The HU CERC (aka ‘HU Business Cyber Center’) is here to help you acquire relevent skills in CyberSecurity. Join us on January 22nd from 12pm – 1:30pm in room #419 to discuss your interests and brainstorm on how the center can best deliver value. This is great opportunity to learn more about cyber, make contacts and plan upcoming MeetUps. Refreshments will be served.
Along with information assurance, computer network security, digital forensics, cryptography, risk assessment/mitigation, disaster recovery, security regulations/compliance, and information security management, IoT is one the key focus areas of the CERC. https://lnkd.in/dgUpb-uhashtag#iothashtag#cyber
