General Meetings


November 2, 2017

Keller Williams Realty
120 Bloomingdale Rd.   ****location map****
1st Floor
White Plains, NY 10605

Plan now to attend!

Grace Bonanno, a local college professor, will
explain to us the nature of cybersecurity and the
world of experts and criminals; cybersecurity
criminals versus cybersecurity specialists.

Cybersecurity risks and threats are ever present
in our world today. Network infrastructures and
the Internet are increasingly vulnerable to both
physical and cyber attacks. Since cyber criminals
can access networks from anywhere in the world,
vulnerabilities in our network infrastructure are
being exploited by sophisticated cyber criminals.

A cybersecurity specialist must think and behave
like a cyber criminal; they must possess the
same skills as hackers in order to protect against
attacks. Come and learn to protect your personal,
valuable data.
