Who is Keeping Your Information Secure? And How?
Thursday, November 6, 2014
2:00 - 3:30 p.m.
Bost Theater

Trey Breckenridge, director of the High Performance Computing Collaboratory;
Dave Dampier, director of the Distributed Analytics and Security Institute;
Tom Morris, assistant director of DASI; and Tommy Ritter, MSU's security
and compliance officer make-up the panel of information security experts
who will speak to the most critical issues and practices of information security today.
Information is an essential resource for the growth and success of every institution.
In today's information-driven economy, keeping your data secure is the
responsibility of every employee in your operation. From guarding against social
engineering attacks to creating an effective incident response plan, everyone in
your organization has to take part in keeping your information secure.

A recent study by the Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA)
cited human error as the most common cause of information security breaches,
with some 80 percent of respondents believing this human error was caused by
a lack of security knowledge, training, or failure to follow security

This session provides information security awareness and cybersecurity
awareness that can significantly reduce not only the odds of your college or
department experiencing a serious information security breach, but can also
help minimize negative impact should a breach occur.
