AUGUSTA, GA (PR) As part of its commitment, GRU will host a Cyber-Education Summit from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 23, in the J. Harold Harrison M.D. Education Commons on the Health Sciences Campus. Admiral Michael S. Rogers, Commander of the U.S. Cyber Command, Director of the National Security Agency, and Chief of Central Security, will provide the keynote address.

Georgia Regents University (GRU) has joined leaders in industry, education, not-for-profit, and government to become a National Cyber Security Awareness Month 2014 Champion and help promote online safety awareness.

Recognized in October, National Cyber Security Awareness Month was created as a collaborative effort between government and industry to ensure resources are available to help promote online safety and security. The awareness effort, now in its 11th year, is coordinated and led by the National Cyber Security Alliance and the Department of Homeland Security.

“Cybersecurity is one of the most pressing issues facing our nation today, and as a Champion, we are committed to public education and discussion on how to create safer, more secure online communities,” said Shawn Vincent, Vice President of Strategic Partnerships and Affiliations at GRU.
