TAO Annual Cyber Security Summit

November 5, 2021 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm

How Cyber Affects Every Life
In addition to a global pandemic and social unrest, 2020 was a year that saw over 1,000 data breaches and over 155 million individuals affected by data exposures or accidental revelation of sensitive information due to less-than-adequate information security. Beyond data breaches, the news is replete with cyber attacks causing the failure of military equipment and the theft of national security secrets.

While these threats and attacks are a big deal, the outcomes rarely have an immediate impact on an average citizen’s life; however, when a cyber attack causes electrical blackouts, gasoline shortages or compromises your medical record, the consequences hit much closer to home. Please join the Technology Association of Oregon (TAO) on Friday, November 5th, 8:30 AM to 3:45 PM, as we bring cyber security experts and professionals together to explore how cyber security and cyber threats are affecting everyday life for business owners,  security professionals and individual consumers.

During this event, we will discuss the current state of cybersecurity in Oregon, explore the everyday impact of cyber precautions and attacks, discuss building the cyber professional talent pipeline and get a global perspective on cyber from international experts at Mastercard. Additionally, we will get a presentation on the technical trends occurring in cyber as well as an interactive exercise for attendees to walk away with actionable learnings. Lastly, there is a strong cybersecurity start-up ecosystem in the state and four of these companies will give a lightning talk about their innovative technologies that will keep your business from being disrupted.
