NY cyber security pros gather in Albany

ALBANY — Computer professionals from around New York are gathering in Albany this week for updates on what conference organizers call an evolving and growing threat to cyber security with an increasing portion of America’s economy and society now online.

Roberta Stempfley, deputy assistant secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, is scheduled Tuesday morning to address the gathering, which drew 1,000 participants last year.

She is director of the department’s National Cyber Security Division, responsible for leading the collaboration between the agency and private sector.

That includes deploying a risk-management program and building a national response system.

The State University at Albany’s College of Computing and Information is a co-host of the two-day conference.
An academic symposium on information assurance runs concurrently.
