GRU hosts cybersecurity conference

Local and national cyber experts are developing ways to counteract the growing number of cyberattacks, and you could learn from them for free.

You can now register for BSidesAugusta 2015, a cybersecurity conference that gathers experts from across the country to discuss the latest on cyberattack and cyberdefense strategies. The conference will go from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sept. 12 at Georgia Regents University.

“GRU is proud to host and help sponsor BSidesAugusta,” said Joanne Sexton, Director of Cyber Security Educational Initiatives at GRU. “Through our association with BSidesAugusta since 2013, our students, faculty and information technology staff as well as the local community have benefited from highly technical, professional cybersecurity presentations by well-known cyber industry experts.”

There is no cost to attend the conference, but space is limited. You must register by Aug. 1 on the BSidesAugusta website. All participants will receive a free t-shirt and lunch at the event.
