Today, the Governor's Conference on CyberSecurity was held in Jefferson City. Governor Jay Nixon, Commissioner Doug Nelson, CIO Rich Kliethermes, and CISO Mike Roling kicked off the event. Click here to watch a video of Commissioner Nelson's and Governor Nixon's opening remarks from this morning. 

The summit was funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for statewide cybersecurity preparedness programs. The summit focused on themes of information sharing and awareness, training, workforce development, hardening of critical infrastructure discussion and incident response. 

This summit is in tandem with the newly formed Cyber Security Task force that has been at work this summer. See the video below of CISO Mike Roling discussing this task force's role and plan of action.
