Cybersecurity Forward

Technology & Cybersecurity Virtual Webinar Series

Wednesdays at noon, through July 27, 2022

Malicious actors across the globe are working to adapt and evolve their cybersecurity attack tactics. IT professionals cannot stand still—we too must continuously adapt and evolve. And move forward.UW–Madison’s Cybersecurity Forward is here to help you grow as an IT and cybersecurity professional. Come and learn the essentials, explore pertinent tools and case studies, and discover ways to hone your leadership skills. Engage with professionals from UW System, higher education, government, and the private sector. Take your knowledge back with you and apply it in ways that will keep us all moving forward—at UW–Madison, at our peer higher ed institutions, and in the K-12 schools in our communities.
