A recent World Economic Forum report warned that the three top global risks to society, by likelihood, are:
No US cybersecurity division deals with this tricky trifecta daily, except for the exceptional team at NOAA. Covering from sea to space, NOAA provides minute-to-minute data about the conditions of our oceans, our major waterways and our atmosphere. And to do it without any interruptions, they rely heavily on a secure and resilient global network infrastructure.
So that NOAA's Cybersecurity Division is prepared for every worst-case digital scenario, their Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) hosts an annual NOAA IT Security Conference. This year's event includes briefings from various NOAA components and industry leaders. There will be an impressive speaker lineup and a vendor meet and greet.
Last year's popular event boasted 300 attendees, the vast majority of whom met with vendors during the multiple conference breaks (including the dedicated time for industry meet and greet). Exhibit space and sponsorship opportunities are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Sign up early, as this event filled up in record time last year!
