The Cyber Frontlines: topic of 10/12 info security presentation

What you need to know to defend yourself

"What you need to know to defend yourself": Jeff Evenson at Ostrander Aud., Wed., Oct. 12 at noon.


Plan to attend the next National Cyber Security Awareness Month presentation at noon on Oct. 12, 2016 at Ostrander Auditorium at Minnesota State University, Mankato. Jeff Evenson, Principal Security Analyst at AgStar Financial Services, will be speaking. His topic at the presentation will be: The Cyber Frontlines – What You Need to Know to Defend Yourself and Your Company.

Employees are the frontlines of defense in any type of cyber-attack. The challenge is bridging the knowledge gap on what you can do to help defend your company and your community. The interesting part is what you protect at work is really no different than what you protect at home. Jeff will discuss the relevance between these two worlds – home and work; along with the understanding that security awareness isn’t just for the professionals anymore.

Jeff has a deep background in network and computer security with over 30 years of experience, and retired from the Navy after 20 years as a Navy Cryptologist. He has also managed security teams in the mobile wireless sector, did security consulting, owned his own small business, and was founding president of a local ISSA Chapter. Jeff occasionally writes for the internet and speaks publically on Information Security.
