New Program Profile - Information Security Minor
Information security is the study of the dynamic interaction between the nature of cyber threats to the security, integrity and availability of information and the diverse efforts that are made to counter them. The information security minor gives students a multidisciplinary perspective on the sources of, and reasons for, cyber threats and the strategies undertaken to counter them, including the role of computers and computing as well as that of laws, regulations and information storage standards and practices. Students are also introduced to successes and failures in protecting information against cyber attack through the detailed analysis of real-world case studies as well to the broader social, economic and security context in which cyber threats arise. The information security minor requires 16 hours of academic credit.  For more information, contact Karlene Foster at foster.24@osu.eduMinor sheet.

Talking Change - An Evening with Terry Crews
There are motivational speakers, and then there are "motivational do-ers." Terry Crews is the latter.  This bona fide powerhouse-actor, activist, best-selling author, former athlete, and beyond has inspired countless individuals to "do something about it."  "It" can mean many different things to many different people: a difficult career choice, a seemingly unattainable goal, an addiction, an abusive relationship, or just life in general. Crews speaks from his experience, something he encourages everyone to do, but in the process he is able to relate to universal stories of struggle.
Brought to you by OUAB.  Read more.
