Securing the Cloud Is a Shared Responsibility

Cloud computing—using a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage, and process data—is an attractive solution for business owners and government agencies from a security standpoint. If used properly, cloud computing can result in fewer security concerns and greater cost savings. But what about security?

Last month at CyberMaryland 2018, Jimmy Robertson, program chair, Computer Science and Software Development and Security at University of Maryland University College, sat down with us to explain how cloud security is a shared responsibility among all stakeholders and to offer his  insights into the security implications of moving into the cloud.

How Secure Are Our Election Systems?

Some final thoughts leading up to the November 8 mid-term elections from UMUC Cybersecurity expert Balakrishnan Dasarathy.

Can our election systems be hacked? In 2018, as we move closer to the mid-term elections, a more pointed and compelling question might very well be, in the wake of election hacking and continued interference, can U.S. citizens trust our election results?

We caught up with Balakrishnan Dasarathy, professor and program chair of Cybersecurity and Information Assurance at University of Maryland University College, at last week’s CyberMaryland 2018 event to get his thoughts (see video below) leading up to the 2018 mid-terms.
