Join us as we deconstruct how cyber security impacts today’s fastest growing industries, as well as taking a deep-dive into the programs and startups making the unmanned systems industry thrive in New York State.

Details: As more machines come online via the cloud, deep learning technologies, autonomous infrastructure, and the growth of hackers attacking America’s infrastructure has become increasingly a menacing problem. Chuck Brooks, the Principal Market Growth Strategist for General Dynamics Mission Systems for Cybersecurity and Emerging Technologies, has been on the front lines of cybersecurity in the highest levels of government for decades. Brooks will share his observations as well as his recommendations for the industry of unmanned systems. In addition, we will learn how New York State is taking a leading role in creating a vibrant ecosystem through ground breaking public/private partnerships like the Global Cyber Center of CyberNYC and GENIUS NY to foster innovation between the State and the private sector.
