2020 Portland Cybersecurity Collaboration Forum

    Building New Bridges

    When it comes to information security, Portland is one of the fastest growing communities on the west coast. The Cybersecurity Collaboration Forum is a space where Portland’s security leaders can come together to build new relationships that further improve security.

    Featuring provocative keynotes, breakout best practice sessions, and interactive roundtable discussions, The Forum brings together the technology, privacy, and security leaders who have enabled Portland to emerge as a center of business and technology excellence.

    Join us on June 9, 2020 at the Hyatt Hotel to discuss common challenges and share best practices.

    The Leadership Board represents the region’s most prominent organizations and thought leadership. Board members recommend and vet topics, speakers and industry partners, ensuring each Exchange addresses the region’s most significant concerns.
