April 20 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Please join IEEE Iowa-Illinois Section and IEEE Iowa-Illinois Computer Society hosted virtual presentation and virtual dinner on Wednesday, April 20, 2022, at 5:30 pm. Cyberspace has been very much part of our well-being. For the most part, cyberspace, with its endless opportunities, has a very positive effect on people’s lives. Cybersecurity deals with protection of data such as Personally Identifiable Information (PII), Protected Health Information (PHI), intellectual property, industry and government information from unauthorized disclosure and accidental destruction. With increased global connectivity, use of cloud services, and widespread deployment of Internet of Things (IoT), the risk of potentially successful cyber attacks is ever increasing. Small businesses are also at greater risk of cybercrimes. In this presentation, we review some of the significant risks faced in cyberspace as exemplified by real-life stories and provide a few viewpoints on making cybersecurity a priority for everyone. The presentation will be followed by open discussions and a virtual dinner. (IEEE membership is not required to attend the event.) Speaker(s): Dr. Binto George, Agenda: 5:30pm – 6:15pm Presentation, Q&A 6:15pm – 7:00pm Discussion/Virtual Dinner Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/307679
