Securing Our Region: A Cyber Security Seminar

In 2016, the average computer is probed more than once per second by an external entity unless it is in a protected network. IUP, S&T Bank, and InfraGard Pittsburgh Members Alliance have partnered to bring our region and you this event. With increased awareness and understanding of the cyber threat, you can better protect your company and yourself. In addition to an overview of the cyber threat, presenters will discuss social engineering and its impacts, business e-mail compromise, and ransomware.

Our goal is to make our region more resilient to cyber incidents and work to prevent you and your company from being a victim. This event is open to the public, and the key audience includes regional businesses, nonprofit organizations, education institutions, and law enforcement agencies in Western Pennsylvania.
