Introduction

“Information Security” has been an issue for a relatively small number of technologists for the past 30 years. However, over the past couple of years, there has been a major increase in interest. Even the media have picked up the “buzz.”

  • An entire nation’s economy is shut down through cyber intrusion
  • Identity fraud became front page news
  • Major industry-specific legislation is introduced to guard citizen’s privacy
  • Practitioners apply 40-year-old technology to today’s networks

Current conversations on network security, information assurance, and privacy have moved out of the IT machine room and into the boardroom, congressional committee and the family dinner table.

Join us at the CERIAS Symposium for an examination of how researchers from academia and industry’s innovators are addressing tomorrow infosec needs.
