TALK is a tech council and active in advocacy issues regarding Cybersecurity and the Internet of Things in DC and within the state. More than 80 percent of all companies have experienced malware and cyber attack activity in 2019 nationwide.
• The purpose of the Cybersecurity Summit is to inform and educate the technology-specific business community as well as the general business community in the Kentuckiana area about issues regarding cybersecurity and cybersecurity policy as well as cyber workforce development. Cybercrime has jumped to the most reported economic crime in PWC’s Global Economic Crime Survey. The demand for cybersecurity experts is growing 12 times faster than the current U.S. job market, making cybersecurity one of the most highly sought-after careers in the country. 95% of all security breaches involve human error.

Goals and Objectives:
In this conference, we will cover the key elements of cybersecurity that all corporations travel. The federal government and its agencies involved in cybersecurity suggest these categories for action: identify, protect, detect, respond and recover.

(A) Explain and Overview the Landscape Regarding Cybersecurity for Area Business Leaders;
(B) Explain and Demonstrate Paths to using Cybersecurity-related Planning Documents available via the federal websites, in assessment, recovery, and strategic planning in this important area. (i.e. NIST Cybersecurity Framework, and other documents);
(C) Share Valued Resources Regarding Technology Toolkits and Corporations that assist in cybersecurity areas of interest, including vulnerability assessment;
(D) Provide Industry-Specific Case Studies of Interest from Speakers with Expertise in Industry for Takeaways on Next Steps (i.e. Banking, Healthcare, or other industry)

Throughout the summer and fall 2016, TALK worked with area school administrators as well as the KY State Board of Education on getting the cyber education pathway (in high-school classrooms) from NICERC (federal agency) into the KY State of Education curricula for all school districts. This has occurred, and it is utilized in Jefferson County. This is for 9th-12th graders, and in Jefferson County looks to include a full “academy” model, which takes the students even deeper in cyber math and science and related principles. NICERC provides this federal curricula at no charge with some funding for classroom supplies and teacher training.
