Online shopping has increased in popularity of the past few years and with it a rise in the threat to information safety. To help reduce this threat, UHD and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are offering a special Cyber Safety Presentation on Wednesday, December 10 from 1 – 2:30 p.m. in room N1099.
James Morrison, a computer scientist with the FBI assigned to the Houston Division, is stopping by campus to speak to faculty, staff and students about how to increase their cyber safety. Morrison serves as a technical expert to special agents and task force officers assigned to the Houston Area Cyber Crimes Task Force.
In addition to speaking about online holiday shopping safety, Morrison will discuss the unique challenges that face universities with regards to cyber intrusions, such as:
- Who are cyber attackers?
- What do they want, and how do they go about it?
- How university employees are uniquely exposed due to their work.
- How people can protect themselves in today’s cyber environment.
- How the FBI and other government agencies can help.
The program is sponsored by the UHD Police Department, the Office of Emergency Management and UHD Information Technology. Pizza will be provided to attendees.
