2nd Annual Cybersecurity Conference


Thursday, July 20, 2017
Crowne Plaza Lombard Downers Grove l 1250 Roosevelt Road l Glen Ellyn, IL
7:00 am – 3:00 pm

Cybersecurity is an issue that impacts all of us, regardless of who we or what we do (big or small business). Collaboration and communication between government entities and the private sector is essential to our success combating cyber threats. This event brings together public and private entities to discuss policy and best practice in cybersecurity to help businesses be prepared for whatever the future brings.

It’s not a matter of IF you will be hacked, it’s a matter of WHEN. Be prepared for that inevitability and learn how to handle it with best practices, tips and tools for strengthening your cybersecurity program and more.
