On behalf of the ACC Foundation, we invite you to participate in our one-day Cybersecurity Summit at Simon Fraser University - Vancouver Campus. This Summit will further explore key topics of interest stemming from the recent release of the 2nd edition of the ACC Foundation 2018: State of Cybersecurity Report. Cybersecurity touches every aspect of consumer and corporate culture today, and vulnerabilities present grave financial, legal, and reputational risks to the enterprise and individuals. Preventing, preparing for, and responding to data breaches in real time are chief concerns for organizations. This Summit is a unique way to engage and educate professionals concerning this timely topic and will offer educational sessions for attendees to sharpen their cybersecurity skills and knowledge. The content will focus on key concerns organizations face related to cybersecurity, prevention and best practices. The Summit will run concurrent educational sessions with topics of interest for law firms, corporations, and government officials.

Unique sponsorship opportunities are available for this event.
