Summer’s Here – Let’s Talk CyberSecurity

You may have noticed that the issue of Cybersecurity is permanently in the news now. Along with delays on routes to beaches for the official kick-off of summer, better known as Memorial Day weekend, there were several reports a hacker group compromised PBS and issued a story reporting the rapper Tupac is alive and well in New Zealand. There seems to be a rise in higher profile breaches recently (Lockheed Martin was compromised the previous weekend). Taken together with word from the Pentagon that a cyber attack may be met with a conventional military response, we have to ask, are we in a ramp up period of a cyber war?

Cybersecurity is now so mainstream that many consider cybersecurity a growth field and source of economic development, which means we will need to provide the education to develop additional cybersecurity experts. On this week’s show, we’ll talk with Suresh Balakrishnam, Associate Vice Chancellor and Deputy CIO of the University System of Maryland, who recently released a report on how Maryland’s higher education system can improve its cybersecurity educational offerings as well as how the state, as a whole, can leverage the expected growth in this field for economic benefits.

Also, this week, we will be announcing Big News about the show! Tune in and find out. Check out our Facebook page and our Twitter feed throughout the week…we may wikileak some info before Thursday’s show.
