Hundreds “Raise the Bar” on Info Security at Cyber Security Day

In the ever-changing fields of information technology and cyber security, it is crucial for professionals to keep up with the most current information and trends. To help provide some of this cutting-edge training, The Ohio State University’s Enterprise Security team hosted the 2016 Cyber Security Day on Thursday, Oct. 20.

More than 500 IT professionals from around campus and the Wexner Medical Center participated in the day-long training event. Presenters included Helen Patton, chief information security officer at Ohio State; Paula Januszkiewicz, world-renowned trainer and Microsoft Security trusted advisor; Kevin Johnson, CEO of Secure Ideas; and representatives from the FBI’s cyber security division.

The fifth annual Cyber Securtity Day was the largest hosted at Ohio State since the event’s inception. It’s held during National Cyber Security Awareness Month, which is a collaborative effort between the government and the information technology industry to ensure people have the resources they need to stay safe online .
