The Cybersecurity Roundtable is returning to Estrella Mountain Community College with a focus on the “human element.”

The free Wednesday, November 14, event is open to the public and allows guests to learn about cyber intelligence, human behavior and personal incident response.

Cybersecurity industry leaders are scheduled to speak including Roy Zur, founder and CEO of Cybint; Andy Jordan, senior security architect at Mosaic451; and Bryan Dickens, retired FBI behavioral profiler now working with Cybint.

This roundtable event features first-hand accounts of daily life as told by industry leaders and includes extensive Q&A to ensure attendee participation.

Zur has more than a decade of experience in cyber and intelligence operations from the Israeli Security Forces (retired major) and has developed cybereducation programs and technical solutions for companies, educational institutes and government agencies around the world.

Over Jordan’s 12-year career, he has built and managed multiple cybersecurity teams. He specializes in helping organizations gain visibility for how technical risks related to the overarching business risks.

Dickens is a retired FBI behavioral profiler. During his tenure with the bureau, he was involved in effectively developing and delivering hundreds of behavioral and psychological profiles to apprehend the most prolific violent offenders of the last 20 years. His efforts helped result in more than 665 convictions at a 97 percent rate.

The roundtable begins with a meet and greet/pizza party with the speakers from 5 to 6 p.m. at EMCC’s Center for Teaching and Learning, 3000 N. Dysart Road, Avondale. The presentation runs from 6 to 8 p.m.
