This half-day workshop is in collaboration with the 7th Annual Wisconsin Governor’s Cybersecurity Summit and is a kick-off to National Cybersecurity Awareness Month – observed annually during October.

Small and medium-sized organizations all have valuable data, which makes them prime targets for cybercriminals. However, these organizations (small businesses, nonprofits, local governments, schools etc.) are often under-resourced when it comes to protecting their sensitive assets. The National Cyber Security Alliance has developed a free hands-on half-day workshop to help organizations:

  • Identify which business assets others want
  • Protect those assets
  • Detect when something has gone wrong
  • Respond quickly and appropriately with an action plan
  • Recover after a breach


8:30 – 9:00 a.m.: Registration
9:00 – 10:00 a.m.: Fireside chat with local and national experts
10:00 a.m -12:00 p.m.: Tabletop workshop during which attendees will define what cybersecurity is, identify common misconceptions, learn “quick wins” to put into action now and begin developing their own strategy for minimizing cybersecurity threats.
