Future Focus: Opening Remarks by Governor Ige - Paubox

I attended the 3rd Annual Future Focus Conference yesterday at the Hawaii Convention Center. Its focus this year was on Cybersecurity, Astronomy, and Space Exploration.

After a welcome by emcee Donalyn Dela Cruz, Governor David Ige opened the conference with a speech.

Here are my takeaways from Governor Ige’s opening remarks at Future Focus:

  • He brought a personal touch to the recent Equifax breach and its impact on his family.
  • The State of Hawaii has a CISO newly hired and created position: Vince Hoang.
  • “We do know the state networks are under thousands and thousands of attacks every second.”
  • Future Focus is one of his favorite conferences.
