Intel Security Chief to Speak at MHCC about Cybersecurity

Posted: March 15, 2013

Malcolm Harkins, vice president and chief information security officer at Intel, will speak about the “Cyber Risks Facing Business,” April 11, 9 a.m., in room AC1271 at Mt. Hood Community College (MHCC).

The event is free and open to the public, with limited seating. Parking is free on all MHCC campuses, no permit required. MHCC is located at 26000 S.E. Stark Street in Gresham.

Cyber attacks have resulted in the theft of confidential data from many corporations and government institutions. Companies such as Intel are on the front lines of this new cyber war.

“While the United States is the most technologically advanced nation in the world, most people do not realize just how vulnerable we are,” says Wayne Machuca, Ph.D., MHCC computer information systems /Web instructor. “The widespread use of everything mobile has put our country at great risk.”

MHCC began a two-year Networking and Cybersecurity program last fall to prepare graduates for promising careers in this important new field, and is the only community college in Oregon to offer an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in cybersecurity and networking.
