Cyber Security training imageSept. 13, 2023 - Richmond Community College will once again be hosting a Cyber Security Summit this fall to help raise awareness about the need to protect your online activity, as well as career opportunities in the field of cyber security.

The Cyber Security Summit will be held Tuesday, Oct. 10, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Robinette Building in downtown Rockingham. Guest speakers will be Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Semper Sec Rob Carson and Chief Operating Officer and Co-Founder of Semper Sec Bradley Stine. These two experts in cyber security will preside over three sessions planned for the day.

In session one, participants will be presented with an overview of current cyber threat landscape and best practices for mitigation. During session two, which will include a lunch break, the focus will be on cyber security jobs and how to begin a career in this ever-evolving line of work.

If you plan to attend the Summit, you are encouraged to bring your laptop in for a quick check to make sure you are using the security that is built-in to your operating system. This will be part of the “community health check” of session three.
