Organisers say the event attracts more than 350 people each year.
“For the past two decades, the forum has been the leading technology event in Western New York, featuring cybersecurity/technology vendor showcases, educational sessions, and nationally recognized speakers,” said Wydysh. “We’re delighted that it’s back this year after being delayed for the past two years due to the pandemic.”
Hosted by the Niagara County Department of Information Technology in association with InfoTech WNY and InfraGard, the event is free to attendees. InfraGard is a partnership between the FBI and members of the private sector to protect America’s critical infrastructure.
Some of the topics that will be covered include how the security industry is using today’s rapidly changing technologies to drive cloud cybersecurity, endpoint security and cyber resilience; how organizations can improve their security posture; and the latest trends affecting cybersecurity, according to Niagara County IT Director William Flynn .
“Cybersecurity is always at the forefront for those of us in this field, and this forum keeps us up to date with the latest improvements and best practices,” said Flynn, noting that the forum is eligible for ISC2 and ISACA recertification of six CPE hours certified.
