NetCentrics’ cyber experts Marvin Marin and Michelle Miranda recently presented at the Cybersecurity 2017 Academic Seminar in Washington, D.C. at the Washington Center. The purpose of the seminar is to raise cyber awareness by examining issues surrounding the defensive and offensive protection of online space. Speaking topics included a variety of topics such as intrusion detection and response, forensics, risk management, and education and certification among others.
Marin and Miranda presented on cyber risk management and the challenges of addressing, accepting, or avoiding risks to an organization’s enterprise environment while also managing operational concerns and resources. “We wanted to give the students a real world understanding of balancing and managing risk across all of the domains they would be expected to operate in,” said Marin. “The students asked fantastic and thought provoking questions based on the real world examples that were highlighted during the presentation,” Miranda continued. “It’s apparent that the professors have equipped them with a strong technical knowledge that will serve them well in their future careers.”
