MONTEREY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tech Regiment is hosting the 2nd Insider Threat Summit, which blends solutions, expertise and manpower to assist with personnel security issues including cyber security, continuous evaluation of privileged identities and ethical physical security considerations. Insider Threat Summit is held at the Hyatt Regency Monterey, California on March 29th & 30th and is FREE for all active government employees to attend.
California needs security solutions and experts to directly respond to the issues brought up in yesterday’s hearing by the Members of the Assembly Committee on Privacy and Consumer Protection and Select Committee on Cybersecurity. There’s been a chain of critical reactions put in place by the Governor’s office after accusations were made by State lawmakers stating Department of Technology officials are failing to secure state agencies, deemed vulnerable to insider threats and hacks.
Tech Regiment, a California-based technology company, partners with leading cyber security specialists in the Nation. Paul Temple, Tech Regiment CEO states, “We recognize a great opportunity. With our in-depth understanding of security-threats, expansive portfolio and technologies, we are in a unique position to help.” The plan is to educate others on strategic security solutions and create a platform for networking, including career opportunities, at the summit in March.
According to Michele Robinson, CA CISO and last year’s concerned Keynote at Insider Threat Summit "California has made great strides in the last few years…. Our work is far from done, and it will never be done." In 2015, Auditor Elaine Howle found holes in the online security of 73 of 77 agencies; the root of the problem - not having enough trained employees to help secure networks and mitigate data breaches.
If anyone has the capability to fill holes in the online security of California agencies, it’s the participants at the Insider Threat Summit. “We are bringing together attendees from all over the world in the federal, commercial and educational arenas, but here has not been a lot of interest from the State yet.” - said Mia Medeiros, Events Director at Tech Regiment.
"We have 160 departments that are holding your private information…. yes, there is a risk for the typical Californian," Assemblywoman Jacqui Irwin, D-Thousand Oaks, told KCRA 3 news.
“These risks and the security of everyday people are something we take very seriously, and are the reason we create events like Insider Threat Summit,” says Medeiros.
The goal at the summit is: To provide a forum of key security-focused leaders from the federal, state, local educational (SLED) and commercial arenas who can share, enlighten and stimulate your security mindset allowing you to meet your challenges head on.
