Keynote Speaker – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio


Senator Rubio will present a compelling overview of the national risks associated with cyber breaches from other nation states. As Chair of the U.S. Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, Acting Chair of the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee, and Committee member of the Foreign Relations and the Commerce Science and Transportation Committees, he is in a unique position to understand and explain security risks that need to be closely overseen.

Featuring – Katherine “Katie” Arrington

As the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) to the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Ms. Arrington is leading efforts that will help to ensure a robust Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM), establish defense industrial base security and resilience, and create a common basis in cybersecurity standards. The Department of Defense is in the process of implementing the new Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) standards and Ms. Arrington will give attendees an update on the timelines, the certification process, and the impact to industry.

2020 Cyber Forum Program

The Cybersecurity Forum 2020, originally scheduled as “in-person” breakout sessions at the Annual Workers’ Compensation Educational Conference sponsored by the Workers’ Compensation Institute (WCI) has been rescheduled for September 16–17, 2020. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the annual WC Conference was postponed until 2021. However, because of the importance and urgency of the Cybersecurity sessions, WCI has elected to present them virtually this year. A follow up to these initial sessions will be held at the 2021 Educational Conference.

Why Attend?

Cyber attacks and data breaches are on the rise. This affects us as individuals, our companies, and is a serious national security threat to our country. Whether you are seeking a “best practices” approach to providing cybersecurity or will be required to meet the new federally mandated standards that for some become effective in 2020, this series of educational offerings provides a current model for responding to real cybersecurity risks that involve all aspects of our society.

What you will learn

Day One

  • How to protect your data – Individuals and Companies
  • Who are the “bad guys”?
  • How to recognize and respond to a cyber breach
  • Witness a Simulated Cyber Breach
  • Preventative action steps for protection
  • Senator Marco Rubio’s keynote address about the importance of cybersecurity nationally and internationally
  • Are we prepared for a cyber attack on our critical infrastructures (energy, transportation, port access, communications, health services, utilities, information technology, and defense systems) and what will Florida look like if there is a breach resulting in a shutdown in whole or in part?

Day Two

  • These sessions will inform all companies in the defense supply chain of the U.S. Department of Defense’s Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification Program (CMMC) that is expected to be in effect for some in 2020.
  • Educational sessions will be presented on compliance with CMMC standards by Board Members and DoD staff who actually authored these new standards.
  • The Keynote Address for this day’s sessions will be made by Katherine “Katie” Arrington, the Chief Information Officer (CISO) to the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, in regards to the DoD’s expectations for CMMC.

Who Should Attend?

Some estimate that in excess of 300,000 companies/individuals will qualify as being subject to the mandatory CMMC Standards required by the Department of Defense. Understanding your possible newly defined obligations is essential for good business planning and will be important for future planning as these new standards are expanded to other Federal agency requirements. Those that should attend include:

  • Small and mid-sized Florida Defense Contractors as defined by CMMC
  • Companies in the Defense Industrial Base as defined by CMMC
  • IT Professionals and Risk Managers responsible for the development of company processes in compliance with CMMC or best practices
  • Safety Professionals in regards to ensuring total company compliance related to cybersecurity
  • PEOs and Temporary Staffing Companies providing services to companies in the DoD supply chain
  • Any Individual or Company providing services or products to companies within the defense supply chain
  • Prime Contractors seeking resiliency through ensuring that supply chain providers of services/products have the appropriate cybersecurity certifications
  • Attorneys including Company Staff Attorneys providing advice on cybersecurity standards and potential liability for first and third party liabilities
  • HR Professionals dealing with confidential or protected data
  • Claims Adjusters receiving certain types of confidential or unclassified protected data as a part of their job functions
  • Insurance Carriers/Self-Insureds/Third Party Administrators (Liability coverages for risks related to cyber breaches) and the need for data protection including information received in underwriting activities
  • Companies and Individuals seeking information on “best practices” for cybersecurity
  • Company Managers overseeing the conduct of employees for the purpose of protecting data (cybersecurity risks are the concerns of the entire company not just a few)
  • Companies desiring to do business planning for Florida operations and the overall risks of a cyber breach (or for that matter any catastrophic event) on the state’s critical infrastructures
