Terrorism and counter-intelligence, the meaning of those words have dramatically changed over the past twenty years…people generally don’t think of terrorism when they think of cyber, but they should.” – Special Agent Daniel Elfin, Special Agent, FBI, January 29, 2013 while speaking at Excelsior College.
This was one on the reasons Excelsior College invited the FBI Cyber Unit and InfraGard, a partnership between the FBT and the private sector focused on information and intelligence sharing, onto campus Monday for a public information session. The purpose of the event was to increase awareness of the need to protect personal and corporate, public and private information that relies upon electronic (cyber) storage and dissemination.
