POD Security Matters
Murray State University’s Program of Distinction in Cybersecurity and Network Management and Community Financial Services Bank (CFSB) began the annual Patterns of Distinction- Security Matters Conference in 2007 to create the largest technology security conference in the region. The FREE security conference offers small business and security gurus the opportunity to hear from industry individuals about a variety of issues and topics. Patterns of Distinction- Security Matters is a one day event held at Murray State University’s Curris Center. TSM and CFSB hope to make the conference a two-day event as attendance and awareness of the conference continues to grow.
