MIS Alliance and the Hub @ Stetson Hall will co-host a conference in recognition of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Oct. 23 at Stetson Hall, 6 South Main St., Randolph.
Topics will include in-depth discussions of the current cybersecurity landscape, offering policies and procedures, tips and tricks, technologies and software to address various threats and risks to the internet.
Keynote speakers tentatively scheduled include Norfolk County Sheriff’s Cyber Crime office, an instructor from a technology law clinic, a privacy law attorney and several cybersecurity-centric vendors.
MIS Alliance Director of Engineering Christopher Kimball also will be on hand. Kimball has an extensive background and expertise in cybersecurity and most recently created the new Managed Cybersecurity program for MIS Alliance.
By the end of the conference, attendees will have a greater understanding of current cyber-landscape risk and threats to IT infrastructure, data and finances; regulations, as well as cybersecurity’s role and responsibilities in the workplace; examples of cyber-attacks and tactics, including phishing, social engineering, malware and ransomware; how to mitigate risk, as with policies, processes, incident response plans, training, hardware, software and services; and how to foster a culture that values and stresses data security and privacy.
This is the second cybersecurity awareness conference held by MIS Alliance this year. The previous conference, co-hosted with Boston College High School, assembled a team of experts and leaders in the cybersecurity field specifically for secondary schools and students’ privacy.
