“Three tech truths you will be taking away this summer” – Cyber Security
James D. McFarlin is a former Air Force officer and Silicon Valley high-tech CEO. Jim is an internationally-read author and national speaker on cybersecurity, cybercrime and cyberterrorism.
McFarlin serves as cybersecurity technology advisor to the Rancho Mirage Emergency Preparedness Commission and is active in the CyberPatriot National Youth Education Program; which provided 2018 cybersecurity education and scholarships for 20,000 high school students nationwide.
McFarlin’s bestselling novel “AFTERSHOCK”, is a Mission Impossible-style cyber thriller, which includes complete power grid failure, fake news and a conspiracy to take down a sitting president. Although it was written before Donald Trump became President, it does sound familiar. Aftershock is available from Amazon and Kindle.
Jim’s talk will certainly give us something to ponder, in the mysterious world of cyber security.
