This event is part of the “Making Research Real” series, hosted by Boston University.

When the general public thinks of the hazards of the Internet, they think about phishing schemes or SQL injection. Not the 95% of the Internet we don’t see — like how email is delivered or Netflix is streamed. The fact is, most of the web is still unsecured and there’s plenty to worry about beyond devising a foolproof password.

Join Boston University Provost Jean Morrison and honorary co-hosts the Congressional Cybersecurity Caucus for an illuminating panel discussion with leading researchers, policymakers, and government officials on the true breadth of Internet insecurity and what can (or can’t) be done to fix it.
