The Lares Institute announced today the launch of the CyberSide Chat Series—a new way to bring thought leadership to you. Technology continues to change how we learn and gather information, and the Lares Institute has launched this series to make thought leadership more readily available through the use of technology. According to Executive Director Andrew Serwin, “The goal is to have conversations with thought leaders in a small setting, but to make the conversations more accessible via technology.” Serwin continued, “The goal is to move the fireside chat into the 21st Century, through ‘cyberspace’, and therefore these will be CyberSide chats.”
The topics will also focus initially on cybersecurity, but will also include a variety of other topics and issues over time.
The National Cyber Security Alliance is one of the leading cybersecurity organizations, and the Lares Institute is also pleased to announce that the first CyberSide Chat was recently completed, and Michael Kaiser, the Executive Director of NCSA was the first guest. “NCSA was honored to kick off the CyberSide Chat series. We applaud the mission to inspire conversation utilizing technology in order to create a culture of cybersecurity; the Cyberside Chats offer a perfect platform in which to do so,” stated Kaiser. “With the recent success of October’s National Cyber Security Alliance Month, we are now eager to spread the word about Data Privacy Day on January 28 and other year-round initiatives designed to keep consumers and businesses safe online. There is no shortage of critical information to share, and we are committed to supporting these Chats.”
