Join us on Tuesday, May 26 for our monthly chapter meeting with a special guest speaker:  

The Next Big Thing In Cyber Security
By Dean Lane

We will be hosting the meeting virtually:

Conference Call Information:

2019 had many headlines covering the latest data breach, ransomware attack, or advanced hacking exploit. Unfortunately, those headlines are nothing out of the ordinary anymore – they represent our new status quo. Cyber Security, or any technical field, is ever evolving and will change in coming years; but for now, the answer for the next big thing is Cyber Intelligence. Come to this interactive session / discussion to learn the concepts of how to minimize security blind spots. This session will introduce the basic concepts of Cyber Intelligence as an enhanced method of Cyber Security. We will discuss Cyber Intelligence as an interdisciplinary look at Cyber Security and Intelligence that considers not only software, hardware, and fire walls, but also the human side of the equation. There will always be hackers and state sponsored attacks. Since it is a war that never ends we must ensure that we win every battle by staying ahead of the opposition.
