Fall 2007 Cyber Security Symposium
The rapid deployment of advanced communication and information technology in our society has enabled increased interdependencies among diverse business groups, government agencies, and other entities.
The spread of such technologies, and the consequential reliance on it, require the commitment of all participants to know, understand and take action to minimize the threats that compromise the facility, the integrity of data in the network, and the privacy rights of all persons.
This symposim will focus on the issues and solutions as seen by the most prominent researchers and practitioners in the field of information security.
