Description

The Evolution of Cyber Security, Cal Poly Pomona's 15th Annual Cyber Security and Awareness Fair

We started the Cyber Security and Awareness Fair with a simple vision of safe, secure technology. As this event has evolved, we now find ourselves at the 15-year milestone! With this opportunity, we want to highlight the humble beginnings of the Cyber Security profession by taking time to look back at some of the forefathers in Cyber Security such as John von Neumann who in 1966 published his Theory of self-reproducing automata. Or, for some of us, it was learning about Social Engineering in the movie War Games when students cleverly knew where the hand written password list was kept so they could change grades. Today, the Cyber Security landscape has grown in to an industry filled phishing schemes, crypto jacking, ransomware, insecure IoT, and cloud cyber security threats. At its core, the fundamental of teaching Cyber Security awareness to protect user’s remains the same as when began.

Join us on Oct 24th, 2019 at Cal Poly Pomona where we journey though the history of Cyber Security teaching you the ability to protect yourself with hands-on Cyber Security demonstrations, a Research Poster Contest with $1000 in prizes, keynote sessions from industry experts, and vendor displays informing you of the current products to enhance your cyber security footprint. Look forward to an exciting day filled with prizes, giveaway items while supplies last, and knowledge!
