Speaker: Sidd Chopra – We are in a $2 TRILLION war with cybercriminals.
Yet, “nobody seems to realize that we are at war & we have been at war for a long time” admits former Deputy Commanding General of US Army’s Cyber Command, MG (retired) Patricia Frost.
While we may dismiss small attacks, Gen. Paul Nakasone, head of U.S. CyberCom & NSA Director warns “the cumulative effect could be devastating”
You, me, our family and friends, are on the front lines of a technology war with very sophisticated, well funded adversaries. And we are losing.
The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) was created in response to a presidential directive to improve the nation’s cybersecurity. Its Workforce Workgroup published their “Cybersecurity is Everyone’s Job” booklet last year as a guide to organizations.
This session will test a new approach that enlists the arts in a friendly competition.
Bring your instruments, costumes & art supplies, tap into your creative side & have fun helping to save society.
