Computer and network security, in addition to national and global security online (now generally termed cybersecurity) has been of great concern to the CFTMS founders for many years. The capability of bad actors to undertake efforts to cripple and destroy computer networks and machinery connected to them has been growing over time. Now it seems that we have hit a tipping point where business and government are beginning to take note, now that we are seeing more significant breaches on a regular basis.
Cybersecurity, network and computer security has been a key issue for CFTMS since day one. We have continually worked to educate people in government, industry and academia about these issues through lectures, papers and special events. We look forward to participating in discussions, activities and events to further this part of our mission.
