Cyber Civil Defense Summit 2024
June 13, 2024
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. The event will spotlight quantitative research on topics in public interest cybersecurity and explore evidence-informed strategies to bolster the cyber resilience of civic organizations too often left behind in cybersecurity efforts.
The Summit endeavors to join forces across defenders, academics, volunteers, and public servants working on fortifying regional cyber defense. Learn more
