Illinois Tech’s Dawson to Present Research at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

Illinois Institute of Technology Assistant Professor of Information Technology and Management Maurice Dawson will present his research titled “Unprepared for Cybersecurity in Saudi Arabia: Argument for a Shift Towards Cyber Readiness” on May 3 on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in Milwaukee. 

Dawson argues about the need for Saudi Arabia to better arm itself against cyber threats in the paper. He uses recent cyberattacks against government entities in the kingdom to show that these type of aggressions “render a sector vulnerable” and demonstrate why new laws, security-hardened technologies, and education is needed there.
