Work in the public sector differs from that in the private sector in ways that on the one hand present challenges unique to public sector work but also sometimes produce unexpected rewards also unique to public sector work.  Mr. Coffing will share some of his experiences gained over the last eighteen months leading cybersecurity for the nation's third largest municipality as well as over the course of a 25+ year career in information technology and cyber security.
