Strengthening Your Personal IT Security in Research

A practice oriented exchange offered by the Human Resources Development

Law enforcement and intelligence agencies have increasingly issued warnings about researchers and academics being targeted by cyber threats. In addition to criminals looking for a payday, intelligence agencies are targeting researchers for various reasons, including surveillance and intellectual property theft. This event should give you a better understanding about cyber threats and what you can personally do to safeguard your data.

Exchange your experiences and discuss your questions.
