The eighth annual Cyber Security Symposium will take place from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 15, at the Busch Student Center, sponsored by SLU's School for Professional Studies.
In order to understand and combat future cyber-attacks, it is important to pursue an analysis of disparate cyber actors, 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.
