Everyone knows that cyber security is of paramount importance in this day and age. But what exactly does a thorough plan to anticipate, repel, and track cyber attacks entail? To answer this question, Lewis University’s Institute for Information Assurance is hosting a webinar, “What does a Comprehensive Cyber Security Program Look Like?” The featured speaker is Matt Kwiatkowski, Cyber Security Engineer for Argonne National Laboratory. The webinar will take place Wednesday, October 13, 2010, from 6 to 7 PM CDT. Interested parties can register online at
Mr. Kwiatkowski will identify and discuss the separate but interrelated pieces that make up a comprehensive cyber security program—including training and education, authentication and authorization, incident response and forensics, vulnerability scanning, policies and procedures, and log analysis—and how they can be organized to work together most effectively. Participants will learn how to form an inclusive plan that can help organizations fend off cyber attacks and threats.
In addition to working as the lead Cyber Forensic Analyst and Penetration tester for the Laboratory, Mr. Kwiatkowski is an adjunct professor at Lewis University, where he teaches undergraduate computer science courses and graduate information security courses. Mr. Kwiatkowski himself is a Lewis alumnus, holding a Master of Science in Information Security.
The Institute for Information Assurance is a collaboration between the Management Information Systems department at Lewis University’s College of Business and the Mathematics and Computer Science department in the College of Arts and Sciences. Its mission is to provide education and understanding in the field of information security, critical infrastructure protection, homeland security, and data network operations.
Lewis University’s online MS in Information Security program provides a solid background in information security with advanced topics in operations, forensics, programming, and strategic risk assessment. Coursework combines managerial and technical areas of study to help graduates achieve their career goals.
