Cyber Security 101 - Learn how to protect your Business
Sylvania Country Club

Come join the arakÿta team for lunch and learn the basics about Cyber Security. We will provide information to protect your business from a cyber-attack!

Most small-to-midsized business owners think a cybersecurity breach won’t happen to them. Think again. Whether you’re a one- or two-person shop or a thousand-person company, the risk of being hacked is about the same. SMB's are prime targets because about 65 percent of them have no data security policy and their cybersecurity defenses and employee knowledge are not prepared to deal with today’s advanced threats. About 80% of today's workforce has no cyber security training. 95 percent of all security incidents involve human error from lack of awareness.

The arakÿta team would like to help develop best practices across your organization, and prepare for the global threats that are aimed at small-to-midsized businesses.

Leave this event knowing you are more aware and prepared to deal with these cyber-attacks.

You MUST register for this event, please ONLY register if you can attend as our seating is limited.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and we look forward to seeing you there.

So. Much. Tech #AugmentedRealityLearningExperiences
University of Findlay - Davis 2225

The real world is not flat after all, so why constrain our classrooms to experience the digital world on a flat screen? The shift from 2D to 3D is as natural as adding color to movies and television was in the 1950’s. In many ways, it is even more impactful. Virtual and Augmented Reality is changing education. What started out as something that was simply “cool” has become a way to engage learners like never before. Join us to experience ten different virtual reality classroom activities including an Oculus Rift and HoloLens!

The speaker: Corinne Hoisington is a full-time professor of Information Systems Technology at Central Virginia Community College in Lynchburg, Virginia, with more than 25 years of teaching experience. Corinne travels over 200,000 miles a year delivering keynote addresses to college and university professors and K-12 educators in over 70 cities worldwide for customers such as the Microsoft Corporation, Microsoft Camp 21 International Events, Cengage Learning, Capital One International Bank, Executive LIVE 2017 in London, and the international South by Southwest (SXSW) event in Austin, Texas. Professor Hoisington is the recipient of the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional award in Computer Programming. Corinne has authored over 20 textbooks with Cengage Learning/National Geographic on topics such as Android Studio Boot Camp, Dreamweaver Creative Cloud, Outlook 2016, Office 2016, Microsoft Windows, Technology Now, and Visual Basic 2017.

Midwest UX (Cincinnati)
through

On Oct. 12-14, 2017, Cincinnati will host the seventh annual Midwest UX Conference. The regional conference celebrates the growing practice of user experience design, and since its inception in 2011, has been held in Columbus, Grand Rapids, Indianapolis, Louisville and Pittsburgh.

“The conference is a reflection of the host city and the UX community within it,” said Jessica Schomaker, Cincinnati MWUX chair. “It’s really refreshing to get to go to all of these cities and see the UX communities there.”

The three-day event will feature hands-on workshops, keynote speakers, city excursions and networking events. Keynotes will be held at Memorial Hall, workshops will be at Cintrifuse and other locations in Over-the-Rhine and the closing party will be held at the Contemporary Arts Center.

Day one of the conference is workshop-based. Attendees will be able to go into the sessions and meet with international industry leaders who will teach skills needed for UX design. Cincinnati is in the middle of redefining itself. “It's a reflection of what UX does — it improves user experience, just like Cincinnati is doing,” Jessica Schomaker.

“I moved here not too long ago and took a UX job,” Schomaker said. “The UX community in Cincinnati is remarkable, and the quality of people and conversations I’ve had are remarkable. It would be surprising to people outside of the Midwest that these conversations and groups are here because the perception is that good design happens on the coast. But good design is happening in the Midwest too.”

She feels that with the renaissance of OTR and downtown, Cincinnati is in the middle of redefining itself. “It’s a reflection of what UX does — it improves user experience, just like Cincinnati is doing.”

The Midwest UX Conference is entirely volunteer-based. With each new host city, new conference chairs are chosen from the local UX community, which allows each city to put on the best conference possible for the region.

“We get to highlight things that are happening in the city and highlight our favorite places,” Schomaker said.

Distinguished Lecture on IoT by Fawzi Behmann
Nitschke Technology Commercialization Complex - NT1000 The University of Toledo 1510 N. Westwood, Toledo, OH 43607

What do smart grids, virtual power plants and smart homes have in common? They are part of the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT is the inter-networking of physical devices embedded with control systems, sensors, and actuators, that can collect and exchange data.

The IoT makes it possible to collect real-time power-related information from end-users and automate the management of distribution devices like transformers and reclosers. Efficiencies can therefore be gained within power production and distribution systems.

For the end-user, it is expected that IoT will be integrated into all forms of energy consuming devices (such as switches, power outlets, bulbs, televisions, etc.). Such IoT devices would offer the opportunity for off-site management and advanced scheduling.

IEEE Distinguished Visitor Fawzi Behmann is an expert on IoT.
