So, SJSU plans various events for this and there's a good one coming up next week you should go to. Sasha Hellberg knows this stuff inside & out. She's the Manager of Threat Research at Trend Micro, for Pete's sake. And she's a great speaker.
She's coming to SJSU to talk about attacks, best practices, and opportunities for careers, both technical AND NON-TECHNICAL (Yes, those exist. Totally.)
Oh, and it's free AND there will be "light refreshments." So, no excuses.
Put in on your calendar: Thursday, 10/12, 11:30-12:30pm in ENG 285/7.
