January 17, 2107 Susquehanna Section Dinner/Presentation: Cybersecurity

January 17, 2017 @ 11:30 pm - January 18, 2017 @ 2:30 am


Topic: Cybersecurity



Cybersecurity is an issue that impacts a wide breadth and depth of global society. It can have effects for an individual at the very personal level, at their workplace, in their local community, as well as at the national security level. Identities can be stolen, proprietary company information can be stolen, utility services could be interrupted, military action could be disrupted, and National Essential Functions for continuity of government could be denied.



No security is perfect in either the physical or cyber domains, but everyone should be educated to make informed risk decisions in order to apply resources to reduce risk to a level that they can accept. Hope is not a method.


Cybersecurity is a team sport. The President signed the Cybersecurity Act of 2015 to strengthen the Nation’s cybersecurity with a strategy to enhance cybersecurity awareness and protections, protect privacy, maintain public safety, economic and national security, and empower Americans to take better control of their digital security.


LTC Eric Van Den Bosch is a Signal Officer in the U.S. Army with experience in Cybersecurity and protecting our military networks, but the principles apply to individuals as well as private and public organizations.


The intent of the topic is to bring additional awareness and dialogue across the IEEE community in order to enable a more proactive Cybersecurity approach in the environment that we live and work.Topics to be covered include: Protection of Critical Infrastructure (energy, water, transportation, etc.), American Values of both Security and Privacy, Being an Informed Consumer with the Internet of Things (IoT), and discussion of what you can do within your realm of influence.
