Cyber Threats and How We Can Handle Them

Speaker: Boeing Shih, Special Agent, FBI

The FBI is the lead federal agency for investigating cyberattacks by criminals, overseas adversaries, and terrorists. Cyber intrusions are becoming more commonplace, more dangerous and more sophisticated. Adversaries target our nation’s critical infrastructure, including private and public sector networks. Companies are targeted for trade secrets and other sensitive corporate data. Universities are targeted for their cutting-edge research and development. Citizens are targeted by fraudsters and identity thieves, and children are targeted by online predators. This presentation will discuss how cyber criminals seek to victimize you and your country and what we can do about it.

Boeing Shih, FBI Special Agent, has investigated a variety of cyber cases including computer intrusions, internet fraud, and intellectual property rights violations over the last thirteen years including four years as a cyber squad supervisor. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from U.C. Berkeley.
