The Salt Lake Chamber is proud to announce the launch of the Cybersecurity Leadership Council. The Council will be made up of public and private professionals with the goal of educating the business community on the shared responsibility of cybersecurity.

Today’s criminals have taken to the digital world to undermine computer networks and critical infrastructure, violating the privacy of internet users and stealing proprietary information from small and large businesses alike. As Utah strives to mitigate this cyber risk, the Cybersecurity Leadership Council will undoubtedly become an invaluable tool and powerful avenue for collaboration and influence.

“One of the biggest threats to Utah business that often goes unmentioned: cyber attacks,” said Lane Beattie, president and CEO of the Salt Lake Chamber. "No matter the size of the business or organization, cyber attacks hurt. The financial burden, the cost of business disruption, and the loss of consumer trust are bad for any business. That’s why as Utah’s ‘voice of business’ the Salt Lake Chamber is making it a priority to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity for businesses of all types and sizes.”

The Salt Lake Chamber’s cybersecurity education and awareness programming includes Cybersecurity Awareness Month, Cybersecurity Business Roundtable Series and the 2018 Cybersecurity Conference.
