The Chamber Cybersecurity Council, in collaboration with the National Security Innovation Council and the National Security Collaboration Center (NSCC) at UTSA, hosted a meeting bringing together local cybersecurity and technology leaders and defense and federal government agencies.
The 90-minute meeting featured some of San Antonio’s unique offerings few communities can boast. This included exploration of the NSCC, Port San Antonio, the Cybersecurity Manufacturing Innovation Institute at UTSA, and the Southwest Research Institute. We also highlighted JBSA’s efforts with 5G and electromagnetic resiliency, Velocity Texas, and the robust biomedical research industry in the city.
To finish, the Cybersecurity Council emphasized the amazing work by all of the featured organizations who are working together to make San Antonio a uniquely collaborative cybersecurity community. This aspect of our local cyber ecosystem is driven by the public-private collaboration between the Chamber and the City of San Antonio – Cybersecurity San Antonio – which is hosted by our Cybersecurity Council and continues to build a network of teams across our region, advancing and leading the industry in the United States.
