Clemson to Host Cybersecurity Summit

Clemson University’s Center for Corporate Learning will host the Clemson University Cybersecurity Summit to help executives to identify their current threat landscape and allow them to take steps to increase security and create roadmaps to improve protection of their innovation capital.

The summit will be Friday, Dec. 14, at Clemson at the Falls in Greenville.

“There is urgency for good cyberinfrastructure in South Carolina” said Greg Pickett, associate dean for Clemson at the Falls. “This summit is another key example of our growing initiatives and opportunities for the greater business community.”

Adam Anderson, CEO of Palmetto Software Group, the summit sponsor and Clemson's entrepreneur in residence for the new MBA in Entrepreneurship and Innovation, said, “Our goal for this summit is to raise the priority of security initiatives for CIOs in South Carolina and to provide a forum for the thought leaders in the industry.”

The summit will feature Peter Allor, security strategist for IBM X-Force, who will discuss the current threat landscape through an interactive session. Kevin McKenzie, executive director of information security and privacy at Clemson, will cover security awareness and upcoming security trends.

“This summit is intended to launch an iterative and continual conversation about the importance of cybersecurity,” McKenzie said. “A common thread among organizations is the need to protect their information technology assets. Through collectively gathering those who have the influence to be champions of cybersecurity within their respective companies, this summit will result in an increased awareness and priority for cybersecurity.”

The Clemson University Cybersecurity Summit will be from 1 to 5 p.m. at Clemson at the Falls, 55 E. Camperdown Way, Greenville. It will be followed by a private social networking hour. For complete details, visit
