Cybersecurity and You: Issues in Higher Education and Beyond

Friday April 8, 2016
University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) - SMC Campus Center
Ballrooms A & B (All programs 'except' Programs on Track B)
Room 349 (Programs on Track B*)

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. This conference is organized by the Health Sciences and Human Services Library and the Center for Information Technology Services of the University of Maryland, Baltimore and the Law Library Association of Maryland, and is free and open to the public.
