The Week

 

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts will host its first Cybersecurity Week from October 15th through October 18th. Held during National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, the goal of Massachusetts Cybersecurity Week is to highlight the robust Massachusetts cybersecurity ecosystem that exists in our state. That ecosystem, which includes educational institutions, businesses, R&D centers, policy leaders, investors, and technology groups, makes Massachusetts a national leader and enables the Commonwealth's citizens and economy to thrive in the face of growing threats.

Events and activities will take place across Massachusetts that will bring people together to:Official proclamation declaring October 15-18, Massachusetts Cybersecurity Week

  1. Showcase the talent, innovation, strength and opportunity of our cybersecurity economy.
  2. Foster collaboration between business, vendors, policymakers, and educators to ensure this ecosystem continues to advance and grow.
  3. Educate citizens, business leaders, and investors on key cybersecurity issues and how together we can combat the threat.
