Bloomington Campus to Host Cyber Security Forum

cybersecurityevent

Are you curious about cyber security and crimes? Do you want to learn more about how security breaches happen and how you can protect yourself? The Bloomington campus will be hosting an event focused on cyber security on Oct. 30 from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month, which is sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security. Rasmussen College is supporting this cause and building awareness by inviting the public to attend and learn more from two information security experts.

Marc Peterson, a senior analyst in information protection at Target Corp., and Jake Bernier, a senior information security specialist at U.S. Bank, will cover three key topics during this event.

“They will address the general public’s curiosity of how large Target or Home Depot breaches can happen, they will review information security jobs that are available focusing on defending this type of crime, and lastly, they will examine security from the attackers’ perspective,” said Dave Garrison, School of Technology dean.

Is the current state of information security an easy target for hackers? There will be a live demonstration of techniques used to test this.

This is a great opportunity for individuals interested in a career in information security. As the world trends more and more toward big data, the opportunities for malicious hackers increases, and there is a greater need for technology professionals who are skilled in information security and protection.

“There are a lot of people who have had their credit and debit cards changed more than once in the last year,” Garrison said. “We are trying to provide the why … why it’s happening and how it affects them personally.”

Attend this free event to learn how you can protect yourself and your family or to learn more about careers in this fast-paced industry.
