This week on Cyber Frontiers Christian and Jim are joined by special guest Jeremy Krach to provide the 2016 cybersecurity forecast. We first wrap-up 2015 by discussing the latest hack challenges and cybersecurity breaches, and then dive into what tools, technologies, and challenges will shape the evolution of cybersecurity over the next year. We also look at how the cybersecurity threat space will change and whether or not corporations and individuals are prepared to combat it. It’s a holiday special you won’t want to miss!
Cyber Frontiers is all about Exploring Cyber security, Big Data, and the Technologies Shaping the Future Through an Academic Perspective! Christian Johnson, a student at the University of Maryland will bring fresh and relevant topics to the show based on the current work he does.
