Oregon Cyber Resilience Summit 2021


Presentation Recordings


This preeminent cyber resilience event takes a "whole community" approach, bringing together the private and public sectors, owners and operators, cybersecurity experts, students, and community members to network and train together to defend our infrastructure from ever-evolving cyber threats. The event is hosted by the University of Oregon and the Technology Association of Oregon (TAO) in partnership with the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Oregon TITAN Fusion Center (OTFC), as part of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month .

About the Summit

Cyber threats represent some of the most significant challenges to national security, our economic systems, and our basic way of life. Cyber risks affect all sectors: critical infrastructure, power and energy, banking, higher education, and many more. The interconnectedness of all sectors of our community causes cyber incidents in one area to affect the whole community. Consequently, to successfully defend our way of life, it is paramount that we work together to defend our cyber world.

Following up on our Capture the Flag event from 2020, this year we are introducing the Oregon Cyber Cup Challenge.
