Florida Tech’s Department of Computer Sciences Presents Free Event

MELBOURNE, FLA. — The proliferation of mobile electronic devices such as smart phones, tablets and laptops has dramatically increased the collection and communication of digital information.

This growth has also increased the spotlight on data privacy and ways to ensure it, including by the practice of cryptography, which studies how to protect private data from unintended audiences.

Three computer science scholars at Florida Institute of Technology will offer a free, interactive lecture from 7-8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 15, in Room 118 of the Olin Engineering Building on the university’s Melbourne campus. The public is invited to attend.

Philip Chan, Marius Silaghi and Ryan Stansifer will present, “Cryptography: A Closer Look at Protecting Digital Secrets,” in which they take a closer look at cryptography. The presentation will also include an interactive demonstration using audience members’ smart phones.

The lecture is sponsored by Florida Tech’s Department of Computer Sciences.
