On June 21, 2016 the National Cybersecurity Institute (NCI) hosted a webinar entitled “Network Security”.
Network attacks put the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data, systems, and services at risk. Network security is based on three elements: people, processes, and technology. We have to assure securing all these together to provide optimal network security.
The webinar, examined networking concepts, network attacks, and network defenses. This webinar is the fifth in a series of eight webinars discussing the fundamentals of cybersecurity (Cybersecurity 101).
The webinar was presented by Jim Jones, PhD, an Associate Professor at George Mason University. His teaching and research activities are focused on digital forensics, specifically the extraction, processing, analysis, and manipulation of digital artifacts. He has been a cyber security and digital forensics practitioner and researcher in industry, government, and academia for over 20 years. His current and past research has been sponsored by DARPA, DHS, NSF, NPS, DoD, and SAIC.
Dr. Jones earned his Bachelor’s degree from Georgia Tech (Industrial and Systems Engineering, 1989), Master’s degree from Clemson University (Mathematical Sciences, 1995), and PhD from George Mason University (Computational Sciences and Informatics, 2008)
