Cybersecurity Film Series

In 2019, the Center for Cybersecurity began highlighting important cybersecurity issues through documentary films as part of its inaugural Cybersecurity Film Series. Films are shown throughout October in conjunction with Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Students, faculty, staff, and members of the community are welcome to attend any showing. After each film, attendees are encouraged to ask questions and discuss topics from the film in our post-film Q&A session.
