You've read the headlines. Unfortunately, the question at this stage in the game is not whether your information is going to be accessed or stolen, but when. It makes no difference whether you’re a multi-million-dollar business or an average citizen—no entity is immune from internet crimes, many of which are increasingly sophisticated as human enterprise expands online. 

In recognition of October being National Cyber Security Awareness Month, we’ve invited Mark Lanterman, one of the nation’s leading cybersecurity experts, to survey recent high-profile cybercrime events, including website breaches that have impacted businesses, institutions, and organizations. Lanterman also will discuss the threats that affect individuals, including those that make use of the Dark Web, the Internet of Things, phishing scams, and Wi-Fi attacks.

And in the hope that you don’t become that next fish, current developments in the digital underground and realistic advice for your own cyber protection will be presented.

LearningLife’s From the Field series provides a firsthand look at the professions that shape, and the practitioners who influence our world.

Mark Lanterman is the Chief Technology Officer of Computer Forensic Services and a Seized Computer Evidence Recovery Specialist as certified by the Department of Homeland Security. A former member of the US Secret Service Electronic Crimes Task Force with 28 years of security and forensic experience, Lanterman has testified in more than 2,000 cases and provided training in digital evidence, computer forensics, and cyber security to the US Supreme Court. Lanterman is a professor in the cybersecurity program at the University of St. Thomas School of Law and teaches regularly for the Federal Judicial Center, Washington, D.C.; the National Judicial College, Reno, Nevada; Mitchell Hamline Law School; and the University of Minnesota. He serves on the Opinions Committee of the Minnesota Lawyers Professional Responsibility Board.

Offered in cooperation with the University's Cybersecurity Boot Camp.
