Cyber Florida Programs for Cybersecurity of Critical Infrastructure

April 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The Florida Legislature created the Florida Center for Cybersecurity (Cyber Florida) at the University of South Florida in 2014 to help Florida become a national leader in cybersecurity through education and workforce development, research, and public engagement. In 2022, the Legislature tasked Cyber Florida with conducting a statewide critical infrastructure risk assessment to help protect Florida’s people and property against potential cyber victimization. In 2024, this effort evolved into the Critical Infrastructure Protection Program (CIPP), an enduring program to harden the threat surface of the state. In partnership with Idaho National Laboratory, CIPP provides a valuable online cybersecurity self-assessment tool at no cost to Florida’s public- and private-sector Critical Infrastructure (CI) organizations, as defined by the Department of Homeland Security. The Cyber Security Evaluation Tool, or CSET, is a best-in-class risk assessment tool that allows organizations to measure their cyber defense posture in the most vulnerable areas, providing immediate, actionable intelligence for decision-making. In this seminar, CIPP Senior Program Manager for Cybersecurity Emilio Salabarria will provide an overview of Cyber Florida programs, including additional free resources for public-sector entities, and a detailed discussion on the CIPP offerings, future plans, and the state of cybersecurity in Florida’s critical infrastructure.
