WSU Business Issues and Challenges Series: Cyber Security
March 7
Experiential Engineering Building - Room 264
3:30 - 5:00 p.m.

Learn how WSU and the Cyber Security and Forensics Research Group can help you avoid a security breach - starting with an assessment of your current tools and protocol. The question is not if or when your organization will be breached. Most likely, it has already happened.

The real questions are:
  • Is your organization aware of it?
  • Are you capable of detecting and responding to future threats?
