Torn from the Headlines (series)
Weighty news topics break each day, and many times the immediacy and importance of the issues warrant more than just a sound bite. This monthly series goes behind the news headlines with a two-part program each month! On Monday afternoons you will hear from an expert on a timely topic from the news, with the opportunity for an extended Q&A. Topics may include politics, law, international relations, science, health, the arts and more. In keeping with the fast-changing news, topics and speakers will be announced shortly before each session. That means you won’t know the topic or the speaker when you sign up for the series in advance! But you do know that since it’s brought to you by OLLI that it will be of the same excellence and rigor that you’ve come to expect. Relevant written materials will be provided. Torn Speaker Second Mondays from January to June, 4-5 pm January 11, February 8, March 8, April 12, May 10, June 7 $55/series; $10/per session Follow-up Discussions in the OLLI Commons on Tuesdays have been discontinued. Monday, June 7th: Cybersecurity: Personal, Corporate and Governmental Risk and Strategies for Addressing Vulnerabilities Speaker: Kristin Judge, founder of the nonprofit Cybercrime Support Network News of extensive Russian hacking of a number of U.S. government agencies and major corporations broke recently, prompting many questions about the strength of our cybersecurity. Why was the Russian hacking not detected by any of the government agencies that have cybersecurity roles? Is our reliance on private companies for our nation’s cybersecurity strategy appropriate, or does this pose a vulnerability? The Cybercrime Support Network works with federal, state and local law enforcement and consumer protection agencies to help consumers and small businesses affected by cybercrime. Ms. Judge’s extensive background includes her role as Director of Government Affairs at the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) where she worked with Google, FTC, FBI, SBA, DHS, NIST, congressional leaders and other key stakeholders across the country to educate consumers and businesses on how to protect sensitive data.
