Former NSA Hacker Chief Robert Joyce, who was named Special Assistant to the President and White House Cybersecurity Coordinator in March, will headline an event in Boston on May 22nd entitled, “Securing the Connected Commonwealth: CyberMA Launch.” 

Data is increasingly valuable – and vulnerable. As industries transform and we move towards an integrated digital physical world both, the rewards and risks increase.

Security is at the core of this future. Companies, organizations, educators, public sectors, and consumers need to be vigilant 100% of the time, yet bad actors need only succeed once to achieve their aims, while inflicting immeasurable damage.

Massachusetts is a leader in security vigilance, but there is room for improvement. We must be more networked and proactive, not working in silos. Together with the MassTLC Security Community, CyberMA enables our region to partner with like-minded people and businesses not just in Massachusetts, but across the nation; share insights; access an affordable, easily navigated, real-time threat sharing platform; and provide coordinated advocacy on a state and federal level.

Join us for the launch of The MA Security Initiative and CyberMA on Monday, May 22, 2017 featuring:

  • Phil Bond, Executive Director, CyberUSA
  • Rob Joyce, Special Assistant to the President and White House Cybersecurity Coordinator;
  • Rodney Petersen, Director of the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST);
  • and other key leaders
