WHO IS YOUR CYBER TEAM? You’re wrong if you think it is just the ‘IT guys.’ Cybersecurity involves your bank, your accountant, your attorney, your insurance agent, public relations activities, technology experts, and last but not least – you! Leadership is the key to cybersecurity and you don’t have to be technical to be a leader! You are already doing it by owning and managing your business. Come to the WWBC presentation to learn key terms and pick up some useful tools to lead your business in managing its cyber risks. This will be fun and interactive! Prepare to laugh! My cybersecurity talks aren’t all statistics and scary facts! My talks are funny, empowering, and will give you tools to take back to your office.

Made Safe in Wyoming was co-founded by Laura Baker, Patrick Wolfinbarger, and James Drever in June of 2017, but affiliated with CyberUSA in March of 2018 becoming CyberWyoming. Since then, CyberWyoming has founded the Wyoming Cybersecurity Competition for Small Business, become an ISAO (Information Sharing and Analysis Organization), is a registered Department of Labor Apprenticeship Office for the Cybersecurity Technician Apprenticeship, become a C-Market Champion (C for Cybersecurity), and started an Information Systems Security Association professional development chapter in Wyoming. CyberWyoming’s vision is to build a community of non-technical leaders and mentors in Wyoming to carry forward cybersecurity awareness and increase business resilience in Wyoming. Laura graduated from the University of Wyoming with her B.S. in Marketing, continued on with her Masters in Business Administration from Texas Tech University, and later earned her Associates in Risk Management. She has worked with East coast Fortune 1000 companies to create risk management solutions, translated technological needs of mental health professionals for the largest community mental health center in the nation, created CD and website sales products for international companies, developed juvenile probation products with county agencies, and project managed hardware implementations for hospitals, clinics, and rural small businesses. She most often uses her risk management background to translate technical speak to business risks, but also pulls from the psychology of language and decision making.
