Bridges to the World Series: Cyber Security - Is It Possible?
Session Time: 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.
With the vast expansion of modern technology in the recent years, cyber attacks have increased dramatically. Cyber security affects our daily lives as we communicate, travel, do business or look for information, but it also affects communities on a larger scale impacting economic vitality and national security. The current administration has declared that the “cyber threat is one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation.”
