HCS is proud to be hosting Scott Bradner, the University Technology
Security Officer at Harvard. He'll be talking to us about security and
privacy at Harvard and beyond, about his work with ARIN, IETF, and the
Internet Society, and about the early days of building the Internet.
Hopefully, he'll share some stories from the early days of HCS, too -
he was one of our early advisors. If you want to know about how the
internet is governed, how new technologies are being integrated at
Harvard, or just want to hear about the state of security at Harvard,
join us!
