Minnesota Governor Dayton to speak
at 2017 Cyber Security Summit


 

Gov. Mark Dayton, who earlier this month signed a proclamation declaring October "Cybersecurity Awareness Month" in Minnesota, will help welcome attendees from 28 states and 6 countries to the 7th Annual Cyber Security Summit in Minneapolis.

Gov. Dayton will deliver remarks during the Summit's first full day on Oct. 24 at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

Gov. Dayton is among 38 governors who pledged at a meeting of the National Governors Association this summer to make cybersecurity at top priority.

The 2017 Summit kicks off on Oct. 23 with a series of half-day events, including sessions targeting investors, developers, and a new workshop focused on health care and medical device security. The main Summit opens on Oct. 24 and divided into two sections - "Day 1: Meet the Threat" and "Day 2: Beat the Threat." Topics covered during the Summit include ransomware, phishing, the Dark Web and more. There is also a special session devoted specifically to helping small and mid-size businesses understand and mitigate their cyber risk.

Other distinguished speakers at this year's Summit include Dr. Stacey Dixon, Deputy Director of The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA). The Washington, DC-based organization is part of the Office of the Director of  National Intelligence and invests in high-risk/high-payoff research programs that have the potential to provide the U.S. with an intelligence advantage over adversaries.
