Long Beach Hosting Free Cyber Security Workshop

The Port of Long Beach is presenting a free workshop on computer security threats from 1:30 to 2:30 pm Wed., Oct. 30 as part of National Cyber Security Awareness Month.

During the workshop, MAD Security managing partner Mike Murray will speak on the importance of the “human firewall” – everyone’s participation in cyber security.

Murray has spent more than a decade helping companies large and small to protect their information by understanding their vulnerability posture from the perspective of an attacker. With MAD Security, he leads engagements to help corporate and government customers understand and protect their security organization.

The workshop takes place in Long Beach’s Port Administration Building 6th Floor Board Room, 925 Harbor Plaza, Long Beach, CA 90802. The event will also be webcast live at www.polb.com/webcast. The webcast will also be available for viewing after the live event.

Refreshments will be served after the presentation. No RSVPs are necessary.
