Experts Slated for Cyber Security Symposium
Businesses, organizations and individuals are dependent upon computers and computer networks to perform critical work in an ever-increasing technology-driven economy. As this dependency grows, threats from mischievous pranksters, criminals who steal valuable and sensitive information and nations engaged in espionage continue to increase.
UNC Charlotte is a leader in education and research that addresses the many vulnerabilities in cyberspace. The annual Cyber Security Symposium is an opportunity for attendees to become more aware about important topics and possible solutions in the field. This year’s event is scheduled from 8:15 AM to 5:00 PM, Wednesday, Oct. 5, at UNC Charlotte. Early registration discounts are available online.
For 17 years, this annual symposium, co-hosted by the College of Computing and Informatics and Charlotte Research Institute at UNC Charlotte, has brought national leaders to share their knowledge and leadership. Bank of America is the title sponsor of the 2016 symposium.
