Save the Date! LLAM LRI: Cybersecurity and You!

Friday April 8, 2016

SMC Building, University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB)
Ballrooms A &B (All programs except Programs on Track B) | Room 349 (Programs on Track B*)

Cybersecurity is an ongoing and complex issue affecting institutions at the local, state and national level, and Maryland is at the epicenter, being the home of the National Security Administration (NSA), the U.S. Cyber Command, and home to dozens of cybersecurity firms.  Millions of attempts to breach security occur daily to gain access to clinical, legal, financial and other systems. However, where are the fine lines being drawn between insuring data security and enabling access? And what about individual rights?

The Health and Human Services Library, which is home to the National Network of Libraries of Medicine Southeastern/Atlantic Region, is partnering with the Thurgood Marshall Law Library, the Law Librarians Association of Maryland (LLAM) and the Center for Information Technology Services (CITS) at the University of Maryland Baltimore (UMB) to explore these questions through a one-day Cybersecurity Symposium. This conference will bring together public and private sector organizations working to prevent or stop cybersecurity threats to discuss the legal, regulatory, and policy framework of cybersecurity.  The conversation will cover academic, government and private entities, as well as the preventative measures that individuals should take to guard their own online presence.

The project has been funded in part with Federal funds from the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, under Contract No. HHS-N-276-2011-00004-C with the University of Maryland Baltimore.  This event is also made possible by a grant from the AALL/Bloomberg BNA Continuing Education Grants Program, and from funding by the UMB Health and Human Services Library, the UMB Center for Information Technology, and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU).
