About this Event
Join us to hear Brad Reaves, an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science and a member of the Wolfpack Security and Privacy Research Lab at NC State, present NC State’s Cybersecurity Awareness Month keynote address. Reaves will discuss "Who's Calling? Understanding the Scourge of Robocalls."
Telephone subscribers in the U.S. are inundated by frequent unsolicited calls known as robocalls, and this is arguably one of the greatest cybersecurity issues facing people today. In this talk, Reaves will explain how and why the robocall problem became so significant, how NC State research reveals how these robocallers operate and what is being done to put an end to the problem.
There will be an opportunity to win great prizes, including an Apple Watch. For information about other planned security events, see NC State’s Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2021 website.
