A recent World Economic Forum report warned that the three top global risks to society, by likelihood, are:
- Extreme Weather Events
- Natural Disasters
- Cyber Attacks
No U.S. cybersecurity division deals with this tricky trifecta daily, except for the exceptional team at NOAA. Covering from sea to space, NOAA provides minute-to-minute data about the conditions of our oceans, our major waterways and our atmosphere. And to do it without any interruptions, they rely heavily on a secure and resilient global network infrastructure.
So that NOAA's Cybersecurity Division is prepared for every worst-case digital scenario, their Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) hosts an annual NOAA IT Security and Privacy Conference. This year's event includes briefings from various NOAA components and industry leaders. There will be an impressive speaker lineup and a vendor meet and greet.
