One fundamental goal of the Cyburgh, PA Initiative is to bring together the academic, government, and private sector communities to deliberately advance Pittsburgh as an internationally recognized leader in cybersecurity. Another goal is to provide Pittsburgh organizations with solutions to cybersecurity challenges across people, process, and technology. Leveraging the almost 20 years of lessons learned and best practices from ISACs, the Cyburgh, PA event on May 10, 2017 seeks to discuss the benefits that ISACs bring to the Pittsburgh region, providing a means for sharing information about cybersecurity-related concerns common to all organizations. 


Plan to join us on May 10, 2017, for this exciting event.
