Once we became deeply dependent on the internet, business, government, and our critical infrastructure fell vulnerable to serious security risks. Early on, we recognized that strategic weaknesses can be exploited by foreign agents, resulting in catastrophic failure of our power grid, transportation systems, and other vital civic arteries. Today, new threats have emerged from criminals who exploit private computers, steal intellectual property, and engage in espionage. Noted expert Marcus Hans Sachs, supported by a distinguished panel of fellow cyber experts, will examine these internet threat groups, separating media hype from what is really happening. sachs and his colleagues call for a powerful partnership between public and private sectors to protect and secure cyberspace security.

The event will be simulcast on the web. Watch live at poly.edu/live as well as the conference website, http://engineering.nyu.edu/sloan-lecture-series.
