The 2022 Michigan Cyber Summit is back as an in-person event this year and will take place on Thursday, Oct. 27, at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi.

As the 11th annual Michigan Cyber Summit, it will bring together experts from across the country to discuss the latest cybersecurity trends impacting business, education, information technology, economic development, law enforcement, and personal safety.

The summit is open to the public and will feature information for individuals, students, families, business professionals, educators, law enforcement, and government officials.

“We are tremendously excited to bring the Michigan Cyber Summit back in-person,” says Laura Clark, Michigan chief information officer for the Michigan Department of Technology, Management, and Budget (DTMB).

“The event provides attendees the opportunity to hear respected speakers from the public and private sectors on how to navigate the vast world of cybersecurity. It is also a great incubator of relationships, helping to forge the partnerships that keep Michiganders safe from cyber threats of all varieties.”

The event will feature internationally recognized keynote speakers and panelists, as well as experts from across the country to lead breakout sessions on a variety of industry topics.

Michigan is recognized as a national leader in cybersecurity, and the Michigan Cyber Summit serves as a platform for regional, national, and international thought leadership.

The final round of the Governor’s High School Cyber Challenge will be held onsite during the morning, with the announcement of the first, second, and third place teams to follow.

The challenge is designed to prepare the next generation of cyber professionals and tests Michigan high school students’ skills in information technology, computer science, and cybersecurity in a two-round statewide competition.
