In celebration of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, the Office of Information Technologies (OIT) is sponsoring two informative presentations: Keeping Kids Safe Online and Information Security at ND.

Keeping Kids Safe Online will be presented on Wednesday, October 24, from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. at Room 105, Jordan Hall of Science.

The presentation focuses on how parents can help keep their children safe online. The “online world” has its own set of rules and pitfalls. Cyber-bullying, social networking, online predators, identitytheft, and online reputation are potential threats that cannot be ignored. This presentation covers these and other important issues, as well as the parent’s role in keeping kids safe online.

The presenter is Kolin Hodgson, senior security analyst, Information Security division of the OIT.

Information Security at ND will be presented on Friday, October 26, from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. at Room 105, Jordan Hall of Science.

The presentation is designed for those who want to learn more about the role of Information Security at Notre Dame. BetweenBurbs, IDS, Webinspect, incident response and RFC approvals, most people may find information security a bit confusing. You’ll learn more about these and other issues facing Information Security professionals today. We also can provide the answers to common information security questions, such as:

  • What does Notre Dame’s network security architecture look like?
  • How do email accounts get hacked?
  • Which Information Security person should I contact?

Presenters include the OIT Information Security team: David Seidl, Brandon Bauer, Jaime Preciado-Beas, Kolin Hodgson, James Smith, Aaron Wilkey and Jason Williams.

These presentations are open to the Notre Dame community and general public. Registration is not required.
