Silicon Flatirons presents this conference in partnership with the Federal Communications Bar Association Rocky Mountain Chapter.
From DDoS attacks to ransomware to data breaches, there is no shortage of cyber threats in today’s connected world. The risks to consumers, businesses of all sizes, and governments are only increasing with the rapid proliferation of connected devices known as the “Internet of Things” (IoT), many of which are highly vulnerable to exploitation. Recent reports conclude that the number of IoT devices has surpassed the number of desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones combined and is only expected to grow dramatically. The IoT promise of increased productivity, safety, and convenience is in jeopardy, unless cybersecurity is more fully addressed by all stakeholders.
With the constant barrage of cyber incidents and associated headlines, governments at all levels are taking notice and seeking to grapple with the rapidly evolving threat landscape. Cybersecurity is no longer the domain of the IT department, but rather a key area of governance for nearly all enterprises. This event will examine key elements of federal cybersecurity policy and the evolving risk landscape faced by enterprises.
