COLLEGE STATION – The Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) has opened registration for the TEEX Cyber Readiness Summit, which will take place from February 13 to 15 of 2024, at the Embassy Suites Hotel and Convention Center in San Marcos.
At the summit, attendees will learn strategies to recognize and respond to cyber threats. Not only for dedicated cyber professionals, the summit will benefit personnel from private industry, municipalities, counties, economic development organizations and chambers of commerce, including hospitals, schools, infrastructure and city services.
The event’s theme will be “Driving a healthy, prosperous, resilient community,” and keynote and session topics will cover the five components of the U.S. government-sponsored cybersecurity framework: identify, protect, detect, respond and recover.
In addition to four keynote speakers and multiple breakout sessions, TEEX cyber instructors will guide attendees through a realistic cyberattack scenario and debriefing. There will also be a variety of networking opportunities and vendors.
Lisa Mutchler, Division Director of TEEX Business and Cyber Solutions, says, “Our goal is to educate and increase awareness about how personnel in both the public and private sector can identify and protect their communities and businesses from cyberattacks. The Cyber Readiness Summit is also the perfect opportunity for attendees to network with industry experts and vendors to discuss potential vulnerabilities and mitigation strategies.”
Leading up to the summit, TEEX will host a series of live virtual cybersecurity panel discussions. The first was in March, and the second, “Cyber Threats to Manufacturers & Businesses: Ransomware,” will take place on July 27, 2023. Register here to attend the online panel discussion.
