Lockdown 2019

Technology & Cybersecurity Conference

Wednesday, July 17, 2019 | Monona Terrace Convention Center, Madison WI

This is Lockdown

Join other cybersecurity and information technology professionals to learn and collaborate on cutting edge topics impacting the industry. Living in a Cyber World is the conference theme this year. It will address the challenges we face as more devices make up our cyber world. How do we balance our need and expectation of convenience with the possible loss of privacy and protection? What are possible solutions to fix or address these increasing vulnerabilities?

The conference keynotes and concurrent sessions will provide a wide variety of topics that address both the technical and strategic nature of cybersecurity. A new half-day track called Cybersecurity Basics will cover essentials for novices who wish to learn more about protecting their digital identity.
