Cyber-Physical Systems Security Forum

abstract representation of security of cyber-physical systems

  • Join us for a Cyber-Physical Systems Security Forum at Boise State University on November 30. This interactive forum is designed to promote discussion on the cyber-physical security risks, threats, and challenges organizations face. To help frame the discussion, we have invited industry leaders to share their experiences in implementing, managing, enforcing, and assessing cyber-physical systems security controls.

    The forum begins with an optional breakfast networking session at 8:30 AM and College of Engineering Dean JoAnn Lighty will kick things off at 9 AM. We will conclude the event with a luncheon and roundtable discussion where your input will help shape our cyber-physical security curricula. Check out the agenda for more detail.
