This cybersecurity-focused session will take place directly before the CIRA Meet-up about AI – you are invited to attend both events. For the cybersecurity event, we are bringing together representatives from CIRA and a prominent local tech entrepreneur to discuss how today's threat landscape impacts organizations and how to protect websites, applications, and users.

This free event is a great chance to hear some interesting speakers, meet with your peers and enjoy some cocktails in an informal setting.
