Watch the 2019 Presentations


Lockdown 2019 was a success!

Cybersecurity and information technology professionals came together to learn and collaborate on cutting edge topics impacting the industry. Living in a Cyber World was the conference theme this year which addressed the challenges we face as more devices make up our cyber world. It explored how we balance our needs and expectations of convenience with the possible loss of privacy and protection as well as some potential solutions available to fix or address these increasing vulnerabilities.

The conference keynotes and concurrent sessions provided a wide variety of topics that addressed both the technical and strategic nature of cybersecurity. A new half-day track called Cybersecurity Basics was well-received and covered essentials for novices who wished to learn more about protecting their digital identity.

As Lockdown hits its 20th year, it will receive a new name. Unfortunately, the word “lockdown” has a very different and negative connotation than it once did. To truly reflect the Wisconsin Idea and the educational and collaborative environment that Lockdown has become, we invite you to help us rename Lockdown by sending us your suggestions.

Thank you to all of those who were able to attend this year. We hope to see you and all those who couldn’t make it at next year’s renamed event. We’ll see you in 2020.
