Hear about Tor!
Andrew Lewman, Executive Director of The Tor Project, is coming to MIT. Tor was designed to protect government communications and is used today by many types of people for a wide variety of purposes to improve their privacy and security on the Internet.
Thursday, October 23, 12pm – 1:30pm, 37-252 (Marlar Lounge), RSVP required (email firstname.lastname@example.org) to attend and receive a free lunch
Are you a pack rat? Can’t seem to find the time to get rid of those old hard drives, thumb drives, CDs or digital tapes? Have mountains of old documents that might contain sensitive data but which aren’t needed anymore? Drop them off at the “Shred IT” table in the Stata Center. Paper will be shredded by Cintas, a professional document management company. Electronic media will be collected and disposed of securely with coordination by Distributed IT Resources (DITR).
Friday, October 24, 10am – 2pm, Stata Center Lobby (Building 32)
Spread the word about NCSAM and these events, and we look forward to seeing you there.
