AACC Hosts Free Cybersecurity Seminars

March 2, 2010

      Are you interested in the issues related to computer security? The Computer Technologies department at Anne Arundel Community College is offering three free cybersecurity seminars this spring to help ensure your safety and security.

      “PC Security – A Closer Look at PC Intrusions and How to Stop Them” addresses malware, spyware, spear phishing and attack vectors. Find out the latest in PC security attacks. Fight back with this 7 p.m. technology seminar on Monday, March 15, and learn how to secure, protect and prevent your computer from being infected.

      Next up at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 21, is the seminar, “Are you Ready to Move Into the Cloud? A Basic Introduction to Cloud Computing.” Many people and companies are switching from applications on their local computers to applications that run over the network, located in a “cloud” of resources. Participants will learn about the history, how this works, security issues associated with it and how it will impact the future of computing.

      Wrapping up the spring series at 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 11, is “Portrait of a Network Intrusion: Examining Current Attacks and How to Prevent Them.” Gain insights into how attacks can compromise a network and what can be done to defend against this growing threat. Examine Network Intrusion Detection (NIDS), Host Intrusion (HIDS) systems and migration actions as part of the overall information defense.

      The seminars take place in the Center for Applied Learning and Technology Room 100 on the Arnold campus, 101 College Parkway. For information call 410-777-2442. Call Disability Support Services, 410-777-2306 or Maryland Relay 711, 72 hours in advance to request most accommodations.
