Session C2
US Army Approach to Cyber Security
Time & Location 10:00AM - 11:00AM | Room 317B
Todd Barnes
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers-Honolulu Engineer District

Cyber security has gained increasing importance and scrutiny recently. The lack of cyber security has touched many, from hospital breaches in the UK; ransomware and stealing of personal data from the University of Hawaii and the Federal Office of Personnel Management. Are our own utilities safe from hacking? Are our military facilities safe? Can someone shut down Tripler Army Medical Center utility systems? This seminar will discuss the current status and thoughts of how the US Army is approaching cyber security requirements.
