Walsh College Presents “Cyber Risks in our Hyperconnected World” Webinar on Dec. 7

Today’s ever-increasing world of digital interconnection between people and devices comes with cybersecurity risks.

Walsh College will host a complimentary webinar, “Cyber Risks in our Hyperconnected World,” from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 7, to discuss this issue.

BarbaraCiaramitaro Ciaramitaro, Ph.D., CISSP, CSSLP, PMP, professor and chair, Information Technology and Decision Sciences, and director of the Center for Cybersecurity Leadership at Walsh, will host the webinar.

“It’s not just about data breaches anymore; it’s about connectivity,” said Ciaramitaro. “It’s about connected videos, electrical grids, and home alarms. Billions of devices are connected to the internet, and what’s alarming is that a majority of these devices have no security protection at all.

“Cyber risks go beyond just data, and we will have to learn how to guard against threats.”
