 A Business Perspective on Cybersecurity

A Presentation by James R. Elste

Cybersecurity is a critical business issue as illustrated in a recent survey of Board of Directors and C-suite executives. What executives are beginning to realize is, they need to understand and approach cybersecurity as an enterprise wide risk management issue, not just an IT issue.

This presentation, which is open to all majors, will focus on the business perspective and management issues created by cybersecurity risk. We will explore the cybersecurity landscape, leading management practices, and strategies to address these new business realities. We will also highlight the professional opportunities in cybersecurity for business majors.

Business Week is Coming!

The College of Business 4th annual Business Week celebration starts in just a few days! We are so excited for all of the events. Business Week really is a celebration of all things business, and each event is designed to help our students and faculty become more connected and more well-informed about what is currently going on in the business community.

This year we’ve organized a brand new event for prospective business students—a tour of the campus and college along with a free barbeque and visit to a business class scheduled for Monday, September 26. This event is designed for anyone who might be interested in coming to the College of Business. Please invite your friends and family to check us out!

Then on Tuesday, September 27 we have the Business Major & Resource Fair and Career Exploration Roundtables. This event offers our current students a chance to learn more about each major available in the college, and to talk to businesspeople about what they do and opportunities in various business fields.

I hope that you can join us for one of these great events. Click here for event details and to review the entire Business Week calendar.

Reno Fun

Now to write about something else dear to my heart—something other than working with students at Nevada—and that is the city of Reno. I moved to Reno 12 years ago and I absolutely love it here. First, we live in close proximity to a wide variety of geological and geographical features, including San Francisco, Lake Tahoe, beautiful and interesting desert places to the south and east, and so on and so on. I spend a lot of time enjoying Reno, but my family and I are very likely during the summer and fall months to be spending a weekend in San Francisco, Tahoe, Lovelock, Bishop, Icehouse Reservoir, or some other sweet campsite or town within a couple hours’ drive from Reno.

I also really appreciate Reno as a festival city—a place that dedicates resources to bringing in cool events for locals and tourists alike. This weekend, it’s the Rib Cook-Off, and next weekend, the Great Reno Balloon Race. Whether you wake up early three days in a row to check out the beautiful balloons rising up over west Reno out of Rancho San Rafael Park, or you just happen to have an 8:00 or 9:00 class on Thursday or Friday and you spot those same beautiful balloons cruising directly over our campus, I hope that you will appreciate how amazing it is to have this kind of thing right in our own backyard.

(Of course—I can’t forget to mention Burning Man at this time of year—check out the pictures and go if you get a chance. It is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience, unless you love it so much that you have to go back year after year!)

Come say hi during the Balloon Races—I’ll be helping crew (set-up, chase, and take-down) for my father-in-law’s balloon:

Kearney's Mistress

I hope that you come to love Reno as much as I do. Enjoy!
