What Keeps Me Up at Night?

The Merging of Cyber and Physical Security Threats

Tuesday, October 11  |  8:30am – 9:30am

Ever wonder what runs through the mind of a veteran cybersecurity professional after they sign off for the day? Join us for our keynote presentation from Mike Lettman, Cyber Security Advisor (DHS) and former CISO from the states of Arizona and Wisconsin, for insights on the scary things keeping him up at night—including how the cyber and physical threats are merging. Specifically, how a cyber-attack can have physical affects and vice versa.

Through real-life examples, Mike will also share the latest intel about who the bad actors are, the current threats that exist in the cybersecurity landscape, and what emerging cyber threats we all need to be aware of.

Attendees will leave with best practices to protect their technology environment and data as well as what free cyber security resources, alerts, and data, are available from the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA).
