Keynote Speaker

Byron Franz, FBI Special Agent

franzbyron“Protecting Business Against the Cyber Threat in America’s Dairyland”

The United States has been targeted in state-supported cyber attacks from Russia, China, and Iran. These attacks have included military, political, and critical infrastructure targets, but all too often are focused on stealing intellectual property, or “trade secrets” from American industry. These trade secrets form the heart of every business, and estimates place the theft of U.S. trade secrets at hundreds of billions of dollars a year. Special Agent Franz will describe some of the cyber threats facing Wisconsin businesses, suggest mitigations, and reinforce the importance of effective public-private partnerships to protect business secrets and innovation in the Badger State.
