Atlanta Showcase: The Cyber Ecosystem

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The State of Georgia and the City of Atlanta have worked diligently over the last several years to create a market and ecosystem that fully supports - thus attracts - cybersecurity companies and technology development. The state's commitment is far-reaching: technology hubs in Atlanta, to the Governor's Office, to the state-of-the-art, Georgia Cyber Innovation & Training Center located in Athens.

People in Georgia with cyber skills and those who wish to pursue opportunities in the cyber industry, follow. People are benefiting greatly from this state's commitment to building infrastructure, communities, educational opportunities, and jobs in cybersecurity.

In this session, you'll meet several of the architects, thought-leaders, and managers of this far-reaching and intricate (and still growing!) cybersecurity ecosystem in Georgia. Hear how they're making it happen!
