Upcoming Events

The C³ Voluntary Program directly engages organizations across the Nation to embrace a more sustained, proactive approach towards strengthening critical infrastructure cybersecurity. C³ Voluntary Program events are forums for industry, Federal, State, local, tribal, and territorial government partners, and other organizations of all sizes to discuss evolving cyber risk management needs and work together to forge solutions.

In the first year of engagement, the program hosted regional meetings focused on general outreach and awareness about the Cybersecurity Framework and available C³ Voluntary Program and community resources. Stay tuned for more details about meetings in 2015.

C³ Voluntary Program Webinar Series

The C³ Voluntary Program is launching a Webinar Series in 2015. The primary goal of the Webinar Series is to encourage those unfamiliar with the program to better understand and interact with our centralized repository of cyber risk management practices, tools, and procedures. The first webinar will provide an overview of the C³ Voluntary Program and upcoming program activities, while future webinars will feature topics such as incorporating threat information into Framework use and communicating about cybersecurity with the C-suite.
