Registration Open: Cybersecurity and You – A Free Conference on Fri. April 8, 2016
Registration is now open for the one-day conference, “Cybersecurity and You: Issues in Higher Education and Beyond,” organized by Health Sciences and Human Services Library, Thurgood Marshall Law Library and Center for Information Technology Services at the University of Maryland, Baltimore.
This conference is free and open to the public. It will take place on Fri. April 8, 10 AM – 4 PM at the SMC Campus Center of the University of Maryland, Baltimore. The keynotes and part of the program will be live-streamed at the time of the event, and the video recording will also be made available.
Cybersecurity is an ongoing and complex issue affecting institutions at the local, state and national level. Millions of attempts to breach security occur daily to gain access to clinical, legal, financial and other systems. However, where are the fine lines being drawn between insuring data security and enabling access? And what about individual rights? This conference will bring together public and private sector organizations working to prevent or stop cybersecurity threats to discuss the legal, regulatory, and policy framework of cybersecurity. The conversation will cover academic, government and private entities, as well as the preventative measures that individuals should take to guard their own online presence.
The project has been funded with Federal funds from the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, under Contract No. HHS-N-276-2011-00004-C with the University of Maryland Baltimore. This program was made possible by a grant from the AALL/Bloomberg BNA Continuing Education Grant Program.
