Digital Threats Forum Coming to Champlain on March 10

Digital Threats header

Events both national and local in the last few months have made clear how important cyber security is to organizations of all sizes - so what are today's threats and how should you respond if your organization is targeted?

Join Champlain College and the U.S. Department of Justice for a free one-day conference outlining key current cyber threats to organizations of all sizes, as well as what tactics you should be using to prepare and to respond to those threats. The conference will also include guidance on how to proceed when you are targeted - and conversations about real-life scenarios we've faced here in Vermont and lessons learned from organizations across the country.

Presenters will include representatives from local organizations as well as government experts from the FBI, U.S. Department of Justice and Vermont investigators, as well as Vermont Attorney General T.J. Donovan and Burlington Electric CEO Neale Lunderville.
