George Mason University Fall Cybersecurity Innovation Forum
Fall George Mason University Cybersecurity Innovation Forum Join us for a series of short presentations by cybersecurity technology innovators from throughout the region. Presentations will be followed by plenty of opportunity for discussion and discovery. The focus of the evening will be on innovations that address current and evolving challenges and have had a real, measurable impact. The speakers include: Rick Tiene, Vice President, Government and Critical Infrastructure, Mission Secure Roger Kim, Co-founder, Safe Cloud Box Jim Jones, Ph.D. Associate Professor, Digital Forensics and Cyber Analysis, George Mason University Ronnie Mainieri, Ph.D., CEO and Co-founder, PermissionBit Steampunk Quantum Computing Could the Victorians have invented quantum computing? Many of the ideas of quantum computing only require the mathematics already available during the Victorian era, even if the engineering to build those computers may not have existed. After introducing quantum computers without any quantum mechanics, we will explore possible physical realizations for that formalism, including technologies that are practical today. Sponsored by the Center for Assurance Research and Engineering, CARE at the Volgenau School of Engineering and the Research Partnerships and Grants Initiative at the School of Business. The Cybersecurity Innovation Forum Series is generously supported by Accenture. More details about directions and parking can be found at the bottom of this post (highly recommended for first-time comers). Please mark the date. As usual, this event is free (parking does require payment). Light refreshments will be provided. As with previous events, the Forum will consist of a series of 15-20 minute case study presentations by cybersecurity experts and technology innovators followed by a panel discussion and Q&A. The focus of the meetings is on cybersecurity innovation including innovation rationale and motivation, technology, metrics, and lessons learned. Follow us on Twitter @MasonCyber for more up-to-date discussions on cybersecurity and innovation. We look forward to seeing you soon and having another successful Forum! ___________________________________________________ Directions: George Mason’s Fairfax Campus / 4400 University Dr., Fairfax, VA http://www.gmu.edu/resources/welcome/Directions/Directions-to-Fairfax.html Physical address (for GPS): Research Hall, 10401 York River Road, Fairfax, VA 22030 Campus map: https://www.gmu.edu/resources/welcome/FairfaxMap16_Info.pdf The Closest Visitor parking ($3/hour) available is in the Shenandoah Parking Deck (No. 43 on map), located across from Research Hall (No. 50 on map).
