How (and why) are people breaking into computer systems? What are they doing, and what are the risks?


Computers have become fundamental to our lives: in just 70 years, we have transitioned from having no computers in the world to having more computing devices than people. Some of these devices area almost hidden while enabling and automating many aspects of our lives and our infrastructure, while others we use every day on our desks and in our hands. As we integrate these devices more and more into our lives it presents a new threat to all of us that hackers are looking to take advantage of at a rapidly increasing rate. With our society increasingly dependent on computers and digital data, there is corresponding increase in computer crimes and information theft.

We aren’t going to lessen our dependency on technology so come learn the fundamentals of computer security, and how this relates to you, your company, and your nation in this comprehensive overview of security in the digital era. Alan Daines, Chief Information Security Office for the largest private technology company in the world (Dell), shares his experiences in managing cybersecurity in the enterprise and in his personal life.



Discounted Parking-- $5 after 5!
