Mankato, Minn. -- Cybercrime expert Ryan Manship will give a presentation titled "The Cyber Frontlines: Recognizing and Combating Cybercrime," at noon on Wednesday, Oct. 19 in Ostrander Auditorium as part of IT Solutions Information Security's National Cyber Security Awareness Month campaign.

Manship is the security practice director for RedTeam Security, a company in St. Paul, Minn., that describes itself on its website as "a premiere provider of penetration testing, social engineering and red teaming security services."

Last year, RedTeam Security was hired by a power company in the Midwest to see if its personnel could break into buildings and hack into the network.

The results are posted on YouTube and Amazon Video in a short 15-minute video titled “Hacking the Grid” that has gone viral, with well over a million views in the past five months.

The presentation will also be available for viewing online at
