Cyber Civil Defense Summit 2024

June 13, 2024
The International Spy Museum
Washington, 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 the second annual Cyber Civil Defense Summit to bring together cyber defenders from all sectors in this common mission.

Jen Easterly, Director of the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) delivers a keynote speech at Cyber Civil Defense Summit 2023.

The Summit endeavors to join forces across defenders, academics, volunteers, and public servants working on fortifying regional cyber defense. Learn more
