Rep Reineke stated: “This is a unique opportunity for Tiffin University to display their talents in the fields of security and cyber security. This is exciting to welcome governmental experts to our community from all over the nation. Through this symposium, we can establish Tiffin’s place on the national scene with regard to cyber security research, training and education.”
