Appalachian State Cyber Summit

Event Background

Appalachian State University's Cyber Summit is our annual one-day professional development event where attendees will learn from the leading experts in the cybersecurity field. Held on Appalachian's campus in the new Grandview Ballroom at Kidd Brewer Stadium, attendees will network with industry specialists, business leaders and develop partnerships with the Department of Computer Information Systems and its rising star students. All Proceeds from the event fund student scholarships in the Department of Computer Information Systems. 

In only its second year, the Appalachian State Cyber Summit has quickly become one of the preeminent cyber security events in the tri-state area of North Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. In its first year, the Summit attracted a mix of speakers from leading security software providers, consultancies, and industry practitioners. Despite COVID mandates, the 2021 Cyber Summit drew over 130 attendees. Funds raised from the 2021 event were used to provide an unprecedented level of scholarships to Appalachian State CIS students for the 2022-2023 academic year. All WCOB students can attend for free but must register in advance.
