with Mark Lanterman, Chief Technology Officer, Computer Forensic Services; Instructor, Technological Leadership Institute, University of Minnesota

You've read the headlines. Unfortunately, the question is not if your information is going to be accessed or stolen, but when. No individual, organization, institution, or government is immune to cyber crime.

Join us March 2 when cyber-security specialist Mark Lanterman will discuss recent high-profile cyber-crime events, including website breaches that have impacted retailers, banks, and government agencies. Lanterman also will survey security threats that specifically target our nation’s critical infrastructure via the Dark Web, the Internet of Things, phishing, and Wi-Fi attacks.

Mark Lanterman, MS, BS, Upsala College, is the Founder and Chief Technology Officer of Minnesota-based Computer Forensic Services, and has 28 years of security and forensic experience. Prior to entering the private sector, Lanterman was a sworn investigator for the
U. S. Secret Service Electronic Crimes Taskforce. He has led thousands of computer forensic investigations and provided expert witness testimony for more than 2000 cases. A sought after speaker internationally, Lanterman provides regular commentary on cyber-security issues for national print and broadcast media, including NBC, ABC, NPR, Al Jazeera, Bloomberg, BusinessWeek, the Wall Street Journal, and the New York Times. He is an instructor for the University of Minnesota’s Technological Leadership Institute, and also teaches at Mitchell Hamline Law School and the National Judicial College in Reno, Nevada. Lanterman recently conducted training for the United States Supreme Court through the Federal Judicial Center in Washington D.C. Learn more…
