You know that cyber security is a real issue - even if your boss doesn’t get it. Time to stress less about it and enjoy a fun look at real, Information and Cyber Security stories in the news. These are a sampling of current security news stories from the last 3 months. As he did at last year’s POWERUp and NAViGATE events, Robert Nettgen will read a sampling of these stories in a dramatic, over the top, radio announcer style. While usually not mentioned by name, it’s a safe bet that some of these companies in the news have an IBM i server hiding in the data center. A list of the stories will be shared, so if your boss thinks this stuff is overblown and not a real risk, feel free to share some of these stories - or even the whole list.

Learning Objectives:
1. Gain a deeper understanding about the seriousness of cybersecurity
2. Learn from others' cybersecurity mistakes and how to avoid them in your own systems
