*IN-PERSON & VIRTUAL* RTP180: Cybersecurity
Thursday, October 21, 2021 (5:00 PM - 7:15 PM) (EDT)
Innovation. Education. Industry. These are powerful angles—and what Research Triangle Park is known for. At RTP180, speakers from our founding Universities, Park companies and the North Carolina community at-large, are called upon to speak passionately and authentically about what matters to them. The twist? They must do it in 5 minutes or less!
We ask our speakers to be intentional with their 300 seconds up on the virtual stage. What perspective of their industry are they able to share? What are their passions? What would our community be surprised to learn? What case studies in North Carolina are cutting edge?
As Halloween creeps closer, we're planning to talk about the spooky topic of cybersecurity. Just as Dracula attacks his victims while they sleep, data-thirsty criminals can quietly drain our systems of electronic information if left unprotected. Our local experts will share their tips and expertise on this topic while you enjoy complimentary popcorn and a beer from Fullsteam.
