CERIAS Security Seminar: The Shoulders of InfoSec

The Center for Education and Research in Information Assurance and Security
March 24, 2021
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM


Jack Daniel

Abstract: The nature of cybersecurity and modern life is such that we feel pressured to run just to keep up, this leaves us no time to look back and reflect on how we got where we are as an industry and field of study, nor to learn about the people who led the way.

In this presentation we will dig into the stories of some of the people who were foundational in the field we know call cybersecurity, some well-known, others obscure.
