Technology, Management & Budget
The Michigan Cyber Summit is scheduled for October 7 at Eastern Michigan University's Marriott Eagle Crest Hotel and Convention Center. The Michigan Cyber Summit brings together experts to address a range of cyber security issues affecting business, education, information technology, law enforcement, and personal use.
The State of Michigan has long been a national leader when it comes to cyber security, having placed a high emphasis on protecting the state's computer systems and networks. The centralized technology model within state government places Michigan in a strong position to implement security efforts. In addition, the Michigan Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MI-ISAC) is established to address the state's cyber security readiness and critical infrastructure coordination.
Registration for the Michigan Cyber Summit will open in mid-August, with recognized speakers and experts from around the country to be featured on the agenda. The Summit is a partnership between all levels of government, including local collaboration from groups such as the Washtenaw County Cyber Citizenship Coalition (http://washtenawcybercoalition.org/).
More information about the event as well as registration instructions will be posted in mid-August on state's cyber security site found here: www.michigan.gov/cybersecurity
