Chancellor’s Professor of Computer Science Michael Franz will be discussing Cyber Attacks and Defenses: Trends, Challenges, and Outlook at the March 8 Meetup for the Orange County ACM Chapter. The Meetup is from 6:30-9:30 p.m. on March 8 at The Cove at UCI Applied Innovation. His talk will present a time-line of attacks and defenses, clearly illustrating a “cat and mouse game” in which defenses are almost always reactive to attacks that have already happened. Franz will also discuss his vision of how to get ahead of the attackers, and close by stating why, in spite of the bleak situation today, he is confident that we will eventually be able to stop most kinds of cyber attacks completely.

This event, like all Orange County ACM Chapter meetings, are free and open to the public. For more information and online registration, visit the event’s Meetup page.

The Orange County ACM Chapter meets bi-monthly at The Cove at UCI Applied Innovation. According to the hosts, there will be plenty of free parking, light refreshments and time to network with others prior to the start of the formal meeting program.
