Emma Garrison-Alexander, DM, vice dean of UMUC's graduate cybersecurity program, is among a panel of three cyber industry professionals featured in a Baltimore Business Journal supplement, Table of Experts: Cybersecurity.

On November 3, 2017, the Baltimore Business Journal held a roundtable discussion about the importance of adequate cybersecurity measures and the biggest risks that organizations face today. Also included on the panel were Jeff Bathurst, director of technology advisory services for SC&H Group and David Greber, principal at Offit Kurman, Attorneys at Law.

Among other insights, Garrison-Alexander spoke of the importance of education across disciplines and of recognizing that cybersecurity involves more than just technology.

"One thing we do at UMUC is view cyber security holistically," said Garrison-Alexander. "For example, we offer a cybersecurity management and policy program because we recognize that cybersecurity is not just a technology problem. Technology people don't get together and work on a problem in isolation and then hand it over to policy, then legal, and then human resources. They must come together as a group to work on the problem and iron out a solution."
