Advancing Cybersecurity Risk Management Conference

2020 Advancing Cybersecurity Risk Management Conference

2020 Advancing Cybersecurity Risk Management Conference: What to Expect

Building on the 2018 NIST Cybersecurity Risk Management Conferencethis joint gathering of practitioners, policy makers, and researchers aims to expand the community’s sharing and exploration of best practices. The conference also will enable NIST to receive and discuss stakeholder input on key cybersecurity and privacy risk management topics. The 2020  conference continues the approach of last year’s event and offers the benefits of the annual Cybersecurity Framework Workshops of the past – with the addition of topics and stakeholder groups associated with NIST projects including the Risk Management Framework, Supply Chain Risk Management, and Privacy Framework and Privacy Engineering.

NIST welcomes proposed speaker submissions on all topics related to cybersecurity and privacy risk management. We are particularly interested in selected topics which are listed here. Speaker nominations should include proposed: track, session, speaker (including brief biographical information), session/presentation title, and a brief (250–500 word) description of the presentation. Be sure to provide speaker contact information. Please use the speaker submission template.
