MCRCon Cybersecurity Conference


    By Brian Warkoczeski - April 16, 2014 3:18 pm

"Are You Safe in the Internet of Things?" is the theme of this year's MCRCon cybersecurity conference in Ypsilanti. The Internet of Things (IoT) continues to grow as more and more things are connected to the Internet. Phones, televisions, appliances, vehicles, eyewear, powerplants, security systems, and more are sending and receiving information. Who's keeping your information safe?

MCRCon, on May 20, 2014, will feature three prominent speakers from industry to discuss the Internet of Things and other cybersecurity issues:
  • Greg Conti, Director, U.S. Army Cyber Research Center and Associate Professor of Computer Science, United States Military Academy at West Point, New York.

  • Chris Roberts, Founder, CISO and CTO, One World Labs.

  • J Wolfgang Goerlich, Vice President of Consulting Services, VioPoint Inc.

MCRCon will be held from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 20, at the Ann Arbor Marriott Ypsilanti at Eagle Crest, which is located at 1275 S Huron Street in Ypsilanti.

During MCRCon, the staff of the Michigan Cyber Range will demonstrate the capabilities of the range and Alphaville, the secure environment that enables users to practice cybersecurity techniques. Alphaville can be used for live-fire cybersecurity exercises and to practice securing SCADA systems, servers, and a variety of IT environments.

Attendees can participate in a capture the flag (CTF) challenge during the event. The CTF event is set in a virtual environment within the Michigan Cyber Range. Participants will navigate through the environment's heterogeneous network finding clues and collecting flags. Prizes will be awarded to first, second, and third place winners.

Admission to MCRCon is $75. You can register online at: www.merit.edu/mcrcon/
