FBI's Cyber Crime Squad Supervisor
in the Poag Auditorium at TSU
on October 27, 2014
The Poag Auditorium is located in the front
of the Humanities Building.
Every day, criminals invade countless offices across the nation -- not by breaking down windows and doors, but by
breaking into laptops, personal computers,
and wireless devices via hacks and bits of malicious code .
The collective impact is staggering. Billions of dollars are lost every year repairing computer systems hit by such attacks. Some attacks are designed to steal sensitive and valuable information from companies' databases. Other attacks take down vital systems, disabling the work of businesses around the country.
DOLLAR LOSS WAS DOUBLED IN 2009
In 2009, the annual dollar loss due to Internet fraud was nearly double the previous year and cyber attacks on company databases are increasingly more common. (source: 2009 IC3 Annual Report)
