"A key element in defending cyber space is collaboration. Whether your role is that of security professional or managing executive, our organizations' cyber security posture depends on the ability to gather and share information, analysis, trends and incidents. Collaboration starts with awareness of who is out there - as a partner or as a threat - and what is their capability. As cyber defenders, we are called to develop the skills and lines of communication needed to provide coordinated assurance and resilience. The 2012 Illinois Cyber Security Forum is the perfect place to discuss challenges, strategies and trail-blazing solutions. I encourage you to join us and to be an active part of the discussion!"

- Rafael Diaz, Chief Information Security Officer, State of Illinois
