As cyber threats continue to grow, small and medium businesses (SMBs) face a unique set of challenges in improving their defenses. The event will open with a fireside chat featuring Rep. Langevin, who will share his perspective on how best to promote cyber risk mitigation measures for SMBs.

The chat will be followed by a moderated panel of government and industry leaders who will explore how to advance cybersecurity solutions and resiliency in critical infrastructure SMBs.
