Monthly Luncheon featuring or member Brian Kelly '61.  He will give us an overview of  the use of computer technology to disrupt the activities of a nation or organization, especially the deliberate attacking of information systems for strategic or military purposes.  Those knowledgeable of cyber warfare believe it is the greatest threat to our democracy and our personal security for the rest of our lives.  We will review our nation's and our allies cyber story - successes and defeats - and review the cyber activities of one of the U.S.'s most potent adversaries - Russia.  The goal is not to make you a "cyber warrior," but to raise your understanding of the highly secretive and largely invisible cyber weapon world, so that we, as a society, may help shape conversations before it is too late.
Brian Kelly, '61, is Past President of the Yale Club of the Suncoast and a current board member.  He spent 36 years in the petroleum industry, based in Italy for 9 years.  Articulate, insightful, with a great sense of humor, Brian is an acclaimed public speaker. 

For at least November and December, we will generally follow the check-in procedures adopted by the Sarasota arts community.  Each member and guest attending the luncheon will need to show a negative Covid-19 test within 72 hours prior to the event or proof that the member or guest has been fully vaccinated 14 days prior to the event.  If a member or guest who has been fully vaccinated prefers to avoid having to bring proof of vaccination to this and future events, he or she may send a photocopy of the proof of vaccination to ojjanney@outlook.com or fax it to (941) 847-0990 at least 24 hours prior to the luncheon.
