Cyber Security Talk

Date: Wed. 1 Mar, 2017 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Duration: 1 Hour 30 Minutes
Location: Workman Center

Dr. Drew Hamilton of Mississippi State University presents a special talk with a STEM focus on cyber security, vulnerabilities, and forensics. His talk is titled "Navigating the Digital Divide - How worried should you be about your cyber security?" This talk is hosted by the NMT Center for Graduate Studies. 

Any hands-on demonstration of the current state of the art in digital forensics is likely to increase one's sense of paranoia. For this reason, cyber security is a rapidly growing field. Combined with never-ending operating system upgrades and ever-increasing numbers of mobile devices, cyber security is a perennially changing field. This presentation will discuss the impacts of the so-called digital divide. The unsuspecting are ever more vulnerable, while the savvy user can easily obtain tools to hide their tracks. Current trends in computing are pushing us to share more information in an increasingly dangerous environment. Topics will include current trends in digital forensics versus anti-forensics, password vulnerabilities, USB vulnerabilities, anonymous routing and network logs, dealing with encryption, dealing with steganography, and recognizing manipulation of time stamps. 2 p.m. in Workman 101. Dr. Hamilton will be available for questions until 3:30 p.m.
