MURFREESBORO — Organizers of MTSU’s 2015 Middle Tennessee Cyber Summit, set Tuesday, May 5, want to help public and private-sector operations protect their operations from online attackers.
The theme of the summit, presented by MTSU’s Forensic Institute for Research and Education, is “Safeguarding Identities and Emerging Threats.” The 8 a.m.-5 p.m. event in the second-floor ballroom of MTSU’s Student Union is open to the public at no charge.
Attendees can register and check in at 7:30 a.m. May 5 in the Student Union ballroom. A searchable campus map of MTSU, complete with parking details, is available at http://tinyurl.com/MTSUParking14-15.
Organizers say this year’s Cyber Summit should be of particular interest to information technology professionals in federal, state and local government agencies, along with K-12 and higher education, financial services, utilities, business and law enforcement agencies.
The summit will feature discussions on preventing and/or alleviating cyberthreats to critical infrastructure, “phishing” schemes, risk management and the facts of security on cloud-based storage.
Speakers will include representatives from:
· the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
· the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Cyber Incident Analysis Division.
· digital forensics company Stroz Friedberg.
· the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
· Presidio security management company.
· the nonprofit Center for Internet Security.
· the Nashville-headquartered financial, staffing and technology services firm LBMC.
