    The focus will be on women in STEM and/or professional development books, and book nominations and selections will be facilitated through a participant voting process.  Please consider joining us for some reading FUN this year!   

    Registration for the Women & Hi Tech Virtual Book Club is available and FREE only to members of the organization and is required in order to provide you with the final login instructions. A login/password will be sent to the email address entered for this registration approximately 48 hours before the event begins.

    Join Women & Hi Tech and our panel of cybersecurity experts on June 24, 2021, for an important discussion that will inform our behaviors online. Learn about big recent cybersecurity events, the implications, and how you can improve your cyber hygiene report card. 

    According to recent reports, cybercrime has increased every year as people try to benefit from vulnerable business systems. Often, attackers are looking for ransom: 53% of cyber attacks resulted in damages of $500,000 or more.

    The news seems scary to some, especially cybersecurity professionals, but many of us mere mortals think, "I’m safe. This is big stuff. Governments and stuff, not me. This is more Tom Clancy novel then the everyday person like me.” However, poor cyber hygiene leads to corporate and national incidents. We all have a role to play. 

    Did you know:

    • In August of 2019, computer systems in 22 small Texas towns were rendered useless by ransomware, leaving their governments unable to provide basic services like issuing birth or death certificates.
    • Since COVID-19, the US FBI reported a 300% increase in reported cybercrimes.
    • For the second time in two years, the popular hotel chain suffered a data breach. On March 31, Marriott released a statement disclosing the information of 5.2 million guests was accessed using the login credentials of two employees at a franchise property.
    • In May 2020, the healthcare insurance giant Magellan issued a letter to victims stating it had suffered a ransomware attack. Threat actors had successfully exfiltrated logins, personal information and tax information. The scope of the attack included eight Magellan Health entities and approximately 365,000 patients may have been impacted.
    • In June of 2020, the FDA confirmed that St. Jude Medical’s implantable cardiac devices have vulnerabilities that could allow a hacker to access a device. Once in, they could deplete the battery or administer incorrect pacing or shocks.
    • In Indiana, in September 2020, the Carmel city website was hacked and subsequently taken off line while investigators looked into the attack. Also in September, a teen was arrested for a hack on Valparaiso Community Schools.

    This is a FREE webinar for Women & Hi Tech members and non-members, however you do need to register to claim your spot for this webinar.  Zoom login information will be sent to the email address entered for this registration approximately 48 hours before the event begins.  Feel free to spread the word and share this virtual Executive Women's Forum invitation with your colleagues, family and friends!  

    Schedule:
    We’ll kick off this EWF at 11 am with our Annual Members Meeting and member voting for the 2021- 2022 Women & Hi Tech Board of Directors.  Our discussion on Cyber Hygiene will begin at 11:30 am.

    Meredith Harper, VP and Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), Lilly, https://www.linkedin.com/in/mrhciso/ 

    Chetrice Mosely-Romero, Cybersecurity Program Director at Indiana Office of Technology & Indiana Department of Homeland Security, https://www.linkedin.com/in/chetricemosley/
