Cyber Civil Defense Summit 2023
June 14, 2023
The Showroom, D.C.
A one-of-a-kind gathering of cyber defenders, academics, and policymakers
with the mission of protecting our most at-risk public infrastructure.
Defending public life against cyber threats is a national challenge with profoundly local impacts. With low-level cyber attacks like ransomware consistently on the rise, the task of strengthening the defenses of community organizations in every corner of the nation seems impossible to take on.
But no one is alone in this challenge of scaling local and regional cyber defense; across the country, communities are rising up to protect the institutions that uphold public life.
The UC Berkeley Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity is pleased to host this inaugural Cyber Civil Defense Summit to bring together cyber defenders from all sectors in this common mission. This year’s theme is Innovation, and the Summit will showcase and analyze creative programs aimed at helping community organizations, including providing proactive services to bolster resilience and reactive services to enhance incident response and recovery.
The Summit endeavors to join forces across defenders, academics, volunteers, and public servants to showcase replicable models of regional cyber defense. Learn more
