The workshop, part of LVAIC Cyber Security Awareness Month programming throughout the month of October, includes a panel discussion with experts from across the cybersecurity industry, who will answer questions on handling security breaches, how to prevent cybercrime, trends in the industry, avoiding attacks, and more.

Presenters and panelists will include representatives from the US Department of Homeland Security, Forsyte IT Solutions, Integra One, Netizen, and Fornetix.

“Cybersecurity issues continue to grow and are at the forefront of many of the tools and services we use to live and structure our lives, “ said Colin Foley, interim chief information security officer at Lehigh. “We all should focus on protecting ourselves, our families, and the organizations in which we belong by raising our awareness of these important issues.”

The event is free and open to all members of the Lehigh community. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP at https://lvaic.org/event/lvaic-cyber-security-awareness-month-event.
