The health and well-being of our employees, customers, partners, and communities are top priorities for Route Fifty and Nextgov and we have continued to monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak closely.
Out of an abundance of caution, we have collectively made the decision to postpone CyberSmart Denver originally scheduled for Thursday, March 26, 2020.
Your interest in CyberSmart Denver is highly appreciated! Please look for further communications as we finalize alternative plans for the event, as our goal is to reschedule for a later date.
While we regret any inconvenience that our decision may cause, we are committed to limiting the spread of this virus and safeguarding the health of our communities.
As many vital government services and data move online, the protection of government information and infrastructure from looming cyber-attacks is more important than ever before. Initiatives across Colorado, such as READYColorado and the National Cybersecurity Center, show that the best fortification strategy is developing a robust community based cyber culture. This event will bring together federal, military, state, and local leaders to discuss the elements that serve as the foundation for a strong cyber culture. Join Route Fifty and Nextgov for the first of eight installments in our CyberSmart series. Register today to participate in a lively conversation that will showcase Colorado’s unique cybersecurity assets, and highlight opportunities for all levels of government to unite in building a strong, secure cyber environment.
Spotlight on Local Leaders
Colorado has 4,000 local governments and with that comes a dense, and sometimes confusing, cybersecurity scene. Many of these governments only have one official to deal with all security and information technology topics. Hear local government officials share how they creatively tackle cyber challenges when faced with problems such as lack of budget and community buy-in.
Session Presented by our Underwriter, Fortinet
Growing the Cybersecurity Ecosystem Case Study Presentation
In the ever-evolving cyber threat landscape, it is vital to think about what preparation and growth might look like for different communities. Hear from a member of the Colorado Springs Chamber of Commerce on diversification programs and growing the region's cyber capabilities.
Homeland Security Advisory Committee Case Study Presentation
In order to create a prepared and resilient Colorado, the Homeland Security Advisory Committee was created in 2012. At the end of last year, they presented the 2019-2023 Colorado Homeland Security Strategy. By bringing together state, local, federal and private sector perspectives, this strategy employs holistic cyber expertise to better protect Colorado’s services and data. Hear from a member of the Advisory Committee present on future projects and trends in the state security landscape.
Cybersecurity is a key part of the future of defense and military operations in the United States. We’ll sit down with two leaders in the Colorado area to discuss the importance of securing our digital infrastructure alongside increased cyber education and training programs.
