National Expert Visiting Pittsburgh to Speak on Cyber Security

January 10, 2013

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Western Pennsylvania corporate and foundation leaders, law enforcement and cyber professionals will hear from one of the nation's leading experts on cyber security over the next two days. Paul G. Kaminski, chair of the RAND Corporation and chairman and CEO of Technovation, Inc., is visiting Pittsburgh to deliver a series of speeches dealing with the cyber threat and national and economic security. U.S. Attorney David J. Hickton invited Dr. Kaminski to visit the area to stress the importance of addressing the contemporary cyber threat.

Cybersecurity has been one of U.S. Attorney Hickton's areas of focus during his tenure. "Cyber threats represent both a real challenge for Western Pennsylvania, as illustrated by last year's bomb threats against the University of Pittsburgh and the continuing denial-of-service attacks on area banks, and an opportunity given the resources at our universities," he said.

Dr. Kaminski will be available for interviews on Jan. 11, at 11:15 a.m. in the U.S. Attorney's Office.
