Webinar: Boardroom Implications Regarding Cybersecurity & Cyber Liability Insurance
May 20 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Cyber security has risen to the top of the list of risks faced by companies and organizations of all sizes in both the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors. No one is immune and protecting against cyber security risks has taken a critical place as one of the board’s most crucial responsibilities. Without board oversight and a corresponding risk management protocol, organizations could face disruptive or catastrophic losses that threaten their very existence. This webinar will shed the light on this situation and will review suggestions for risk management including a review of Cyber Liability Insurance.

Webinar: Social Media and Law Enforcement
May 26 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

While the use of technology grows as both a resource for law enforcement to educate and as an outreach tool, it is also a source for criminals to obtain private information through open sources such as Facebook®, Twitter™, and blogs. Terrorist groups are using social media to reach multinational audiences in order to spread their ideology, target disenfranchised youth, and encourage domestic terrorism.

Learn about the challenges and the ways local, county, and state law enforcement have used social media as an education and crime fighting tool to combat terrorism in their communities.

Webinar: Introduction to Cybersecurity: Mobile & Wireless Security
May 27 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Mobile devices are uniquely susceptible to security risks since they are always on and accessible. They also provide several means of communication and connectivity through text and multimedia messaging, voice, cellular networks, and wireless connectivity using Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections.
Wireless networks and mobile devices work together. All computer networks are designed to allow various points within the network to communicate with each other and share information. A network can be as simple as one or two computers with printers, scanners or other devices or as complex as the Internet with millions of connected devices.

This webinar will examine mobile security and wireless network security threats. Attendees of the webinar will also learn how to successfully mitigate these threats. This webinar is the seventh in a series of eight webinars discussing the fundamentals of cybersecurity (Cybersecurity 101).

Presenter: Derek Smith

Derek Smith is responsible for the development and coordination of cyber security initiatives at the National Cybersecurity Institute. Formerly, he has worked for a number of IT companies including Computer Sciences Corporation and Booz Allen Hamilton.
