Business executives can attend an upcoming cybersecurity summit to learn of the current threats to their information and steps that can increase security.

The goal is to raise the priority of security initiatives for chief information officers in South Carolina and to provide a forum for the thought leaders in the industry, said Adam Anderson, the Palmetto Software Group CEO and the summit sponsor, in a news release.

Clemson University’s Center for Corporate Learning will host the Clemson University Cybersecurity Summit Dec. 14 from 1 to 5 p.m. at Clemson at the Falls, 55 E. Camperdown Way, Greenville.

“There is urgency for good cyberinfrastructure in South Carolina” said Greg Pickett, associate dean for Clemson at the Falls, in a news release. “This summit is another key example of our growing initiatives and opportunities for the greater business community.”

The summit will feature Peter Allor, security strategist for IBM X-Force, who will discuss the current threat landscape through an interactive session. Kevin McKenzie, executive director of information security and privacy at Clemson, will cover security awareness and upcoming security trends.
