The Jesuits take time every year to do a retreat. These are often silent retreats where a person is able to simply stop and listen to their lives. The idea behind a sabbatical for university professors comes from the notion of a “sabbath” where a person simply stops what she is doing and just listens. An important part of the Ignation ethos is the importance of listening by practicing reflection. And reflection can only take place in the quiet places of a person’s life.
When people get into their cars they often turn on the radio- and if the music is good, they turn it up louder than they should. Some people, when they get home, immediately turn on the tv. Somehow, for many of us, there is a craving for constant noise. For others the noise isn’t always audible. It can be the noise of social media: the twitter account that does not stop or the facebook feed that needs constant attention. And this noise often drowns out important reflection that we could be doing. That is, we could take time away, even for a few moments, to listen to our lives without the noise of the world constantly interrupting. Theologian Frederick Buechner suggests that, “What deadens us most to God’s presence within us, I think, is the inner dialogue that we are continuously engaged in with ourselves, the endless chatter of human thought. I suspect that there is nothing more crucial to true spiritual comfort . . . than being able from time to time to stop that chatter . . . ”
Save the Date for the 8th Annual Cyber Security Symposium on March 15
In order to understand and combat future cyber-attacks, it is important to pursue an analysis of disparate cyberactors, including nation states, organized crime, hacktivists and terrorists. Individuals, corporations and governments must examine the use of particular attacks, used in specific ways, and different tactics and strategies being exhibited by the various cyber attackers.
This year’s symposium will include sessions exploring weaknesses and entry points for attacks, ransomware and hacking ideology and motivations. The event culminates with a panel discussion on the future of Hacking Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures.
