Statewide High Demand Causes MTAM’s Mobile Monday Michigan Detroit Chapter to Take Advantage of Facebook LIVE-Streaming Technology to Make It’s Event Available Throughout Michigan
DETROIT, MI – Due to a high volume of requests from throughout the State of Michigan, the Detroit Chapter of Mobile Monday Michigan will be making its November 14th CyberSecurity Careers event available on Facebook Live starting at 6:00 p.m. Monday evening.
Those interested in viewing the event via Facebook LIVE should “Like” the Mobile Technology Association of Michigan page on Facebook, and then look for streaming to begin at 6:00 p.m. on Monday. The tech team at RIIS will be facilitating the streaming for the Mobile Monday Detroit event.
According to Mobile Technology Association of Michigan Executive Director, Linda Daichendt, “Once word starting getting out about the event, my email started to blow up with interest from around the state. I was contacted by students, educators and even business owners who were extremely interested in hearing what these highly qualified speakers and panel members had to say, but were unable to make it to Southeast Michigan to attend. We had inquiries from the UP, Traverse City, Kalamazoo and many other areas of the state. Therefore we started looking at what options we might have with a quick turn-around, and decided that Facebook LIVE could meet our needs.” says Daichendt, “Right now it’s an experiment for us, we’ll see how it goes before determining if it’s something we’ll continue in future.”
CyberSecurity is one of the most high profile issues in today’s increasingly connected world. With major companies around the world being hacked on an almost weekly basis, and the Internet of Things offering us the opportunity to bring convenience into our homes thru connected devices, CyberSecurity expertise is becoming one of the most sought-after skills for today’s companies in every industry – and the demand is only expected to climb for many years to come!
Monday’s event will feature a variety of experts to educate us about the diverse career opportunities available in the CyberSecurity field, the qualifications required, and what life is like on-the-job.
Our featured speakers who will focus on the level of demand for CyberSecurity expertise and the types of jobs being staffed will be:
- Colleen Riccinto, Founder, Cyber Talent Search
- Hector Acosta, Research & Policy Analyst, Workforce Intelligence Network (WIN)
Panelists who will talk about their experience working in the field include:
- Jane Harper, Director – Privacy & Security Risk Management Services, Henry Ford Health Systems
- Godfrey Nolan, Founder/CEO, RIIS
- Barbara Ciaramitaro, Director for CyberSecurity Leadership, Walsh College
- Natalie Blackbourne, President, Blackbourne Worldwide
- Lou LeBrecque, Executive Vice-president, Authen2cate
The event is free to attend in-person but advance reservations via Meetup ARE REQUIRED; make your reservation for in-person attendance at http://meetup.com/Mobile-Monday-Detroit. Refreshments will be served courtesy of our host and sponsor, RIIS. Free parking is available onsite.
