Jan 05, 2012
World Class Faculty & Research


The University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business in partnership with the School of Public Policy is pleased to present the Eighth Annual Forum on Financial Information Systems and Cybersecurity: A Public Policy Perspective on Wednesday, January 18, 2012. The forum is intended to encourage the exchange of ideas among a small group of researchers and executives who share a common interest in issues related to financial information systems and cybersecurity.

The forum, which is managed by Larry Gordon, Ernst & Young Alumni Professor of Managerial Accounting, Martin Loeb, professor of accounting and information assurance and Deloitte & Touche LLP Faculty Fellow, and William Lucyshyn, director of research and senior research scholar at the University of Maryland School of Public Policy, encourages the kind of rich interchange of ideas that can only occur when people from many academic backgrounds and industries gather.

The Smith School’s cybersecurity research is part of a wider university focus on cybersecurity issues, highlighted by the recent launch of the Maryland Cybersecurity Center. The center brings together experts from engineering and computer science with colleagues from across campus in fields such as economics, social sciences and public policy to help establish broad-based cybersecurity initiatives.
