A discussion with Scott Bradner

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!
