Cybersecurity: What You Need to Know
Thursday, May 20, 1:00 to 2:00 PM PST Zoom webinar. 

Elvis Chan, Supervisory Special Agent, FBI, and Patrick Phelan, Chief Information Security Officer, UCSF

Cybersecurity is a key issue for us in our private lives — think identity theft — and at the national scale — such as federal elections. For scientists in academic & commercial labs, threats include IP theft, ransomware, and hacktivism. Where are we vulnerable to those who want to disrupt or steal from us? How can we do the best possible job of protecting ourselves and the organizations we serve? Join us to learn best practices from the FBI's Elvis Chan, who manages San Francisco's Cyber Branch, which is responsible for cyber investigations and digital forensics, and Patrick Phelan, chief information security officer at UCSF.
