Cybersecurity Forward 2021

Technology & Cybersecurity Virtual Webinar Series
Thank you for attending.

Wisconsin’s official state motto “Forward” reflects its continuous drive to be a national leader. Cybersecurity Forward shares this drive by making UW‍–‍Madison, the larger community, and all attendees leaders in cybersecurity. Let’s keep moving forward to help our colleagues, family and friends become more cyber secure! 

Due to COVID-19 travel restrictions and the concern for everyone’s health and safety, the Cybersecurity Forward 2021 Conference was a virtual webinar series. The webinar series consisted of hour-long weekly presentations every Wednesday from 12:00pm – 1:00pm CST from July through September.
