You are cordially invited to attend this event with guest speaker Gina Yacone, a renowned cybersecurity consultant, who shares information about this interesting cybersecurity topic. 

On Sept. 19, 1980, near the small town of Damascus, Arkansas, someone dropped a socket, and it caused a breach. In terms of breaches, it was nuclear! Paradoxical as it may seem, the story of the 1980’s Damascus Titan II explosion showcases how a simple error parallels that of a significant breach of a company’s security infrastructure. Was the nuclear threat in 1980 preventable? Is a breach of a security environment preventable? Let’s deconstruct those questions and come up with a reasonable answer.
