School of Engineering to Host Cybersecurity Panel Discussion, Sept. 16

In celebration of its 25th anniversary, the Fairfield University School of Engineering invites alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends to a 6 p.m. reception and 6:45 p.m. panel discussion entitled “Air, Land, Sea… and Your Wallet: Cybersecurity in the Internet Age” on Monday, September 16 in the Dogwood Room of the Barone Campus Center.

With new threats to cybersecurity evolving at an unprecedented rate, cyberspace has become an operational domain – like air, land, and sea, in military-speak – in which governments, businesses, institutions, and individuals must equip themselves to defend against attack.

How can we know with any certainty that our personal information is secure? Which groups or organizations pose the biggest threats to internet safety? What is being done – and what can we do – to help build a safer online world?

These questions and more will be addressed at a 25th anniversary reception and panel discussion hosted by Fairfield University’s School of Engineering on Monday, September 16 in the Dogwood Room of the Barone Campus Center. Join the conversation on the ever-changing cybersecurity landscape and its impact on “air, land, sea… and your wallet," to be moderated by broadcast veteran Marc Bernier, host of an eponymous Florida radio talk show. The panel will feature the following cybersecurity innovators and experts:

  • Hon. Michael A.L. Balboni – President and Managing Partner Redland Strategies,
    Chair for the Cyber and Physical Security Committee of the New York Power Authority's Board of Trustees

  • Dr. Gary Kessler – Branch Chief - Cyber Readiness, U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, and Professor of Cybersecurity
  • Andrew Struzik ’01, M’09 – Director of Cybersecurity for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

Heist, PhD, “The shared knowledge, experience, and insight of these diverse panelists promises to contribute greatly to this important dialogue.”
