How easy is it to hack a top web site or data center? How is terrorist threat assessment performed? How can the government and the private sector cooperate to make for a safer environment? The School of Management Technology Management Program will present these critical issues at a talk tonight at 7:30 p.m. in Mason Hall, Room D23.

The keynote speakers are Kevin McCrohan, professor in the School of Management, and Mark Fabro, chief security scientist for AMS Enterprise Security Group. McCrohan served as a U.S. Army colonel on active duty with the U.S. National Infrastructure Protection Center and the Department of Homeland Security, where he was the principal liaison officer with the financial sector. Fabro’s focus lies in the emerging security strategies that provide clients with effective solutions for complex mission critical architectures, and he is also recognized as an expert in cyber-terrorism forecasting and network attack methodologies.

There will be a reception before the event at 6:30 p.m. For more information, contact Clodagh Bassett at (703) 993-1792 or cbassett@gmu.edu.
