    Cyber Awareness Breakfast Series Videos

    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.


    The following is a series of videos from the Breakfast Conference on June 5th, 2012:
