Speaker Series Presentation

Critical Cybersecurity Awareness

Faculty Program Director:  Dr. Andrew Hurd

Cybersecurity is a growing field. If we had the foresight and we integrated computer security the way it was supposed to be inte-grated 40 years ago there would not be a Cybersecurity field today. It would just be what we did as part of our daily routine. Since we did not have this hind sight; we are left to the realm of Cybersecurity and its many mysteries. As a Cybersecurity specialist you must be prepared for problems that does not exist and have the skills to address them. Problem solving skills and critical thinking is essential.  Dr. Hurd’s talk on January 17th will be about cyber awareness and issues people have to address. Is it a password or credit card issue? Is it the sharing of important information or the theft of that information? Live demo to be performed.  An option for remote viewing is available upon registration.
