Cyber security starts with you
Lewis University Graduate School of Management invites you to an event to discuss the importance of increasing the American public's awareness and understanding about cyber security, and the role that academia, non-profits, and the public and private sectors play in preparing our Nation's next generation cyber workforce.
As part of the Stop.Think.Connect. public education campaign, the Cyber Citizen Forum is bringing together representatives from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Lewis University's Institute for Information Assurance as well as leadership, faculty and students from Lewis University, to discuss the challenges and opportunities we face as a Nation. The forum will also discuss how we can better protect individuals and communities from cyber attacks by elevating awareness and encouraging the public to take increased measures to protect themselves online.
 
The speaker will be Timothy Fraser, Director, National Cyber security Awareness Campaign, U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Timothy Fraser is the Director of the Department of Homeland Security’s Stop.Think.Connect.™ Campaign– a national cyber security awareness effort that is a key element of President Obama’s 2009 Cyberspace Policy Review. Stop.Think.Connect. aims to raise awareness about cyber security, ultimately increasing the understanding of cyber threats and empowering the American public to be safer and more secure online.  As Director of Stop.Think.Connect., Tim Fraser partners with members of the Cyber Awareness Coalition, Friends of the campaign, State and local governments, and universities to address the growing concerns about cyber security.  Through these partnerships, Fraser engages individual citizens to take responsibility and develop safer cyber habits, making their cyber infrastructure more secure.
