UBC Cybersecurity Summit
October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month
To celebrate Cybersecurity Awareness Month, the UBC Cybersecurity Team will be holding the inaugural UBC Cybersecurity Summit on October 18, 2018. We hope that you can join us for a presentation and discussion on creating better security practices and safeguards to combat cybercrime at home and at work. The day will consist of a speaker presentation and an open house, and you are welcome to attend one or both. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
9:00 am – 11:30 am
Performance Theatre in the Nest (Student Union Building)
Pastries and coffee will be available from 9:00 – 9:30, with opening remarks at 9:30 am.
Don Costello, Directory of Advisory Services, Government of BC
During this session we will discuss the current cybersecurity threats in the public industry as well as share some advice on best practices for cybersecurity. Included in the session will be an overview of the current trends in cybersecurity threats and the general protections that can assist in protecting you from them. This session will also broach the subject of cybersecurity’s greatest threat and a detailed (non-technical) review of how to identify and react to it. Wrapping up the session will identify what services are out there to support organisations within the Province of British Columbia.
