Philly Tech Week Panel: The State of Cyber Security in Philadelphia
Start Date: 5/1/2018Start Time: 1:00 PM
End Date: 5/1/2018End Time: 2:30 PM
Event Description
We are seeing growing threats and attacks in regard to cybersecurity – against government, schools, industry, critical infrastructure. The number of security incidents climbs each year, along with the cost to respond and remediate these incidents. Is there sufficient awareness of the problem - do we have sufficient cyberliteracy? Are we making enough progress? Is there enough talent in the pipeline to keep our region safe?

Come hear from our panel of Philadelphia experts in this fast-moving and hugely important space!

The panelists for our discussion include:
  • Tom Schiavinato, Director of Network and Security Operations at Comcast
  • Donna Ross, CISO at Radian
  • Thomas Heverin, PhD information studies '14, Principal Cyber Security Engineer at PGFM Solutions and Adjunct Faculty at Drexel
  • Colbert Zhu, Computer Science student at Drexel and club president of the CyberDragons
The discussion will be moderated by Brad Bowers (AVP Security Services – Radian and an organizer of BSides Philly)

This FREE event is organized by PCEA which is the Philadelphia Cybersecurity Education Alliance. PCEA is a non-profit that is all about elevating the visibility of cyber in Philly, and about building connections in tech-education-government. Our goals are to get more people interested in and ready for the field of cybersecurity, and to connect people with opportunities.
