Universities are not immune from data breaches and cyber attacks. Learn to protect your research data at this webinar with McMaster experts in IT Security and Cybersecurity. After introducing Information Security (a field dedicated to protecting sensitive digital information and data from unauthorized access, alteration, and/or destruction), the session will examine InfoSec problems specific to researchers. This webinar will also include a case study: If we take a hypothetical research workplace (such as a lab or office), what are its potential Information Security weak spots and how might we fix them?
Details: This virtual workshop will be recorded. The recording will be posted to the Sherman Centre's Online Learning Catalogue.
