Web Conference Overview:

Modern civilization has always been plagued by various classes of criminals. The advent of interconnected devices, allowing for portability of corporate secrets, has given rise to a completely different class of nefarious actors. Cyber criminals range from those bent on stealing your personal information to "cyber terrorists” who have the capability to inflict harm on a much wider scale. Uninhibited by current laws, they are very effective given the speeds of networks, lack of appropriate security controls, and the anonymous nature of the attacker. Making matters worse, the crime may be perpetrated by entities outside of the legal jurisdiction where the unlawful act took place. This web conference will explore the following: understanding how these crimes occur, what can be done to prevent them, and how to safeguard your data.
