GW’s Virginia Science & Technology Campus (VSTC) will host a panel discussion titled “Linking Disciplines: The Key to Increased Enterprise Security.” The lecture will feature information security experts Diana L. Burley, associate professor of human and organizational learning in GW’s Graduate School of Education and Human Development and co-chair of the National Academy of Sciences Professionalizing of the Nation’s Cybersecurity Workforce Committee; and Kenneth R. van Wyk, internationally recognized information security expert, author of the books, Incident Response and Secure Coding and monthly columnist for Computerworld. The two will discuss their views on linking two historically separate disciplines, information security and software security–as well as taking a holistic view towards developing the cyber security workforce–as being the key to increased enterprise security on software, networks and services.
