Rep. Patrick Meehan (R-Penn.) will speak during a cyber security leadership program at Neumann University on Nov. 25 focusing on the political landscape of cyber security and data breaches.

James D. Schultz, general counsel for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, will join Neumann for the discussion.

Neumann was elected to Congress in 2010 and serves on the Homeland Security Committee where he was appointed chairman of the Subcommittee on Cyber security, Infrastructure Protection and Security Technologies.

He has been instrumental in bipartisan legislation that protects the government and private sector from online security breaches and helps them prepare in the case of an attack while still protecting the civil liberties of the people of the United States.

Cyber security for IT infrastructures has become an important topic for both governments and private companies as a system hack can result in the loss of classified information and customer details. A security breach can cost an organization thousands or even millions of dollars if they are not prepared. Most recently, there have been reports of hacks to U.S. retailers, compromising the information of thousands of customers.

The discussion will include tips for preventing cyber attacks and how to prepare in the case of an online data breach.

Cost is $39.
