Cyber security fair logo

GCC’s students, staff and faculty are invited to join selected experts, representatives and area business leaders to explore how and why it is essential to safeguard online activities and assets in today’s ever-changing and increasingly complex techno-sphere.

During the Be Cyber Aware Fair, participating students, staff and faculty will earn tickets while gathering valuable information and more from the many presenters’ booths. Those tickets may then be redeemed for free pizza and prizes (GCC dining dollars and College Bookstore swag)!

“The resourceful departments at Genesee Community College are working hard to enlist various GCC student clubs and campus offices, as well as cyber security experts, to help educate everyone on the necessary precautions all online users should be taking,” Greg Brooks, Computer Services technician at GCC said. “This fair will showcase a variety of topics ranging from identity theft to searching and removing malware, cyber-bullying, thoughtful netiquette on social media sites and much more.”

Among the table-top presenters are Nina Buonarola from GreyCastle Security, John Dorak from Noyes Health, Tory Dombrowski from TakeForm, the GCC Records Office and the GCC Education Club.

Careers in cyber security will also be an important topic at the Be Cyber Aware Fair as the shortage for skilled cyber security employees remains a serious problem for today’s employers in nearly every industry.
