COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — The University of Maryland will hold a cybersecurity seminar in April made possible by a sponsorship from Google.
The university announced Tuesday that the series will begin with a talk by Vint Cerf, one of the Internet’s founding fathers, entitled “Can We Make the Internet Safer?”
The seminar, scheduled to begin April 7 in College Park, is being organized by the Maryland Cybersecurity Center. Other speakers at the seminar will talk about the impact that cybersecurity threats and protective measures are having on privacy, social networks, business and national security.
A second seminar will be held April 21.
The university says Google has committed to a three-year sponsorship of the new series. It will include three seminars a semester.
