The "2019 State of California Cybersecurity Education Summit," scheduled for Wednesday, October 9th at the Sheraton Grand in Sacramento, has issued a Call for Presentations.  The Summit is sponsored by California State University, Sacramento (Sac State), California Department of Technology, California Office of Emergency Services (CalOES), California National Guard, and the California Highway Patrol.


The Summit is designed to gather and educate the entire spectrum of California's cybersecurity professionals, whose job functions and expertise range from highly technical to executive.  Attendees will have the opportunity to meet the nation's leading solution providers and discover the latest products and services for enterprise cyber defense.  The Summit will be content-rich with proven strategies and practical tools and templates for transforming the attendee's IT and IS operations.  


According to the Summit's website, the process to accept works is very selective.  There are limited slots available, and the final decision is at the discretion of the State of California Cybersecurity Education Summits hosts and the Executive Advisory Board.  General sessions are determined solely by the Summit Hosts and Advisory Board.  If a proposal warrants a general session, instead of a workshop, the Summit Hosts and Advisory Board will make that determination and inform the submitter.

Proposals will be evaluated on how well they meet the following criteria:


  • Well-defined topic with focused objectives
  • Wide appeal and interest to the target audience
  • Addresses innovative approaches and evidence-based and/or priorities in the field
  • Offers informative materials and tools applicable to communities or organizations and can be transferred into practice.

The deadline for submission is August 9, 2019 by 11:59 PM PDT.  To learn more about the Summit and to submit an abstract (online submission is mandatory), click here.
