Cybersecurity Conference / Murph the Surf
With the increasing threats of computer hacking and data thefts, the University of South Florida recently hosted a conference put on by the Florida Center for Cybersecurity. Find out what kinds of information experts from private industry, the government, and education shared on University Beat on WUSF TV. Also: Fifty years ago, a group of thieves pulled off what’s been called the largest jewelry heist in U.S. history when they stole precious gems from the American Museum of Natural History in New York. One of the thieves, Jack “Murph the Surf” Murphy, was later sentenced to life in prison for murder – but he turned his life around and is now speaking out around the world about the power of redemption. Murphy recently shared his story with a class of criminal justice students at USF; we’ll have details on this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
