WiscNet Community Conversations: Listening Sessions on Security at Brown County Library August 1, 2019
WiscNet staff will be on the road through September at various locations in Wisconsin holding listening sessions on the topic of security. At each stop, a local WiscNet member will share what security means and looks like in their organization, where they’re at on their security journey, what problems they’re trying to solve, and what they still need to learn. This is your chance to hear from each other, to share what’s going on in your own worlds, and connect face-to-face with others in your community.
WiscNet staff will be at the Brown County Library on Thursday, August 1, 2019.
