Over 115 participants gathered at the Hewlett Packard Campus in Garden City, Idaho on November 13, 2014 for the Idaho Cyber Security Interdependencies Workshop hosted by the Idaho Bureau of Homeland Security (IBHS) with assistance from the Pacific NorthWest Economic Region (PNWER) Center for Regional Disaster Resilience (CRDR). The one day workshop provided information on current Cyber threats, and best practices utilized to develop organizational Cyber Security plans. Guest speakers, panel discussions, and round table facilitated conversations contributed to a very successful workshop.
The event was developed over the course of four months through a series of conference calls and meetings. The planning team included local public and private sector organizations, including: Idaho National Laboratory (INL), MK Hamilton & Associates, Office of the Idaho State Controller, Office of the Idaho Chief Information Officer, Idaho Bureau of Homeland Security, Petso Financial Consultants LLC, University of Idaho, Hewlett Packard, Idaho State Police, Zions Bank, Idaho Transportation Department, and St. Luke’s Health System.
This workshop was the first in a three year initiative to develop a public/private sector partnership for resilience in the state of Idaho. In 2015 IBHS and PNWER CRDR will host a table top exercise to help identify interdependencies and gaps in existing partnerships. Following that, the team will develop a Action Plan for the development of an Idaho Public/Private Sector Resilience Partnership.
