GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) – The Milwaukee Brewers vice president of information technology is in Green Bay to share his cybersecurity experience with peers from around the state.

The presentation is part of this year’s Governor’s Cybersecurity Summit, being hosted at the KI Convention Center downtown.

The state’s chief information officer says two of the biggest concerns she hears are phishing — when an attacker pretends to be a real person or business to steal information — and more attacks using artificial intelligence.

“We can obviously use AI for good, but the bad actors are also gonna use AI,” Wisconsin CIO Trina Zanow said, “and so how do you target and think about the different threats that are out there?”

Zanow says the volume of digital threats coming at us is growing.

The goal of the summit is to create connections so people can work together to respond to cyber threats.

A big focus this year is creating a community for women in cybersecurity.

“We get to see thriving and emerging women in the technology and cybersecurity fields, so we’re excited to network, share knowledge, and meet some new people to network,” Zanow said.
