California Technology Agency Secretary Carlos Ramos will kick-off National Cyber Security Awareness Month this Tuesday, October 2 at the 11th Annual Information Technology Security Fair in Sacramento. He will be joined by the Director of California’s Office of Information Security Keith Tresh and an impressive list of state, federal and private sector cyber security leaders, including National Institute of Standards and Technology Fellow Dr. Ron Ross and U.S. Homeland Security’s Cyber Security Division Director Kelvin Coleman.
Free to the public sector, the one-day fair is an interactive and educational forum hosted by the California Technology Agency and Public Sector Partners. This year’s focus: “Government Leaders – Managing Risk to Your Mission IS Possible”. Leading government and private security experts will discuss the major threats facing California’s cyber security and IT community, providing quality services to Californians securely, as well as new technologies available to minimize risks, at workshops and breakout sessions throughout the day.
Honoring this year’s theme, “Our Shared Responsibility”, California’s Annual Information Technology Security Fair is the kick-off event for National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM). Since 2003, National Cyber Security Awareness Month has focused on the need for improved online safety and security for all. The National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) coordinates with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MSISAC) throughout the year to empower consumers, schools, businesses and government agencies to stay safe online.
