The Second Annual White Hat Conference will take place virtually on June 1 & 2, 2021, and will be hosted by Boston University Metropolitan College’s Criminal Justice Graduate Programs and the Center for Cybercrime Investigation and Cybersecurity. Supported by the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), and in partnership with Utica College, the virtual White Hat Conference will gather cybersecurity resources and criminal justice talent to address this year’s theme, “The Future of Cybercrime and Its Challenges: Innovative Solutions Against Cybercrime.” From ransomware to cyberterrorism, security breaches, identity theft, online drug-trafficking, cyberbullying, and beyond, online crimes are on the rise, and despite heightened concern for the role technology plays in online victimization, many law enforcement agencies remain understaffed and under-resourced to defend against developing cybercrime threats. There is no fee to attend, and we do ask that you please register. Register to attend the 2021 White Hat Conference and join the effort to bring disruptive change to cybercrime and explore what global measures could bring about effective criminal justice policies and preventive measures.
