This year's topic, Insider Threats: This Time It's Personal, is very appropriate being one of today's largest security threats. While some insiders are driven by malicious intent, the vast majority of insider threats are created innocently through accidental or inadvertent behavior from employees or contractors who have no intention in harming their employer. Security breaches, such as the one at Target in 2013, resulted from negligence of contractors and employees which allowed them to be hacked.

The morning will begin with student presentations and the awarding of IA Certificates earned last year. Local speakers are from CentraComm, Marathon Petroleum Corporation, and Watchtower IT Services. External speakers are from KnowBe4, FBI Cleveland Division and Eastman & Smith.
