Experts and Industry Professionals to Discuss Cyber Security on April 28 in Philadelphia


What: The 33rd Annual Monetary and Trade Conference: Cyber Security in a Globally Integrated World

Cyber security is not something many of us think about every day. But—as recent international “hacking” events show—it is all around us. More and more personal data is being put online, from personal records to medical information to payment details. But the internet respects no country’s boundary. This conference—hosted by the Global Interdependence Center and Drexel LeBow College of Business—will focus on the geopolitical, legal and technical aspects of cyber security in the modern world.

Where: Gerri C. LeBow Hall
Drexel LeBow College of Business
3220 Market Street
Philadelphia, PA 19104

When: April 28, 2015, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

  • Rob D’Ovidio, Ph.D., associate professor of criminology and justice studies and associate dean for humanities and social science research at the College of Arts and Sciences at Drexel University;
  • Joseph Ingemi, data security and privacy consultant, IBM;
