Meeting Terrorism's Challenges
Last Fall we began a series of presentations to help the community learn
about a wide range of issues that fall under the general topic of terrorism.
These are part of the outreach program of our Rocky Mountain Center for
Homeland Defense & Preparedness, a component of the
Research Institute of the University of Denver.
It is important for you to know that many of the topics that are discussed,
while related to terrorism, impact a variety of issues that we confront in modern living.
An excellent example of this occurred on April 25th when we offered
a presentation featuring nationally recognized experts
on a topic of concern to every citizen of America.
"Identity Theft, CyberCrime and Terrorism"
Participants included the Attorney General of the State of Colorado,
a CyberCrime expert from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI),
a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Denver,
a security expert from Lockheed-Martin,
and the Dean of the School of Engineering and Computer Science
at the University of Denver.
on Identity Theft and CyberCrime
Some of these are only a few pages long while others are quite extensive. Reference #8 includes some necessary forms. References 1 and 4 should be thought of as a "set" since they represent "Prevention" and "What do I do now that I am a victim?"
