Cyber Security Workshop: Cyber Security Tools of the Trade

March 21, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Location: Plaut Room

The Cyber Security Seminar was developed to promote internet security awareness for the larger internet user community. To date the program has been delivered in more than a dozen well attended 90 minute cyber security workshops to enthusiastic participants across Fairfield County. It consists of three unique 90 minute presentations: Cyber Security Workshop, a primer on internet security awareness, safe practices and techniques; Cyber Security Tools of the Trade, explores and explains many of the current techologies depicted in spy movies and in the real world; and the timely, High Profile Security Breaches & Data Losses, chronicling the Equifax, Target, Sony, and US Govt Office of Personnel Management data breaches. This seminar is by design non-technical and geared for anyone with an interest in protecting their personal information – no prior background is needed.

Participants discover how controlling access to facilities, systems, and information using facial and voice recognition, fingerprint readers, iris and retinal scanners, and hand geometry readers often seen in spy films and TV actually work. They also review basic data security concepts and strategies to protect personal information from misuse and how cryptography and steganography are used to protect (and hide) sensitive information.

PLEASE NOTE: This workshop is a three-part series occurring on March 14, March 21, and March 28. Please register separately for each individual date.

The registration limit for part one of this three-part workshop has been met. Join the wait list>>
