2017 marks a milestone for New York State, as we celebrate our 20th Anniversary of the Annual Cyber Security Conference. The past 20 years has seen a remarkable evolution in the field of cyber security.

However, new challenges arise alongside growth, and increasing technological exposure. Countering these risks remains the responsibility of both the public and private sectors and we must continue to remain active to combat these issues.
This year's conference examines the broad range of today's cyber challenges and the ways in which organizations can improve security, and create resiliency against cyber threats. The conference offers something for everyone--whether you're a technology user, IT professional, government employee, or business owner. Join more than 1,200 of your colleagues from the public and private sectors who attend this conference. Learn from leading experts in the industry and participate in engaging sessions that provide real-world information you can apply immediately in minimizing the cyber risks in your own environment.
