(Boston) — Richard A. Clarke, chief counter-terrorism adviser on the National Security Council for the latter part of the Clinton Administration and early in the George W. Bush Administration through the time of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and author of “Against All Enemies,” will address the Boston University-hosted Colloquium for Information Systems Security Education at 4:15 p.m. on Tuesday, June 5 at the School of Management Auditorium.

Clarke, currently chairman of Good Harbor Consulting, a strategic planning and corporate risk management firm, came to widespread public attention when he appeared on “60 Minutes” in March 2004 and was sharply critical of the Bush Administration’s attitude toward counter-terrorism and the decision to go to war with Iraq.

Immediately preceding Clarke will be Gregory Garcia, assistant secretary for Cyber Security & Telecommunications, Department of Homeland Security, at 3:30 p.m., who was appointed by DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff on September 18, 2006.

The 11th annual Colloquium (CISSE), hosted by BU’s Center for Reliable Information Systems and Cyber Security (RISCS), provides a forum for dialogue among leading figures in government, industry and academia to work in partnership to define current and emerging requirements for information security education, and to influence and encourage the development and expansion of information security curricula especially at the graduate and undergraduate levels.
