced for Cyber:Secured Forum Bob Troyer and Judy Smith of the Colorado U.S. Attorney’s Office to Discuss Cybercrime Trends and Developments
Denver, CO (May 4, 2018) – The Security Industry Association (SIA), PSA Security Network and ISC Security Events have announced the keynote speakers for the upcoming Cyber:Secured Forum – an event centered on how to improve and maintain the cybersecurity of integrated solutions and physical security systems. At this inaugural event June 4–6 in Denver, Colorado, U.S. Attorney for Colorado Bob Troyer and Judy Smith, chief of the Colorado U.S. Attorney’s Office’s Cybercrime and National Security Section, will discuss the cyber threat landscape both nationally and locally, including lesser-known cyber threats that impact our daily routines. They will also share the motivation behind the creation of the office’s Cybercrime and National Security Section and provide insight into how the office can assist private and government partners.
Cyber:Secured Forum, hosted by PSA Security Network, ISC Security Events and SIA, will explore the ramifications of cybercrime, the strategies for cyber hardening and new technologies and tools designed to improve the security of solutions and systems and provide a framework for developing new business opportunities.
“Cyber:Secured Forum is about practical advice that manufacturers, integrators and the security practitioner community can take back to their businesses and put into action right away,” said SIA CEO Don Erickson.
“Integrators who are going to be deploying products onto an end user’s network have a responsibility to be literate when it comes to cybersecurity,” said Bill Bozeman, president and CEO of PSA Security Network. “Cybersecurity challenges are not going away, and while they certainly present a liability, they also present opportunities for integrators who choose to be progressive and find new ways to support end users in the ongoing race to stay in front of cyber issues.”
Attendees of Cyber:Secured Forum – whether physical security and IT leaders, systems integrators or cyber professionals – will have the opportunity to interact with peers, share lessons and learn how to make their businesses more resilient, their systems more secure and their cyber practices standardized.
“It’s going to be different from a lot of other cybersecurity events because a lot of the cyber events in the industry are focused more on cyber in a silo,” said Will Wise, group vice president of the ISC Security Events. “What we’re really embracing here and uniquely bringing together through our partnership is the mixture of the physical security, IoT, integrators and manufacturers together with IT and cyber.”
This event will highlight cyber-hardening of integrated security systems, how to improve your firm’s cyber posture, new cybersecurity tools and resources for integrators and the business of cyber from liabilities to opportunities.
