The Michigan Cyber Awareness Breakfast
Conference Series 2012 serves as a
follow-up to the Michigan Cyber Summit
2011 hosted last fall by Michigan Governor
Rick Snyder. This series provides
updates to the Michigan Cyber Initiative
designed for Michigan citizens, business
and industry. Presentations will focus on a
comprehensive, forward-looking blue
print to enhance safety and allow for
Michigan to realize the economic benefits
of the growing cyber security industry.
The State of Michigan will stand as the
showcase for a national model in
public/private partnerships addressing
cyber security. A long time national leader
in cyber security, Michigan places a high
emphasis on protecting the state's
computer systems and networks and was
one of the first states to move to a
centralized IT service model. This
centralized technology model places
Michigan in a strong position to
implement security efforts.
