Department of Computer Information Systems host Cyber Summit


Cyber Summit is a one-day professional development event where you can learn from the leading experts in the Cybersecurity field.  Held on the beautiful campus of Appalachian State University in the new Grandview Ballroom overlooking the Mountaineers’ football field, this event will host eight industry leaders and solution providers. Learn from industry leaders such as Veracode, RSM, Extreme Networks, Lowe’s, Microsoft, Duke Energy, and ECRS.  

 The last 18 months have taught us how important it is to protect sensitive data, intellectual property, and information systems; register by Oct. 15 to make a bold move against hackers.

Admission to the Cyber Summit is $50 per person.  This fee includes snacks, lunch, and a social hour after the event.  All proceeds from the Cyber Summit event will be applied directly to the Appalachian State Department of Computer Information Systems (CIS) Advisory Board Scholarship Program.  This scholarship program supports the financial needs of current CIS students.
