Description:

Cybersecurity and defense remains as one of the most critical concerns for every IT leader. Cyber threats continue to originate from a wide variety and ever-multiplying range of threat-vectors; from state-sponsored groups and terrorists to organized criminal elements and an assortment of ransomware attacks. As these groups exercise increasing sophistication in their use of advanced technology, every enterprise with any exposure on the Internet must develop capabilities and solutions to counter and manage each of those threats. Protecting a wide-array of disparate legacy systems as well as managing risks created by third-party service providers and vendors, and ensuring end-user compliance with an ever-increasing list of compliance and regulatory controls and objectives, all at a time of shrinking security budgets and an acute shortage of talent has left many organizations scrambling to find workable solutions. The October Peer Group meeting of the UWEBC IT Peer Group will attempt to address many of these challenges and provide a safe, collaborative learning environment for UWEBC members companies to tap into the collective wisdom of the consortium.


This is an exceptional opportunity for security professionals and IT leaders to hear some leading thought-leaders and experts in the space of cybersecurity and access management, and also interact with peers from other world-class companies’ right here in Wisconsin in collaborative breakout discussions and panel discussions.
