Science, Technology, Innovation and Policy Leadership Lecture Series

Presenter: Ralph Langner, Principal, The Langner group
Title: The Future of Critical Infrastructure Cyber Security

Events such as Stuxnet, the 2015 power outage in parts of Ukraine, the Mirai IoT Botnet or the recent WannaCry ransomware campaign illustrate the potential national and international impacts of high-profile cyber-attacks. In a world that's doing everything to increase the pervasiveness of digital technology this raises the question what's going to come next and how to prepare against next-level cyber-attacks against critical infrastructure and defense systems. Ralph Langner will share his thoughts based on more than 20 years of experience in the field.

Reception will precede and follow presentation. Presentation begins at 4:30 p.m.

Sponsored by the Office of the Vice President of the National Capital Region

Strengthening Talent Pipelines Through Experiential Learning Opportunities

Virginia Tech is asking for your help so that we can better serve your employment needs.

As an institution, we are committed to engaging every student in purpose-driven experiential learning, such as internships with industry partners. We are actively seeking ways to adapt our current educational models to ensure that Virginia Tech students (and ultimately, graduates) are among the best prepared to lead and serve in an ever-changing workforce.

We invite HR /human capital officers to provide input at a participatory design workshop that will explore these questions: Where are our students most successful in internship positions and where are they are falling short? How can we better prepare them for the reality of the work they are doing? What in our curriculum needs updating? How can we better support you in reaching and identifying appropriate students for internships in your organization? What opportunities can we explore together to increase access to internships and other experiential learning opportunities?
