ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Where’s my spaceship?  OK, you’ve probably never been asked that - but Dr. Greg Holt has.  He is the Navigation Lead for the Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle at NASA Johnson Space Center.  As an engineer with over 10 years of NASA service, he has enjoyed many opportunities to be active in outreach, education, and technical leadership.  He was a Mission Control navigator for 8 Space Shuttle missions and most recently the Orion Exploration Flight Test in 2014, receiving a host of nifty-sounding accolades including the JSC Director’s Commendation, NASA Spaceflight Awareness Award, and NASA Software of the Year.  When he’s not busy telling astronauts where to go, Greg enjoys acapella music and trying to keep four young kids from tearing the house down.

Data breaches, hackers, infiltration ā€“ oh my, Iā€™m just a small business owner!
The number of reported cyber incidents in the United States each year is increasing, and the Nation faces persistent challenges with a widespread, growing, and ever-changing threat of cyber-attacks and an insufficient number of cybersecurity professionals. As small businesses utilize the internet network, the risk of a small business experiencing a major cyber-incident is high. This talk will highlight the importance of emphasizing and integrating cybersecurity awareness and what you can do to assist in protecting your data and your customer’s data.
