  • 1:30 Privacy in the Digital Age

    You have a sense of computer security at the workplace, but how protected are your computer files when you’re out of the office? Is the hotel’s Wi-Fi safe to use? What about when you’re traveling on a train, waiting in an airport, or working at your local coffee shop? Jerry Sussman, a premier cyber security expert, and his daughter Rebecca Sussman, an attorney in the field of cyber security, will be tackling those questions with answers that will be sure to shock even the most computer-savvy of you. But don’t worry… they’ll also be providing state-of-the-art solutions for helping you to protect your business (and personal) data from being hacked.


After graduating from Washington College with honors in three years and inducted into Phi Beta Kappa, Rebecca Sussman went on to pursue a law degree from Emory University School of Law.  While in school, she served as president of the National Security & Military Law Practice Society and worked at Emory’s International Humanitarian Law Clinic where she focused on e-discovery and cyberlaw. 

In 2017, Rebecca received the high honor of having her article, “The Reusable Bomb: Exploring How the Law of Armed Conflict Applies in Cyberspace, published in Boston University’s Journal of Science and Technology Law.

Upon receiving her Juris Doctor, Rebecca began working as an associate for in-house counsel at a utility management company.  She is currently pursuing the prestigious certification as a Certified Information Systems Security Professional, joining the ranks of only about 140,000 people worldwide.
