Advanced Threat Defense Using Non-Persistent Environments In The Enterprise


The February IEEE Central Iowa Section meeting will feature a presentation by Andrew Neller.  Please join us for free pizza and pop before the meeting.  This will be a joint meeting with the Computer Society Chapter. The ISU Student Branch will be our hosts for this meeting.

Attendees will see a proven defense-in-depth control structure that deals well with complex adversaries and ransomware/malware.  The talk is structured in a plug-and-play way so that attendees can take away different aspects of the security controls presented that work for their own environments.

Save the date!  The local chapter of the Control Systems Society is hosting two Distinguished Lecturer Talks:

Distinguished Lecture by Anuradha Annaswamy, PhD, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
