New Information Security Institute Kicks off Seminar Series
with January 29 Talk by Engineering Dean
The Johns Hopkins University's new Information Security Institute will launch its spring seminar series on Monday, Jan. 29, with an introductory talk by Ilene Busch-Vishniac, dean of the Whiting School of Engineering at Johns Hopkins. She will talk about the need for the new institute and its future.
The talk, which is free and open to the public, will be held at 4 p.m. in the Arellano Theatre in Levering Hall on the university's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St., Baltimore.
The program is the first of seven lectures planned by the institute through April. The other talks will focus on topics such as cyber terrorism, intellectual property rights in a digital age and computer privacy issues.
The institute, also known as JHUISI, was established recently to tackle the complex technological, legal, ethical and public policy challenges of keeping information private and computer systems secure in an increasingly electronic world.
The institute will conduct research and offer courses, drawing on experts from nearly every school and division in the university. It will work in partnership with industry and government agencies.
