Regional Cybersecurity Workshop

The CyberRISK (Regional Information Security Knowledge-sharing) workshop brings together twenty Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) with diverse characteristics and academic missions, but with a shared need for training, resources, and peer networking . Because cybersecurity postures arise from policy and technical designs, attending institutions bring two participants: one policy lead (CIO or senior leader with policy-setting authority) and one technical lead (security or networking resource responsible for security protections). Workshop programs follow policy and technical tracks, emphasizing their coordination for effectiveness and coherence. Pre-workshop surveys shape workshop content so it is relevant for the diverse institutional circumstances, priorities, and levels of cybersecurity maturity.

National and regional cyber experts, network operators, and research university peers participate to broaden and diversify insight into best practices and relevant service offerings, and to promote interaction around campus cyberinfrastructure, science use cases, and regional / national cyberinfrastructure resources.
