2020 St. Louis Cybersecurity Collaboration Forum

    Collaborating on Stronger Digital Security

    A personal invite from the Governor of  Missouri

    For a field that prides itself on existing behind closed doors, there needs to be a space for like-minded leaders to work together across industry lines to define better security practices.

    The St. Louis Cybersecurity Collaboration Forum is a full day gathering of the region’s principal information security leaders. The program bridges industry sectors by bringing together government, education, healthcare and business, and ensures inclusive perspectives from across C-level security specializations. Featuring provocative keynotes, breakout presentations and interactive boardroom discussions, The Forum addresses crucial industry topics through collaborative idea-sharing.

    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 Forum addresses the region’s most significant concerns.
