MassBay plans IT security summit


Massachusetts Bay Community College will team up with Towerwall Inc., a Framingham-based company, to offer a summit on information security May 30 at its Oakland Street campus in Wellesley Hills. The workshop, to run from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., will focus on discussing the issues and threats to businesses posed by cyber crime, and technologies that can help protect virtual content. Brown University’s chief information security officer, David Sherry, will be the keynote speaker at the event, and will be joined by other local industry leaders, including the state’s top information security officer, Kevin Burns, FBI agents, lawyers specializing in the field, and various business leaders. Event organizers said cyber crime rose by about 600 percent nationwide from 2005 to 2012, and nearly three-quarters of Americans have been the victim of a cyber crime. The fee for Information Security Summit 2013 is $45, and preregistration is required. To register online, visit www.tinyurl.com/itsecuritysummit.
