State Sets Fifth Cybersecurity Summit

LANSING – The fifth annual Michigan state cyber summit is set for October — and event at which experts from across the globe will gather to discuss the thorny cybersecurity attacks that plague businesses, government and personal Internet users. 

The 2016 North American International Cyber Summit is scheduled for Oct. 17 at the Cobo Center in Detroit.

“This event has grown into one of the preeminent cybersecurity forums in the world,” said Michigan Department of Technology, Management and Budget Director and state Chief Information Officer David Behen. “There is no better opportunity to learn from and network with the leaders in the cyber world, it is truly a must-attend event.”

The summit agenda will feature internationally recognized keynote speakers as well as experts from across the county to lead breakout sessions on the following featured industry topics: business, education and families, law enforcement, government, defense and automotive.

The event will also feature a live cybersecurity exercise.

Recognized as a national leader in cybersecurity, Michigan’s annual cyber summit serves as a platform for regional, national and international thought leadership.
